Sound Design & Editorial
Sound editorial and design is the process of identifying, creating, and sculpting the sounds that will comprise the final soundtrack of your project and support your story. Many creators believe they have finished the picture editing process with a pretty good track, but there is usually room for sonic improvements. We completely rebuild your dialog from dailies. We create, edit and sweeten multiple sound effects to give your track texture and depth. The result is a final mix that is creative and exciting for you to be part of. You'll love the end results of the mix, but you'll enjoy the process of getting there even more.
Our new state of the art mix stages are controlled by various Avid mixing consoles and run Protools versions 10 - 12 for television, feature and gaming titles. We mix everything from theatrical features to TV documentaries and interactive gaming content. We are heavily versed in fulfilling different required deliverables for a multitude of projects. Monitoring is based on multiple JBL speaker systems and the rooms are kept in acoustically tuned specifications by Dolby Laboratories. While primarily booked on Smart Post Sound projects the rooms can also be booked with or without our roster of mixers for external mixing projects or "four-walling".
ADR & Voiceover
Automatic Dialogue Replacement - ADR, looping, or post-sync recording - and voiceover have been a much sought after service at Smart Post since it's inception. Our stages are well known throughout the industry as the very best in town drawing clients from all around the world on a daily basis. Our ADR stages at Smart Post West are spacious enough for group, or principal talent, while our control room can accommodate multiple executives with ease. We also offer remote playback and recording through Source Connect - Source Connect - ID: SMARTPOSTWEST, Zoom, Skype, Phone Patch, and/or Facetime. Our ADR stages are also equipped with dedicated camera feeds that allow for a truly unique client/talent interaction.
Smart Post is known for creating and crafting some of the best foley in the industry. Footsteps and sound effects are recorded with an emphasis on a "natural" sound. Our stages are divided into dedicated acoustical "zones" in order to capture the natural acoustic feelings of each space and achieve correct perspective within the recordings.
