Nestled in the heart of New York City, audio post production house Mixopolis recently purchased a Fairlight Xynergi system in order to maximize potential and optimize workflow within their state-of-the-art mixing facility, providing television and radio advertising agencies high quality promotional material.
Mixopolis deploys Fairlight for post work including voiceover recording, lock to picture, sound effects and sound design. The ability to intake all audio and video formats through the Xynergi console allows them to stay on top of the game and offers the flexibility to handle any project.
Currently featuring work on Macy’s ‘Shop For A Cause’ campaign as well as other television spots and shows for NBC and HBO, Mixopolis continues to grow. With the addition of another Fairlight system, this time a Xynergi, Mixopolis looks to extend their reputation for delivering quality projects and top-notch client service from start to finish.
The addition of Fairlight’s Xynergi provides a secondary system that will allow the Mixopolis team to access projects and files while their other studio rooms are occupied. “It’s great to have the ability of prepping files or projects on the stand alone system,” said Mitch Raboy, owner, Mixopolis. “It fits perfectly in the area near our music library and is easy to access by everyone.”
For a system that wasn’t originally meant for full project development, Raboy and his team have been able to utilize it extensively due to ease of use and ability to edit material very quickly. “We all love the Constellation we have in our mixing room. This makes it easy for our team to take advantage of the second system. To our surprise it has been used regularly and we’ve even done a few complete projects on it.”
Raboy continues,” We’ve maintained an upgrade path and still have and use the CC1/Constellation in house, which has been a work-horse throughout the years. The addition of Fairlight to be able to drag and drop any file format to the timeline has been the deal maker. This was a huge step in the process to save time. We can now store video with the project and don’t need any other peripherals.”
Although Raboy and his team are not new to the workings of the Xynergi, some of the settings and processes of the console continue to make projects simpler. “The automation is great, being able to copy past projects to the current timeline saves time when working on multiple versions of a commercial. Having touch-sensitive faders and knobs under my hands is awesome. It’s great not having to use a mouse. Whatever knob or setting you’re looking for it’s right on the console.”
“Overall Fairlight has been there through it all and helped us to do our jobs at the highest level. The support has been outstanding and gives us confidence that we can tackle any job that comes our way,” Raboy summed up.
