06-13-2014 08:31 AM

Recently we featured a time lapse video showing the refurbishment of Molinare’s Dub A studio. Our friends at Scrub, a division of HHB Communications Ltd have told us that they supplied Molinare Post Production with major upgrades to its audio dubbing theatres that include a Soundminer v4.5 Pro installation and Pro Tools HDX upgrades.
Upgrade To Pro Tools HDX

Scrub in fact did a lot more, updating all eight dubbing theatres to the latest Pro Tools HDX hardware, a process that began with the installation of an Avid S5 Fusion console with HDX in Dub A and HDX in Dub B in the summer of 2013. The second phase included integrating HDX and the Soundminer Pro effects engine in all of Molinare’s dubbing theatres and support suites across both of its Soho locations. Scrub has helped with the installation of three Soundminer v4.5 Pro licences and 11 Soundminer HD Plus licenses.
Soundminer Installed At Molinare

Molinare’s audio facilities are connected to the Soundminer database over an Ethernet connection that is supported by a 24 terabyte storage system. It is a fully scalable system that allows Molinare’s engineers to access sound libraries from any computer in the network simultaneously. Soundminer is also fully compatible with Pro Tools and other leading DAWs. Molinare Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer Jeremy Price explains that Soundminer is an invaluable tool for managing his sound library of over 100,000 sound effects:

“Soundminer is fantastic because the advanced metadata functions provide instantaneous and relevant results for any search. Literally, within seconds I can find any one of my effects from an enormous library. I’m also constantly creating new sounds that I load back into Soundminer with metadata so that I am continuously building a search-friendly library.”

Molinare General Manager - Technology Richard Wilding commented on upgrading to Pro Tools HDX, he told us…

“It is integral to our workflow that we not only have standardised technology across our studios, but that those tools are in line with the numerous external facilities we collaborate with. Updating to Pro Tools HDX has given us an incredible enhancement in speed and performance and provided a standard platform that enables better collaboration throughout the various stages of a project. Scrub was fantastic in assisting us throughout the process and their technical knowledge and support are a value-added service that we can rely on.”
Great Dealer Support

Yet again here is a proper dealer guiding their client through an upgrade process in a very busy facility that cannot afford to be ‘off’ because there was a problem or delay with the upgrade, Scrub and the team at HHB have huge amounts of experience of handling upgrades in large facilities like Molinare and Abbey Road.
