Birmingham’s Audio Suite moves and hires
Posted on: Tuesday 11th of May 2021
The Birmingham, UK-based Audio Suite facility has made a move to a historic building in the City’s Jewellery quarter and appointed engineer, mixer and producer Marcus Byrne as director of UK audio post-production.
The move will see a master control room with Avid HDX2 running Pro Tools Ultimate through an Avid D-Command ES console, coupled to the Avid MTRX Studio audio interface, NLA Video Slave 4 ADR hardware and software, SSL and Focusrite pre-amps, with Neumann and PMC monitoring. ADR sessions will also benefit from a larger workspace of 4.2 x 2.5m, with sufficient space for boom recording.
The appointment of Byrne augments the Audio Suite team with someone whose CV includes recording and playing on albums with acts such as The Sugarbabes, One Republic, Mika, The Saturdays, and Annie Lennox; as well as live performances with Take That.
Managing Director, Dr. Neil Hillman, says “We are obviously delighted to welcome Marcus on board. His almost-25 years of studio engineering and mixing experience is an amazing fit; and the fact that our long-term relationship with each other has always been as collaborators, rather than rivals, makes this a logical and easy next step on both The Audio Suite’s and our own personal journeys.”
