Meyer Sound Helps Semillero Estudios Create a Cutting-Edge Dolby Atom Sound Mixing Room

Author:


At the end of last year, the city of Guadalajara (Guadalajara) in Mexico Semillero Estudios the new Sound Arts mixing room opened, becoming the first post-production organization in Jalisco (Jalisco) to provide Dolby Atmos Home Entertainment immersion sound certification. In addition, the mixing room is also the first mixing room outside Mexico City to provide Atmos HE functions using the full 9.1.6 Meyer Sound spatial audio monitoring system.

Álvaro Arce, founder and director of Semillero Estudios, said: "Our mixing room in Guadalajara impressed both producers and musicians, largely because of Meyer Sound's monitoring system, which does not distort even at high sound pressure levels. It sounds great and brings the sound back to the monitor headphones, listening to most of the spatial audio music tracks, you can quickly complete the mix and completely rely on this system.

In 2013, Arce created a Semillero Estudios in Mexico City, mostly for music recording, but the growing number of musicians in his hometown of Guadalajara and the rapid growth of his film and video business led him to move it back home in 2019. The first studio at the new site also focused on music recording, but when the music required a synthetic surround sound effect, the mixing had to be done in Mexico City.

Arce recalls: "At first we only considered building a small room with Dolby 5.1 system functions, and then later expanded into a Dolby Atmos space. But our architect Gabriel Beas, acoustic designer Alejandro Lepe, and Carlos Cuevas of Dolby convinced us that it would be more cost-effective to build a larger Dolby panoramic sound space at once, and I'm glad we did. Thanks to Apple, the surge in demand for immersive music mixing has brought us a lot of business."

The Sound Arts mixing room is equipped with 3 Meyer Sound Acheron Designer screen channel speakers, 6 HMS-5 surround sound speakers (for wide coverage, surround sound and and rear area coverage respectively) on the side, and the other 6 are distributed in the front, middle and rear positions of the top, plus 1 X-800C cinema ultra-low frequency speaker to provide strong bass effect.

Arce said: "I have always liked Meyer Sound speakers because of their amazing dynamic margin and accurate sound image. I remember when we used the Dolby tool to measure the sound pressure level to make sure that we got the sound pressure level we needed in the infrasound frequency range, and that's when I realized the huge advantage of Meyer Sound speakers, because if we were using other systems that we had considered, we would need two or even four ultra-low frequency speakers to meet the demand, and now we have achieved our goal with only one.

Arce also mentioned that the Meyer Sound listening system has been favored by major film and television post-production studios around the world, as well as its high level of customer support in Mexico. He said, "The head of sales in Mexico, Antonio Manzo, and my friends of many years, Magu and Oscar Barrientos, have given me a lot of help in system design and speaker selection. The team at Meyer Sound has given us unparalleled support throughout, setting a new benchmark for the industry."

The new mixing room opened during the Guadalajara Film Festival in October 2021, during which Carlos Cortés, sound designer for the Oscar-winning film "The Sound of Metal" and Jamie Baksht, a re-recording sound mixer, came to the studio to offer a master course.

Since opening, the mixing room has been busy with film projects, programming and mixing of immersive music, with Arce and lead mixer Caleb Sevilla doing most of the mixing. The studio soon caught the attention of several Latin music celebrities, including guitarist, composer and music producer Kiko Cibrian, who became famous for his collaborations with Luis Miguel and Christian Castro, among others. Arce said, "Even though Kiko lives in San Diego, he loves the sound of our mixing room."

Most Dolby Atmos remixes are used for music production, which is also due to the demand for immersive products on the Apple Music platform. The Sound Arts mixing room has also mixed many feature films and documentaries, but most of them are presented in Dolby 5.1 format. One of the representative projects is the IWC IWC commercial short film tuned by Oscar winner Carlos Cortés and starring American football legend Tom Brady.

Semillero Estudios and its staff have won acclaim for original music, music production, sound design and post-mixing, with completed projects including feature films, TV series and immersive music. Most of the projects will be released in Mexico when they are completed, but about 1/3 of the projects have been distributed throughout Latin America, and some of the works have also landed in Spanish-language media in the United States.
