The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queen’s University Belfast has opened an immersive sound facility featuring an Avid S6 M10 with MTRX, Dolby Atmos HE-RMU and Genelec 8040/1032 Sub monitoring supplied by HHB Communications.

Sonic Arts Research Centre immersive sound facility At the centre of the set-up, the Avid Pro Tools S6 control surface is paired with Pro Tools HD 12.8 offering comprehensive Dolby Atmos intergration – as some students work with other DAWs, control of any EuCon enabled DAW made the S6 an obvious choice.

The studios serve a wide variety of applications, including the recording of pop and classical music, electronic music production, sound design, mixing for radio and TV broadcast and postproduction for picture.

Alongside the immersive sound studio is the Sonic Lab, a multi-function concert hall/research laboratory allowing playback of 3D and binaural audio through 48 high-quality loudspeakers. The addition of the Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite with Dolby HE-RMU extends the functionality of the lab to provide a second place for students to render mixes in Dolby Atmos. It will also be possible to present Dolby Atmos content to an audience of up to 150 people. HHB’s Educational Sales Manager, Andrew Hingley advised and worked with Craig Jackson, Technical Manager at the Sonic Arts Research Centre to update their facility.

‘We have made numerous equipment purchases from HHB in the past and we have always been very impressed with the technical advice and support provided,’ Jackson says. ‘HHB has also been very good at arranging demos of equipment prior to purchase which has been extremely helpful in making informed purchase decisions.’

As this was a very specific design the team at HHB coordinated the delivery and build to guarantee the facility was operational by the desired deadline. ‘The installation process was excellent with knowledgeable staff customising the install to specifically meet our exact requirements,’ he adds.
