Alchemy Post Sound
Debuts Second Foley Stage
lchemy Post Sound,
a specialist in Foley
sound for motion pictures
and television, has added
a second Foley stage to its
facility in New York.
The new space is
designed to complement
the company's original
Foley stage with a "live"
meant to enhance the
production of interior
effects that can benefit
from natural ambiance.
The new stage will enable Alchemy to
boost production, allowing two Foley
teams to work simultaneously.
"We needed to expand and to have
more flexibility with the sounds that

DAD Take Berliner Synchron Digital
erliner Synchron, which specialises
in dubbing and synchronising in
German, recently made a complete
move to a brand new facility.
In the spring of 2017, Berliner
Synchron took the plunge and moved
over an extended weekend.
Michael Gerbes, said: "We shut down
production on a Friday and started
packing down everything that had
to come along to the new location.
Then 72 men came with a crane and
moved everything over the weekend
and during the following Monday,
we connected and tested everything.
Tuesday we were up and running
again, having only lost two days
of production time. On top of that,
we also decided to invest in a lot of
new equipment, making the definite
transition from analogue to all-digital
during the process, which included
AX32 and DX32 AD and DA converters
from Digital Audio Denmark.
"The AX32 units for the ADR stages
were highly recommended to us
due to the high quality of the AD/DA
converters, and now that I have heard
them in action, I can only agree that
they sound very good indeed.
"Also, and most importantly, the
DAD boxes caused no technical hiccups
along the way."
