Vibe Productions Studios Steps Up With SSL C300 HD Console

With a quickly expanding business covering everything from multi-lingual voiceovers to audio post, Vibe Productions Studios has installed a 24-fader, 64 dsp channel Solid State Logic C300 HD Master Studio System Console in its busy Studio A.
The C300, supplied by Joystick Audio, SSL's Benelux distributor, offers Vibe the opportunity to elegantly service its current production schedule while providing the power and expandability to venture into larger format projects in the future.
Tim Van Renterghem, Owner of Vibe Productions Studios, said: "We have been very fortunate to have built a very successful business providing voiceovers in multiple languages for major companies like Kellogg's, 3M, Colgate, Baileys and Western Union. From this, we have expanded into ADR and voiceover work for TV and some film. To meet this demand, we made the decision to install the C300 Master Studio System. While we looked at the offerings from other manufacturers, including an ICON controller for our Pro Tools system and other digital consoles, the C300 was much more flexible in design to handle our multiple audio missions and it is expandable. The C300 will help us to move forward into many different markets."
Vibe Productions started out as a voiceover studio but quickly grew into a full turnkey production management company for many international companies. Services range from mixing commercials for television and radio to sound design, casting and voiceover recording. Each discipline requires a different configuration for both the engineers and the type of project being worked on. The C300 surface controls are completely programmable to fit any type of job or working style, so it became the perfect choice to take Vibe into the future.
Van Renterghem stated: "Because of the requests of our customers wanting us to mix for larger productions, we had to invest in a mixing desk that was flexible enough to meet the varying channel counts, while delivering great sounding tracks and high-end recognition. These factors help to differentiate us in the market. But beyond this, the console also needed to be capable of bringing us into mixing for film and short film projects to expand our business. We have come a long way in the short time the studio has been open. We are becoming the go-to studio in Europe for American and English clients looking to internationalise commercials and other productions. These clients are interested in great sound and quick turnaround while staying within a set budget. The C300, with its in-console control of our resident Pro Tools system, gives us both. The SSL name and industry reputation is a real attraction for our international client base."
For the future, Vibe Productions Studios will expand on current services, as well as growing into a full sound for film posting studios, offering Foley, sound design, ADR and music mixing. The intention is also to move into sound for games, using the film disciplines as a spring board. Again, the C300, with its inherent design flexibility, will be a key for this direction.
Van Renterghem continued: "If we had stayed with simple voiceover work, we would have continued with our collection of high-end mic pres. The reason I purchased the C300 was for all the areas I am going into for the future. Anything less than a C300 simple would not do."
