Watch "Mad Dogs" on Amazon Prime

Mad Dogs

"Mad Dogs" is now on Amazon Prime! Back in November, actor Steve Zahn was in the studios of Dynamix recording a significant amount of dialog replacement lines (ADR) for the new series.

Many television shows and movies require dialog to be re-recorded because of noisy locations, script changes, or performance tweaks. ADR involves the actor watching the scene to be fixed on a video screen while performing the new lines again. Precise synchronization, count-in cues, and microphone placement are paramount to success. During the "Mad Dogs" session, Dynamix was connected in real time over ISDN with director Adrian Shergold and Sony Pictures. Using timecode, video playback was simultaneously synchronized with Zahn's dialog in both Kentucky and California.

Mad Dogs synopsis:
When a group of underachieving 40-something friends gather in Belize to celebrate the early retirement of an old friend, a series of wild events unfold, exposing dark secrets, deception and even murder. Starring Ben Chaplin (The Thin Red Line), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), Billy Zane (Twin Peaks), Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club) and Romany Malco (Weeds). Executive produced by Cris Cole and Shawn Ryan (The Shield).

Circuit Bending - September 2014 News

"I don't appreciate avant-garde, electronic music. It makes me feel quite ill."

Ravi Shankar

When you think of electronic music, you often think of the straightforward synthesizer, electric piano, or loops and samples. But some musicians like to rewire, alter, or downright reconstruct electronic equipment to make sounds they weren’t originally intended to do. At the forefront of these experimentations was BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop, a special music lab that gave us unique sounds and music for hit TV shows such as Dr. Who.

Also in this issue, find out about some the exciting projects we’ve been working on.

A Sound Education - August 2014 News

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
Socrates


What young person really knows what they want to be when they grow up? Very few of my childhood friends are still on the path they laid out early in life. Most of us have zig-zagged through careers, including me. Unlike today, if you wanted to be an audio engineer in the 70's like I did, there were very limited educational opportunities.

3D Audio on the Right Track - July 2014 News

“Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.”

Will Rogers


3D Audio on the Right Track


It's said that when an early motion picture was first shown to the public, women fainted and men ducked from an approaching train. The director made a bold new decision that would alter the course of filmmaking for the next century. Instead of just placing the camera in front of all the action like an audience watching a stage, the director moved the camera to a new position - within the action - to create perspective. That’s been happening in filmmaking ever since. But the same has been happening in sound as well. And now with emerging technologies, virtual 3D sound is now here.

The new generation is discovering what the old generation stopped loving - LPs. LP sales are the highs they’ve been in 22 years. Records aren’t just for hipsters anymore, everyone, including the older generation that gave them up, are groovin’ to them.

The Color of Sound - May 2014 News

“Within You Without You,” The Beatles
1967

What if we could see sound? Aside from graphical representations of sound like waveforms and meters, we can't just look at an orchestra and see sounds flying out of the trombones. I wish we could watch the beautiful tones flow from Itzhak Perlman's Stradivarius.

But we can - sort of. As reported by NPR, we can see certain sounds using a technique invented in the mid-19th century.

Most of you reading this know us at Dynamix for creating new sounds with new technology. But did you know we also like to resurrect old sounds? Just twenty years ago, magnetic tapes and records were standard formats we worked with everyday. Now, they're just "antiques" and items taking up space in a closet. But many people are discovering (or re-discovering) analog, and they want it in digital form.
