Restoring Historic Recordings With Trinnov – United Music Foundation

Hadzis_Mainpage_160524United Music Foundation in Geneva has a mission to preserve and remaster historical recordings. From Sarah Vaughan to Jimi Hendrix, UMF preserves our musical heritage in a specialized studio run by David Hadzis. Old recordings can have very strange frequency and phase issues due to tape generations, tape head adjustments, etc. so a 100% truthful monitoring is absolutely critical. This is where Trinnov comes into picture.

In David’s own words: “A friend who works in a Paris studio told me about the Trinnov ST-2. And since I was seeing my studio’s acoustician, we decided to test it together. We took a sound field sample with the special 3D microphone and started going… I couldn’t believe my ears! And my acoustician put a smile on his face. He had seen plenty of so-called “studio acoustics correction systems” but nothing like this.”

Great Evening At Magnetix

Magnetix_Happening_150503Thx for everybody who came to the Pro Tools Cloud Collaboration and S6 even at Magnetix in Zürich. The evening was longer than anticipated but great infos from Eric Horstmann of Avid and Jacques Kieffer from Magnetix made it feel way shorter than it actually was. Eric hooked up with a friend in Paris and collaborated on a pro Tools 12.5 project live over the net and Jacques gave great insights to film mixing with S6, using the award winning film Above And Below as an example.

We hope we could answer your questions in the many interesting discussions during the evening and are looking forward to meet you guys at the free S6 training day that was pre-announced at the Magnetix event. Details will follow soon, stay tuned.

But What Does Trinnov Actually Do?

Trinnov_4.16We get that question a lot but rather than write a novel about all its features, we let Trinnov’s UK distributor Paul Mortimer do the hard work. In the 3-part video series it gets clear why Trinnov is the only room correction system that actually works, fixing not only EQ but timing, phase, positioning, direct vs. room signal balance, etc.

Part 1 introduces the basics, Part 2 digs a bit deeper, and Part 3 is about the results after optimizing the 5.1 mixing room. It’s fun to see the enthusiasm on the last video after the guys heard the results for the first time. We’re used to see jaws dropping so we were not really surprised though… The afterward no-nosense discussion brings to light many things people say after upgrading their studio to Trinnov; It’s radically easier and faster to track and mix and the results translate extremely well to any listening environment.

Obviously the final judge must be your ears so book a demo now and hear Trinnov in your own room. Contact us for an appointment.
