Something completely different: Recording and mixing the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack


We had a post on the forum that maybe we were getting a bit too FCPX centric. We agree and hopefully this will be a little break from the stream of Final Cut Pro news from the last fortnight. The Transformers: Dark of the Moon might not be Oscar material but boy do these sound guys have fun!

We thought all post production sound people sat in dark rooms in front of large mixing consoles. No, they also get out to fire big machine guns to record original audio. Jealous? maybe. This video from SoundWorks Collection shows what goes in to making a big Hollywood action soundtracks come alive.
