EXCLUSIVE: London audio for broadcast post-production facility Art4Noise has moved into new studios after being forced to move from its previous premises due to the construction of the Crossrail Link, writes Kevin Hilton.

The company is now based on the other side of Soho in Ingestre Place, with a studio complex housing seven suites. Art4Noise had to move out of its building in Fareham Street as building work on the Crossrail Link continues. It is among the few facilities in the area to receive "substantial compensation" due to the enforced relocation.

The studios were designed by Munro Acoustics and comprise: a main 5.1 mix room, a sound design suite, an ADR area and four edit suites.

The 5.1 studio is based around an Euphonix System 5 console working alongside Nuendo 5 and Pro Tools, with monitoring on customised Dynaudio loudspeakers. The sound design suite is used for track-laying, 5.1 monitoring and temporary mixes and features a WK id controller.

The edit rooms all run on Nuendo 5, with one room doubling as an Avid online/offline video suite. Each facility is able to work with the company-wide server over a local Ethernet connection.

Andy Munro, managing director of Munro Acoustics, comments, "This type of installation can seriously affect the business of a client so to make a success of it gives us a great deal of satisfaction."

Art4Noise won a BAFTA and an RTS Award for its work on the documentary 911 - Inside The Twin Towers, while its contribution to Discovery's When We Left Earth series received an Emmy nomination.
