Avid Pro Tools HDX was used to produce composer Ryan Amon’s score for the recently-release Sony Pictures film, Elysium. John Rodd (pictured), the film’s score recording and mixing engineer, specified Pro Tools HDX for the project, which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and mixed at his own studio, Clearstory Sound in Los Angeles. “The system lets me quickly and efficiently share, edit and mix audio, while streamlining workflows,” said Rodd. “I can use a single rig to do incredibly elaborate score mixes, and simultaneously print many stem mixes in a single pass.” W. Sean Ford, vice president of marketing and chief marketing officer, Avid, added: “John Rodd’s success with Elysium is yet another example of why it is so critical for industry professionals to rely on the industry’s most proven, trusted solutions that integrate into the most complex workflow environments. “Elysium is an audibly stunning film and includes an impressive array of technical elements, making Pro Tools HDX the ideal tool to help bring Amon’s music composition and (director Neill) Blomkamp’s vision to life.” In related news, Avid has teamed up with Rodd for a four-part online video series on pro mixing. In “Pro Mixing Without Limits: John Rodd,” Rodd discusses staying ahead in the industry, using Pro Tools HDX on Elysium, and collaborating with colleagues across the globe. The video series can be viewed on the Avid website. www.avid.com
