Euphonix announced the sale of a 32-fader System 5-MC integrated digital audio workstation controller to Studio Mitte in Berlin, Germany. The purchase through German distributor Peter Wolff Enterprises Elektroakustik was part of a major upgrade and relocation for the Berlin-based film and television post-production studio.
"The Euphonix setup was so smooth that our first project using the System 5-MC, Julie Delpy's film Two Days in Paris, was edited and mixed while the system was being installed," says Jörg Höhne, Studio Mitte's founder, CEO and re-recording mixer. "With the 5-MC and the advantages afforded by EuCon, we found the perfect, most professional hardware to work with our favorite software."
Two Days in Paris and Studio Mitte's second project on the System 5-MC, Heimatklänge from Swiss director Stephan Schwiedter, premiered in February at Berlinale, the 57th Berlin International Film Festival. The most recent production on the System 5-MC was the mix for the German documentary Prinzessinnenbad, produced by Wim Wenders' Reverse Angle Factory. Future projects include ongoing sound design and sound post-production for five TV series from Berlin-based animation studio BAF, best known in the U.S. for the satirical animated feature film Happily N'ever After.
"Though the System 5-MC is relatively new, it works astonishing well and is remarkably stable," says Sebastian Morsch, Studio Mitte's supervising sound designer. "I respect a company that strives to strengthen their products with regular updates rather than simply pile on features."
