Dolby Atmos comes to SNK

Work has now started on a brand new, 500 square foot reception space, new production offices and, the icing on the cake, our flagship audio suite, Studio 7. A cutting edge Dolby Atmos Studio with full 5.1 & 7.1 Commercials and Trailers Certification.

We've been working closely with the wonderful designers and acousticians team at Miloco Builds in conjunction with the clever people at Dolby to create a space capable of handling all the latest developments in the cinema and VR audio worlds. With a massive 360° speaker array from Berlin based manufacturer ADAM Audio, Studio 7 will be one of only a handful of studios in Central London with Dolby Atmos capabilities. In addition, the open layout will make the suite ideal for ADR recording and dubbing of long-form work.

Studio 7 will perfectly complement our current offering, allowing for greater flexibility, enhanced technical capability and superb client experience throughout the facility.

Why stop there?!

To handle the increase in audio capacity, we're also creating a beautiful new reception area on the first floor with custom furnature from AKA Design. This will provide a large, bright space for clients to prep, meet or just hang out after sessions.

We're also completely refurbishing the communal parts and upgrading some of the existing studios… not to mention installing new network, backup and security systems, and fitting out a brand new Production Office to house the 20 odd bookings and specialist audio gurus who make the real magic happen!

Don't worry though, SNK Studios will be remaining fully operational throughout the next few months, so it's very much business as usual. We'll be opening the new look facility in December 2016 with drink invites going out well into the New Year, so watch this space!

SNK Studios has worked with Audible.co.uk to record and produce Talking Statues, the latest project from arts producers Sing London

Launching on Tuesday 19 August, passersby will be able to swipe their smartphones over signage on chosen statues across London and Manchester before receiving a call from the likes of Isaac Newton, Queen Victoria, or Sherlock Holmes. The actors, presenters, and comedians contributing include Jeremy Paxman, Prunella Scales, Hugh Bonneville, Alan Johnson MP, and Patrick Stuart.

Coordinating the studio time over the past couple of months was SNK Studios manager Sam Dillon: “It's been a big project from a logistics perspective, we've worked closely with our long-term client Audible.co.uk who were producing the voices to accommodate so many busy schedules! But everyone involved has been genuinely excited to be part of it, putting real heart into their character, resulting in some truly moving performances. It's such an original idea that will enrich these two great cities immeasurably, bringing to life these stunning statues often ignored by the public – everyone should get out and go find a statue!”

The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV UK TV and Cinema commercial took over a months’ work and a huge team effort from SNK.

The audio blurs the lines between music and sound design, combining carefully crafted synthesised textures with layers of sound effects to help tell the story of this new ground breaking car.

The sound has become a fundamental part of the commercial, with even the voice over being given an original sonic twist.

Take a look at the commercial to see for yourself how audio has helped animate the creative theme.
