As part of our ongoing commitment to cutting-edge excellence, SNK Studios suites 1, 2 and 5 have just been given full technical upgrades.
We're proud to now be running three brand new Avid ProTools HDX systems, driven by the most powerful Mac Pros on the market. These systems make sure all SNK Studios’ clients benefit from the best technical experience money can buy - bar none. Precise, powerful and beautiful... and that's just the engineers.
In addition to the core systems, we’ve installed one of Europe’s first Focusrite 16Line IO systems - in fact, we’ve installed three of them - to ensure the cleanest, clearest audio fidelity possible. We've also upgraded Studio 5 to enable full 5.1 mixing, which means we now have three 5.1 broadcast mix suites.
These latest upgrades bring all suites into line with Studio 7, our Dolby-Certified room, which was installed in 2017. That means any session can move around the facility absolutely seamlessly - crucial for booking flexibility, and designed to deliver those last minute requests our clients trust us with.
To celebrate this next evolution, we thought we’d create a lovely little logo animation to top and tail our showreel! Please have a watch and a listen on our homepage here http://www.snkstudios.co.uk/ You really do need to hear it in full, 360-degree Dolby Atmos though! Drop us a line and we can arrange a proper demo, a tour and a coffee.

"Spring having sprung, here is a playlist of vaguely relaxing guitar-y type music I use as the soundtrack to tidying the flat. Might serve as good background music for a rainy Sunday spring clean-a-thon!"

SNK Studios are delighted to announce the arrival of two new expert Sound Engineers, bringing the in-house engineering team up to nine.
Chris Bristow and Gabriel Dutru are already showing what they can do, primarily focusing on the huge quantity of foreign dubbing work the studios handle. This is just part of our ongoing commitment to delivering high quality, multi-language mixes for leading content providers, including dozens of top-tier documentaries, drama series and feature films.
Gabriel studied in Paris and recently moved to the UK to further develop his Audio Post experience. He joins us having worked as a runner at several other Soho-based facilities. Chris is an Aussie (but we don't hold that against him). He studied in Sydney, toured internationally as a session guitarist, spent time at Fox in LA and now joins SNK having finally decided that London is clearly the best city in the world.

Nice for SNK Studios co-founder Seb Juviler, to have been interviewed recently for the ADAM Audio website.
We worked in collaboration with the Berlin based speaker manufactorer during 2016 for the development of our Dolby Certified Studio 7. It actually makes for fairly interesting reading! Click here.

Rob Baker - Sound Engineer / Designer says:
All these songs have been important to me in different periods of my life. From Longpigs, Cay, Dandy Warhols and Idlewild etc at school, to my hip-hop scratch DJ spell (Breakestra, Rahzel, Black Moon were pretty much in every set I played!), via the Jurassic Park Theme (it would be a crime not to include it), to various festival highlights and gigs. Some of the songs are probably pretty embarrassing but there's certainly a selection in there.

‘Audio therapy’ is quickly becoming a new way by which people meditate! A recent survey found that nearly 18 million adults practice meditation each day. Sonic Enchantment was founded in 2011 by Yoga-loving guru, D-J and sound-engineer Fabio Garces, and we thought you might be interested to know a little more…
Fabio began his career as a sound engineer, music producer and graphic designer. He recently participated in the popular Morning Gloryville Raves that encourage positivity through sober raving. More recently, Fabio combined his two passions of sound and visual art which have led to the creation of Sonic Enchantment.
Sonic Enchantment events provide a multi-media immersive experience by incorporating ancient acoustic music, naturalistic sounds, ethereal chimes and visual imagery which lull attendees into a meditative state. What could be better!?
Fabio’s events run regularly around London. To reserve a space follow the link on Facebook: HERE
