CBC/Radio-Canada Montreal Aaudio Post Produciton Adds Sonnox Restore

jean-diamant-cbc-radio-canada.jpgMONTREAL: CBC/RADIO-CANADA Audio Postproduction has selected the Sonnox Restore suites for use on the full range of its multifaceted programming.

Jean Diamant, CBC Supervising Technician – TV Technical Production, reports, “We added Sonnox Restore Suites to the CBC/Radio-Canada Montreal audio postproduction software inventory because they have an intuitive interface, a wide range of parameters and the ability to process quickly as AudioSuite plug-ins. They also complement our other restoration products.”

Since much of CBC/Radio-Canada’s programming originates in location recording environments, it is often accompanied by extraneous noise from many sources including: air and ground traffic, indigenous wildlife and weather. It is critical that these recordings be as clear as possible both for interpreters translating the original material, and for enhanced listener comprehension. CBC/Radio-Canada also maintains an extensive library of pre-recorded and historical material, which requires repair for improved clarity. more…

md421.JPGPointe Claire, Quebec, Canada, May 2010: This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the introduction of the classic Sennheiser MD 421-U large diaphragm, cardioid, dynamic microphone. The venerable MD 421, which is still in production as the MD 421 II, has been one of Sennheiser’s best-selling dynamic microphones for decades thanks to its durability, versatility, and ability to handle high sound pressure levels. Offering exemplary performance on voices, but equally effective on a wide range of acoustic and amplified instruments, the MD 421 continues to be an essential component of any microphone collection in the studio or on the road.

The MD 421 has been improved over the years with upgrades to the housing, output connector, basket, and capsule assembly. A limited-production MD 421 Special Edition that recaptured the full-bodied performance of the microphone’s original design was introduced in 2003 to commemorate the 90th birthday of Sennheiser founder, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Fritz Sennheiser. The MD 421 II continues the tradition of the MD 421 while upgrading the original design in order to take advantage of improved production techniques and materials. more…
