Mixing

Since 1993, Studio MAIA primarily worked on mixing documentaries, but from 2001, under the leadership of Christophe Henrotte, MAIA has greatly diversified with the RMD 5.1, as well as animation and film.

In 2007, MAIA decided to open a film auditorium. This studio strengthens the sound in 5.1 and was one of the first to initiate this kind of work for the DVD market in France.

For its new studio, which meets Dolby and DTS standards, MAIA invested in a Icon D-Control 32 faders mixboard, with cinema and TV listening capabilities, as well as big screen projection and video projection.

The studio can host TV films, feature films, animation series in which the chain of sound can be fully supported, while offering various services in dubbing and sound effects.

In addition, the studio has two mixing studios TV, Studios A and B in the Boulogne studio's.

Another mixing studio for TV is available in Paris, 192 bis rue de la roquette: STUDIO MAIA 11th.

The mixdown at Studio MAIA was conceived as the ultimate step in the work done to the soundtrack, in succession to the sound editing and sound design. It is the last step in the same vision for the track, the two sides of the same coin if you will, and thus, in view of the construction of the soundmix for a film, these two successive operations on the soundtrack can not be developed separately. Hence, the importance that MAIA places on keeping the collaboration within its team as being a crucial part in bridging the two phases of work.

The mix gains in subtlety, consistency, creativity, and relevance, if the sound editing and the sound design were designed prior to the final mix.
