TT6 - Yellow Cab Studios

Abstract:
YELLOW CAB Studios was created in 1998 by Eric Lesachet and Steven Ghouti as a post production company specializing in sound-for-picture. Starting out as a one studio facility, we now have 3 mixing studios and what is probably the largest Foley and ADR recording studio in France. The latter is a recent addition to the company and required that we open a new location in Aubervilliers, in the Northern Paris suburbs.

Studio D—as it is known—is purpose built for foley sessions for both film and television projects. We intended to give it a blend between tried and trusted audio technology and newer takes on the French way of recording Foley and ADR (in France, the recording engineer, or sound mixer, is in the same room as the talent instead of a in a separate control room). A Foley studio is never really finished and can always be seen as work in progress as we try to improve the studio from user comments. (Foley artists sometimes have quirky ideas, but some actually work!)

The studio build took place in 2013, starting in July and ended just in time for the first Foley session in December. The room has variable acoustics, with a dual-zone revolving ceiling (reflective/absorbent) and four independent sets of motorized drapes.We run both Pro Tools and Nuendo, to cater for most
requests from Foley Mixers, as well as to conform to our own
in-house workflow that is heavily based on Steinberg's Nuendo.

We are pleased to welcome the AES to our facility for this technical tour.

Technical Tours are made available on a first come, first served basis to anyone with an All Access badge. Tickets can be purchased during normal registration hours at the convention center.
