TT3 - Outpost Studios

Outpost Studios ( is San Francisco’s largest lock-to-picture Dolby 5.1 control room/mix stage featuring a Euphonix console with Protools HD|3, and a large Foley stage. Included in this tour, Supervising Sound Engineer Dave Nelson will use examples of effects, music and dialog for a live in-studio demonstration on how he breaks these elements into stems for a film soundtrack, and to create sound design and music. Dave pioneered the act of recording Foley directly into ProTools which has since become the industry standard.

They have an extensive Foley warehouse, which includes props of artist Marnie Moore and the Saul Zaentz film center. Outpost handles all aspects of audio for post-production, from shorts and indies to award winning feature films, including Foley recording for Sophia Coppala’s Lost in Translation.

Price: $35 Members / $45 Nonmembers
