Brief Provide audio post and create Shetland’s spectacular sonic landscape for its second series.
How it was done The Glasgow-based sound facility recorded the settings and environments synonymous with the isolated region using a Sound Devices 744T recorder and Sennheiser MKH60 mic.
Series dubbing mixer and managing director Kahl Henderson, and sound editors Leslie Liu and Paul McArthur, used MKH418 mics for the recording of beaches, harbours, cliff tops, towns and wildlife.
A Schoeps CMC 641 mic was employed to capture local dialect, which was used as the basis for the show’s soundtrack, along with the original production audio, the Foley and John Lunn’s score.
The series was mixed in 5.1 using the Pro Tools 10 HDX system and delivered to the R-128 loudness standard.
