Le Doyen is a state of the art Film & TV post-production facility, comprising recording, editing and mixing studios. The appearance of the studios reflects the high quality and purpose built design from leading acoustic specialists.
Not only are we very proud to have built the very first Dolby Mixing Studio in Ukraine but on the 18th January 2009 (after extensive technical tests by Dolby’s senior sound consultant) we were awarded the highest certification and classified a Dolby Premier Studio. Le Doyen becomes only the 11th studio in the world to be given this status.
The studio complex includes a Dolby Premier mixing studio, five dubbing studios and sound/video editing rooms.
Dolby Premier Mix:
The 146 m2 studio was designed by the best acoustic and interior designers of the field. Sound measurements, such as noise and reflections, taken by the Dolby expert proved that this studio meets the highest international standards. Having a volume of 1206 m3 and a height of 9m, the studio also acts as a cinema, with comfortable seating to facilitate private screenings.
The studio features an 80 fader DigiDesign Icon mixing console, interfacing the film industry standard, Pro Tools Digital workstation. In accordance with the certification requirements, engineers working on Dolby mixes must be highly skilled specialists and the Le Doyen sound engineers have had a longstanding collaboration with both home partners and the world’s leading film companies.
In addition to the Dolby Digital mixing studio, Le Doyen currently has two large purpose built dubbing studios, also designed and constructed to the highest acoustic standards. These vesitile studios, with their separate control monitoring rooms, can be used to record post-sync dialogue for domestic and foreign films, television and radio shows, plus sound design and music recording. They are large enough to accommodate groups of actors, necessary to record crowd scenes or “walla”.
The Le Doyen dubbing studios started recording in the spring of 2008 and in the first 10 months, have dubbed over 20 feature films for the world’s leading film companies, such as Universal Pictures, Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks and Disney.
