MIX MAGAZINE – January 2012
Santisound: A Small Studio Capitalizing on a Major Trend
Well, here we are, another year wrapped up. Operating a studio, or any business for that matter, can be a roller coaster ride. Thankfully, here at Santisound, 2011 will be considered a success. There’s a lot to be grateful for; great clients and great friends, all contributing to our success. Our team has grown stronger, and we’re looking forward to the new year.
Speaking of the new year… 2012 looks to start off in grand fashion.
We are honored to be featured in our industries leading publication, Mix Magazine, thanks to Lisa Horan and Kevin Hill from PopMark Media. Lisa wrote a piece on us in her monthly contributions to Mix, Confessions of a Small Working Studio. It focuses on our work with Blu-ray/DVD Bonus Material, Commentaries, EPK’s, and Broadcast work. Here is an excerpt:
And when Santizo says big titles, he’s not kidding. Some of the most recent films that have made their way through Santisound include Avatar, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Three Musketeers, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Star Wars 3-D: Episode 1. For these films, the studio’s work included mixing and editing bonus material that focused on everything from how the actors trained to how the environment was created to how the film was composed, to commentary on how the films were put together. -MIX
There is a promo in the print version of the magazine, while the full article is online. It’s a big deal for Santisound, and we hope the attention will be a boon for us and our clients. Again, we can’t thank Lisa, Kevin, and PopMark Media enough for this.

In January, we’ll continue our trend of recording from all over the world using Source Connect. We have several sessions coming up where we will be recording from Australia, Seattle, Arizona, and Maine. This new year will also bring equipment upgrades and some acoustic construction updates to our main mix room. We also have a new website which will be updated more often, including more audio and video.
We’ll keep the updates coming as often as possible. In the meantime, we wish you all the best in 2012. And if we can help in anyway, let us know.
