Seen a movie lately at AMC? If so, you may have seen some
great animation work by Intake Studios and some killer 5.1 surround sound design for
their new NATIONWIDE no talking, no texting pre-movie commercial!
Pro-Tools 10 is here! It arrived in KC around Labor Day at Wheeler Audio.
We have upgraded both of our suites to the latest and best Pro-Tools ever. Jim and our engineers are like
kids in a toy store!
Come see them in action geeking out
over 780 tracks, new plug-ins and did we mention 10 is faster and not as picky with video imports? No more converting! In English it means "saves you and your client money and time"!
TV stations, Cable and Dish will begin enforcing the
FCC's CALM Act on Dec. 13th. This is their answer to annoying loud commercials
(not yours of course). We understand that stations will refuse to air
commercials that are not compliant with the new standard. Everyone knows air time is expensive and the last thing
you need is all the hard work everyone has put into a spot or a campaign to
be kicked out of the system. Can you imagine the calls from the client? The
good news is your audio is safe with us! We are ready for the CALM Act to
take effect on Dec. 13th and will supply the correct level to all commercials
produced at Wheeler Audio.
We want to congratulate Matt Wiewel for landing the North
and South America commercial voice work for the LEAF! Not only is it an amazing all electric car, we get to
work with SongZu out of Australia whenever they need him for a new commercial!
I always knew as a child when my mother was getting into
the Christmas spirit. Mannheim Steamroller would start playing around
the house in whatever room she was working in. Never did I think that one day I would be working for one
of the engineers that mixed a handful of their Fresh Aire albums. If you
get a wild hair, check out some of Jim's pictures on his bio page or if you get an even wilder hair ask him about the days at Sound Recorders in
Omaha, NE. Whether you are a fan or your client is a fan or maybe
you just have some nostalgic child memories like me, you can now license
around 48 tracks of Mannheim Steamroller through one of our music libraries
It always occurs to me to wonder when these guys come to town for their Big Slick Celebrity Weekend whether they might need to do any audio work while they're here. Well, finally, this time Jason Sudeikis stopped by!
The hosting comedic trio of Big Slick (Paul Rudd, Rob Riggle and Jason Sudeikis) have now all made it over to Wheeler at one time or another! It is always great to see Kansas City natives come back to town and support such a great cause. Children’s Mercy Hospital’s new cancer center received the financial proceeds from this event. (Give it up to Propaganda 3 too for their awesome webiste design!)
Deana had the opportunity to offer up some great music for this beautifully shot behind-the-scenes video for the local fashion retailer Peruvian Connection. This was a particularly fun search for her as she has a certain "peruvian connection" of her own. During her sophomore year at the Kansas City Art Institute, she received her first monetary award for a work of art from the good people at PC, who were judging a show of students' work.
