Blackmagic - DaVinci Resolve - Fairlight - Immersive MMG

Fairlight audio post-production tools integrated into DaVinci Resolve (Blackmagic Design) have enabled Immersive MMG (Immersive Music/Media Group) to mix and master content for their clients.

Immersive MMG has been using Fairlight, accompanied by a five-module Fairlight Advanced Console device, since 2020. This system, which is an integral part of DaVinci Resolve, has brought new opportunities to the production company’s team, as creative director Ken Mertz explains: “Grammy nominated producer Matthew Shell, who was interested in creating Dolby Atmos versions of several of his own projects. (…) He sent us his stems ahead of time, and from there, we loaded them into Fairlight and set up Atmos mixes inhouse. He came to our studio and was able to make the final adjustments to five songs and return home with the rendered files the same day, all thanks to the smooth workflow within Fairlight.”

Creating these Atmos-based workflows with the Blackmagic tool is very simple, as Chris Keeney, one of Immersive MMG’s engineers, explains: “We can mix with native Atmos integration and patch ins and outs to and from additional inhouse hardware, computers and speaker setups, all from within Fairlight’s Patch Input/Output menu. The ability to swap the order of effects, dynamics, and EQ in the Fairlight mixer allows extra control when needed for a greater variety of workflows.”

Blackmagic Design in the Immersive MMG Studio

Beyond the audio services offered by Immersive MMG with DaVinci Resolve and Fairlight, the company has an audio-visual content studio equipped with a 2.5 x 3 x 2.5-meter green backdrop, two Pocket Cinema Camera 6K units and a Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro. These elements, together with the DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel in its post-production room, allow the production company to explore a purely visual aspect that is highly valued by its clients.

Mertz elaborates: “Acoustic guitar instrumentalist Bob Coyne approached us to record a composition of his in our audio room. When he saw our video capabilities, he was immediately interested in creating an accompanying performance video for the song. We filmed him with the Pocket cameras and then edited and graded the footage in Resolve, along with Bob’s own personal footage that he brought with him.”

Immersive MMG has also taken advantage of the capabilities of the Pocket Cinema Camera units when shooting portrait content for social media use. Because the screen automatically rotates with the camera when employing vertical aspect ratios, the equipment can easily capture cinematic content for artists’ social networks.

“Blackmagic Design technology has allowed us to become a hybrid audio and video studio, enabling us to create this podcast series and explore a wide range of topics related to the industry. By utilizing Blackmagic Design hardware and DaVinci Resolve Studio software, lmmersive MMG has been able to expand our creative horizons and become a valuable resource for artists and other industry professionals,” concludes Mertz.
