Audio is no longer an afterthought in post production! Sound elevates the emotional impact of the picture with stirring scores, clear dialog and incredible effects that make us feel like we’re part of the story. Now, for the first time ever, professional audio post production is fully integrated into a single application that gives sound editors, colorists, and video editors everything they need to seamlessly collaborate and create films and television shows that will be remembered for generations to come!
DaVinci Resolve 14 features a whole new Fairlight audio page with a massive set of recording, editing, mixing, sweetening, finishing and mastering tools. It’s all driven by a state of the art super low latency audio engine designed to handle up to 1,000 tracks of 24‑bit audio with ease!
Each track corresponds to a channel strip on the mixer. You get real time 6 band parametric EQ, along with expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics on every single track. In addition, clip time warping lets you stretch or compress audio without shifting pitch. It works at the subframe level for absolutely perfect synchronization! The powerful busing structure has several main, sub, and aux buses so you can prepare multiple deliverable formats all at the same time!
Comprehensive clip-aware automation includes touch, trim, slow-mo, preview and fill modes. In addition to automating traditional parameters such as pan, level and EQ, Fairlight audio lets you record changes in every single parameter during live playback! You can even automate changes in VST plug in parameters over time!
When it comes to recording, DaVinci Resolve’s Fairlight audio lets you produce multi layered recordings quickly and easily. Real time punch in lets you record at any moment during live playback and you get a complete set of sophisticated ADR tools for replacing dialog.
For the absolute best performance, add a Fairlight Audio Accelerator to your system! You’ll get blazing performance with amazing sub‑millisecond latency, up to 1,000 tracks, and with full real time processing of EQ, expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics, and up to 6 real time VST plug‑ins per channel!
The advanced Fairlight monitoring system handles buses up to 24 channels wide. Sources can be selected from internal buses or external inputs and sent out to 16 different sets of speakers! You also get customizable fold-up and fold-down when crossing between formats. For example, if you’re monitoring 5.1 on a pair of stereo speakers, it automatically folds down for output to 2 channels. For cinematic setups, you can add an optional B-Chain processor for installations with up to 64 speakers!
Fairlight audio features built in 3D audio support for working with spatial formats such as 5.1, 7.1, DTS multi dimensional array, Dolby and even 22.2. You get a 3D panner to position sound in space, 3D B-chain processing and 3D Spaceview™ visualization which provides a clear view of each object’s location in space. AirPan, which is exclusive to Fairlight consoles, allows you to reach out in space to place sounds where you want. Simply move your fingers in the air to pan, rotate, move and spread sound!
Fairlight mixing consoles provide high quality tactile controls for nearly every parameter and feature in the software. Unique user interfaces and fast to use buttons and controls allow quick mapping of the console keys into a configuration that is optimized for the task at hand, allowing you to work faster with Fairlight audio than any other tool in the world! Desktop and free standing consoles are available in a variety of configurations to meet the needs of your facility.
The Fairlight audio page in DaVinci Resolve 14 provides extensive metering of all sources in your project. In addition to sources, you can also meter sub and aux bus outputs as well as view compound meters with phase and loudness.
