UK-based independent entertainment production company back2back has announced the opening a brand new audio facility.

back2back 21Feb2019The new back2back Audio will occupy all three floors of an 18th century former fisherman’s hut just off the historic seafront of Brighton in the UK. It features the latest Pro tools HD, high spec iMac with plugins from Waves, NUGEN and Avid, mics from Neumann. 5.1 ready with a 24 channel C|24 control surface. Brighton based Altered Images supplied the software and hardware with project consultant Tony Gill acting as project manager and overseeing the installation of the equipment and various systems integration.

Even though back2back Audio is being primarily used to service back2back Production’s output, complementing its in-house facilities of nine off-line and two-online suites, back2back Audio will also offer serviced audio facilities for local indies and London-based producers looking to expand into the regions.

Taking charge of the new purpose-designed audio facility is dubbing mixer and sound designer Wayne Urquhart who prior to his tenure at back2back was head of audio for six years at A+E Networks in London. With over fifteen years in the audio business, award winning Urquhart is a well-known and respected figure in the industry. After taking his role with back2back in 2018, he has mixed and dubbed Help! My House is Haunted, Scrap Kings 2 and Mega Shippers 2 amongst other back2back shows.

“It’s been such a great learning curve and eye opener to apply my skills and expertise first from a major broadcaster and now a producer perspective,” he remarked. “Additionally, this opportunity has allowed me to be involved in the build of a studio from scratch and be very much part of the creative process, career wise, this really completes the circle.”
