Backstage at the Grammys
Tom Holmes, broadcast production mixer
Tom takes all of the broadcast elements (audience mics, podium mics, video playback, music playback and music mix from trucks) for a final surround mix that is sent to CBS. He’s using a Calrec Alpha board with 192 faders and “more potential inputs than anyone could possibly use.” He also uses a CEDAR Audio noise reduction system, which eliminates noise from lights, LED screens, etc. They also trying out the iZotope ANR-B Adaptive Real-Time Noise Reduction which learns the specific noise you want to get rid of and eliminates it.
