MIT at the Movies— Interfacing Skywalker Sound

The Stag Theater at Skywalker Ranch.

MIT interfacing has been used to mix the sound on countless major motion pictures, including Academy Award winners Terms of Endearment, Back to the Future, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

In 1998, engineers at Skywalker Sound in Marin County CA asked MIT's Bruce Brisson for assistance in the interfacing of two new mixing stage speaker systems. The goal was the most translatable and nuetral sound ever achieved in a recording environment. MIT cables were used to tie together the "B" chain of the scoring stage (see top photo). Power conditioning was accomplished using two rack-mount Z-Stabilizers.

During listening tests I was amazed at the drastic differences we uncovered when comparing MIT to other products.

...Bruce Brisson was able to point out events, in his test results, that in every case we could hear. I think that is revolutionary.
