Services & Technology
With a combination of Creativity and Skills, the Advantage Team will help you reach and ultimately achieve all of your sonic goals


Advantage’s four mixing stages are equipped with Digidesign D-Command consoles offering Dolby Atmos Home Cinema, 7.1, 5.1 or Stereo Mixes. This environment is ideal for multi-channel audio and utilizing ProTools|HD systems for playback of dialog, sound effects, music and foley. It also allows for real-time editorial changes to any sound element during the mix. Everything is random access, enabling the mixing process to move at a focused rhythm. Our digital sound path ensures that all of your audio remains ‘first generation’ throughout the process. This impressive collection of equipment combined with the expertise and the technical horsepower of our award-winning re-recording mixers makes mixing at Advantage a uniquely rewarding experience.

Sound Design

At Advantage, sounds are created and designed specifically for each project. From cute and cuddly, huge and menacing and Everything in between, our effects editors create richly layered elements for every production style. Even sounds pulled from our extensive library are modified for every use to ensure you get a unique sound experience. Each sound is individually processed to achieve the best equalization and placement for the situation.  Through the extensive use of specialized technology, our team builds customized sounds to meet the exact needs of your picture. This attention to detail during the design/editorial process results in better sounding final mixes that take less time.


To achieve a more dynamic, accurate and organic performance, we routinely create sounds in foley that other facilities would cut from libraries. Live recording of all footsteps and prop movements is provided on our foley stage and recorded directly to ProTools through a super-clean analog front end, and positioned to tight-sync for every cue.


Upon receipt of your work-print, we retrieve the original digital dialog files (either from our archives or another facility, depending on where the pre-production was done). We then tight-sync all lines to match your picture and insert additional lines or ADR where required. Advantage also maintains libraries of useful character readings from each series in order to enhance scenes that need unscripted dialog or reactions. All transfers are digital, and all editorial is performed in ProTools.


Often overlooked, but of vital importance to the integrity of the finished product, is the transfer department. Advantage employs the highest quality systems for maintaining the full dynamic range of your finished soundtrack. We offer a wide array of options to accommodate your Video Masters and the latest security encryption and processing technologies to insure the safe use of your work print and loudness and level standards compliance.
