Key Code Media is Audio

Key Code Media has multiple post-production audio and music engineers with extensive experience in all things sonic.  This includes not just building and installing your audio rig but also using that same technology as recording engineers, sound editors, and re-recording mixers.  These individuals get sound and how the technology decisions you make can enable your next project.

Our in-house talent also knows how to master your mix, utilizing deep, real-world experience on both the user and the engineering level.  We’re with you before, during, and after your purchase, keeping you in the groove.

Key Code Media’s engineers go way beyond the basic installation.  Our engineers are cross-trained to ensure the deployment doesn’t just stop at the gear itself.  This includes optimizing your system for peak performance, and also the acoustic environment you’ll be mixing in.  But more importantly, how sound is only part of the entire post-production process.  This means ensuring your editing and mixing suite inter-ops with your shared storage solutions (SAN or NAS) as well as integrating into the workflows your video creatives depend on.

Key Code Media is also Avid’s #1 Worldwide Dealer.  This means we understand today’s post-production audio hardware and software tools and the video solutions that complement them.

Continuing Education: Audio Magic For Video Editors

Key Code Media is committed to not just recommending technology, but ensuring you are able to use it to realize your true creative ability.  That’s where Audio Magic for Video Editors came from.

The Audio Magic for Video Editors Seminar is a one-hour hands-on presentation designed to arm the Video Editor with practical sound essentials that can be used daily in any video project, small or large.

These techniques are delivered in Pro Tools but largely apply to any audio and/or video editing system (i.e. Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X) using everyday language with no “audio-speak.”

Topics include: sound basics, Pro Tools co-installed on a video editing system, best practices, Avid Dock S3 and S6 control surfaces, dialog fixes, audio restoration, music editing, and creating perfect loops.
