THX officially welcomes SonicPool to our network of THX Certified Post Production studios.

A THX Certified Studio is a motion picture dubbing theater where directors, sound designers and mixers bring soundtracks to life. These studios are meticulously designed to THX performance specifications to accurately capture every bass note, surround effect and piece of dialogue during the mixing session. By focusing on room design and acoustics, including the quality of the studio production equipment, THX provides filmmakers and recording artists the ultimate environment to mix their magic.

  • Precision engineering: studio acoustics, optimized speaker layouts, THX Approved equipment and calibrated audio/video systems combine to create an ideal environment for sound recording, design and mixing.
  • Creative and quality control: Provides filmmakers confidence that what they are hearing during mixing sessions will translate the same to the cinema and home.
  • Neutral studio: THX ensures a transparent environment where the room has minimal effect on the mix
