About 2 weeks ago I posted that we were expecting the last of our 4 bids for the build out of our post production audio mixing suite. Well, 2 weeks later I’m still waiting for our final bid but it’s not the 4th but rather the 6th. As things turned out, we got a few companies get in the game a bit late. One was a referral from our acoustic designer and the other was a referral because they have built this type of place before. Anyway, a couple phone calls, e-mails and site visits later, we should have the final bids today. Then the fun starts. We expect all of the bids to be over our budget so we need to figure out what’s making up the numbers for each, determine how we can change the design of the room without adversely affecting the acoustics of the room, determine who’s the best qualified for the job, then get going. This whole process has taken longer than we hoped but in some cases it’s the most important room in our whole place so paying attention to detail is more important that getting it done fast. Fast and crappy won’t cut it. Thank goodness we have Audio B fully functional so we can still record, audio edit and do some basic mix work.
