Gateway Mastering Uses Sonoris Software For Client Proofing

Sonoris has announced that Gateway Mastering Studios is using a customized and branded version of the Sonoris DDP Player — dubbed Gateway Player — for its client review process.

The Gateway Player can import both DDP and disk image files generated by engineers working on the studio's Pyramix digital audio workstation. When clients want only WAV files, the team at Gateway Mastering uses the Sonoris software to export WAV files that can then be sent for client review.

Adam Ayan, a mastering engineer at Gateway, said his colleagues send clients the small Gateway Player app along with installers and a disk image file. It installs on a Mac or PC and can be used by clients to play back audio files, export WAV files and burn CDs. Because the software doesn't require a license, clients can pass the player on to other reviewers at will.

"The Gateway Player has turned out to be a great solution for reviewing album projects," said Ayan. "It allows us and our clients to hear the transitions between songs and to get a macro view of the project. The software offers a convenient way to get our arms around different ways of hearing it."
