New Fairlight Features in DaVinci Resolve
Truly Professional Tools
Everything you need to deliver incredible cinema sound!
DaVinci Resolve’s Fairlight audio page is a complete integrated digital audio workstation for Film and TV! You get a massive set of recording, editing, mixing, sweetening, finishing and mastering tools. With the Fairlight Audio Accelerator you get state of the art sub-millisecond super low latency. There simply is no other software with this level of dedicated audio power!
Create complex compositions and multiple delivery formats!
Each track corresponds to a channel strip on the mixer. You get real time 6 band parametric EQ, along with expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics on every single track. In addition, clip time warping lets you stretch or compress audio without shifting pitch. It works at the subframe level for absolutely perfect synchronization! The powerful busing structure has several main, sub, and aux buses so you can prepare multiple deliverable formats all at the same time!
Record automation for virtually any parameter, even plug-ins!
Comprehensive clip-aware automation includes touch, trim, slow-mo, preview and fill modes. In addition to automating traditional parameters such as pan, level and EQ, Fairlight audio lets you record changes in every single parameter during live playback! You can even automate changes in native and VST plug-in parameters over time!
Record voice overs, ADR, foley and more!
When it comes to recording, DaVinci Resolve’s Fairlight audio lets you produce multi layered recordings quickly and easily. Real time punch in lets you record at any moment during live playback and you get a complete set of sophisticated ADR tools for replacing dialog.
Fairlight Audio Accelerator
High performance low latency performance!
For the absolute best performance, add a Fairlight Audio Accelerator to your system! You’ll get blazing performance with amazing sub‑millisecond latency for hundreds of tracks with full real time processing of EQ, expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics, and up to 6 real time plug‑ins per channel!
Incredibly flexible monitoring lets you choose between multiple speaker sets!
The advanced Fairlight monitoring system handles buses up to 24 channels wide. Sources can be selected from internal buses or external inputs and sent out to 16 different sets of speakers! You also get customizable fold-up and fold-down when crossing between formats. For example, if you’re monitoring 5.1 on a pair of stereo speakers, it automatically folds down for output to 2 channels. For cinematic setups, you can add an optional B-Chain processor for installations with up to 64 speakers!
3D Audio Soundspace
Work with advanced spatial audio formats!
Fairlight audio features built in 3D audio support for working with spatial formats such as 5.1, 7.1 and even 22.2. You get a 3D panner to position sound in space, 3D B-chain processing and 3D Spaceview™ visualization which provides a clear view of each object’s location in space.
Fairlight Professional Consoles
Modular and upgradable desktop or free standing consoles!
Fairlight mixing consoles provide high quality controls for nearly every parameter and feature in the software. Unique user interfaces and fast to use buttons and controls allow quick mapping of the console keys into a configuration that is optimized for the task at hand, allowing you to work faster with Fairlight audio than any other tool in the world!
See all sources and bus outputs at a glance!
The Fairlight audio page in DaVinci Resolve provides extensive metering of all sources in your project. In addition to sources, you can also meter sub and aux bus outputs as well as view compound meters with phase and loudness.
