Hyperactive Broadcast supplied the Grimsby production with a Pro Tools Edit suite which was installed and monitored by Hyperactives very own pro tools guru, Simon Tomkinson.
Simon was the perfect choice for this job, his love for all things audio and extensive knowledge of Pro tools meant he was able to configure the Pro Tools suite to the exact specifications of the Grimsby sound editor and also confidently assist the editorial staff with any issues that they had.
