XBOX: Quantum Break Trailer in 5.1 Surround

There wasn't much sound design needed on this epic time-warping trailer for XBOX's new hit Quantum Break, but that's ok because we gave it a killer surround mix! The spot features a cover of Nirvana's Come As You Are, a tune I love and grew up with. We had all the music splits for the cover, so it was easy to fly synth pads around the room, quadruple the guitars and really immerse the listener in the dark moody score. Agency 215 was the creative team behind the piece, and all XBOX spots we do together are mixed in 5.1 for surround playback on the XBOX platform itself, which broadcasts 6-channel audio.
