Industry pro is adept at radio, television, music and film
Verbatim Studios announced this week the hiring of mixer Micah Kovacs. Formerly of Pink Noise, Kovacs has nearly a decade of experience editing, mixing, engineering and sound designing in almost every medium.
After graduating from SUNY Albany, Kovacs interned at Hungry Man in New York and spent time as an assistant at 3 Fingered Louie. At Pink Noise, he was swiftly promoted to Chief Audio Engineer, where he worked with clients including Doritos, Chevrolet, Amp, and Visa, and almost every major advertising agency: BBDO, Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA\Chiat\Day, Wieden+Kennedy, and many more. Along with commercial television and radio, Kovacs also tackled projects in new media as well as short films and industrials.
Kovacs studied art and digital video in college. Initially interested in editing but propelled
by his passion for playing strings and percussion, he changed course to focus on audio post production. Kovacsâ€™ sound design and production work is regularly recognized in the festival and award circuits; he won a Radio Mercury Award in 2007 for his work on a spot for Consumerâ€™s Energy.
Kovacsâ€™ skill set is diverse and always expanding. Recently certified in Reason and Ableton Live, he has also mastered nearly every audio and video suite there is. Music sweetening, Foley, sampling, and music composition are just a few of his strengths.
â€œMicah is the perfect addition to the studio talent we already have in place at Verbatim,â€? said partner Dan Price. â€œHis range is what will serve him well here. From his surround work, to his musical talent, he pretty much does everythingâ€”and gets awards for it, too. Which we like around here. Weâ€™re excited to have him.â€?
"There couldn't be a better match, Verbatim and myself,â€? said Kovacs. â€œFrom their award-winning work to their exceptional client service, the talent and dedication at Verbatim is unsurpassed. The first-rate studios and refreshing atmosphere make it the perfect place to work with clients."
