New York, NY (May 4, 2006)–After weeks of renovation on a new state-of-the-art Pro Tools|HD3 mix suite, Times Square’s full-service post facility, Editional Effects, is opening its doors to Dave Huston, the most recent addition to the team of audio engineers at EENYC. With Huston settled into Studio B, the trifecta of audio technicians is complete, allowing EENYC to offer an increased amount of mixing time with three highly skilled engineers.
Originally from Portland, OR, Huston traveled cross country and quickly worked his way up the ladder at New York’s renowned Hit Factory studios, transitioning from assistant to engineer in a matter of months. At Hit Factory, Huston worked with such A-list musical talents as Ashanti, Mariah Carey, Ja Rule, and LL Cool J.
When The Hit Factory closed its doors in early 2005, Huston joined Manhattan sound facility audioEngine, working with a vast array of clients, including Saatchi & Saatchi, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Kirshenbaum Bond + Partners, and Cliff Freeman and Partners, and completing successful television spots for Reebok, Burger King, AFLAC, L’Oreal, TBS, and many others.
In addition to television, freelance music and film projects, Huston’s talents also include music creation and composition, which were cultivated at Berklee College of Music, where he received the MIX magazine scholarship for excellence and also developed his musical abilities on drums and saxophone.
Highlighting the importance of his musical background for working in post production, Huston says, “I think being a musician and composer is a huge asset when mixing. Most spots contain music, and being able to add music or edit the music properly is extremely valuable.”
Huston begins his Editional Effects career by mixing a long-running Nickelodeon project called “Let’s Just Play,” a national program that promotes healthy and active lifestyles in children. With Huston’s diverse audio background, he is an invaluable creative asset to the team and will surely contribute to the high standard of audio expertise at EENYC.
