Santa Monica, CA (June 12, 2008)–Music scoring mixer Alan Meyerson, who recently completed soundtracks for Iron Man and Kung Fu Panda, has purchased six Bricasti Model 7 Stereo Reverb Processors following an evaluation.
“Sure, plug-ins are okay,” offers Meyerson, “but I need a world-class external reverb for creating realistic-sounding ambiences and reverberant spaces for my motion-picture soundtracks. As soon as I heard the new Bricasti Model 7, I knew that I had found what I was looking for. I’m so impressed with this powerful unit that I ended up purchasing a total of six Model 7 Stereo Reverb Processors. They sound amazing!”
Meyerson specified a half-dozen Model 7 Stereo Reverb Processors because of a need to prepare separate 5.1-channel surround sound for the movie soundtracks on which he works: “I might use, for example, three units on string elements and another three on brass: the first Model 7 for left and center, the second for right and center, and the third for surrounds. And for conventional stereo sessions, I might need to prepare as many as six separate stems.”
Meyerson recalls that his first evaluation session with the Bricasti Design Model 7 came during an orchestral session. “Compared to my [reference external reverb], the Model 7 provides additional depth and size–it was, as I can best describe it, a more complete sound. The reverb tails, in particular, are clear sounding and more full. As a result, I discovered that I needed less reverb, which means that it doesn’t muddy the orchestral tracks. For me, the M7 sounds better, wider and fatter.”
Meyerson’s upcoming releases include The Dark Knight, with joint composers Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening and X-Files 2. The engineer/producer spends much of his time at Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions in Santa Monica, CA. He also operates his own mix room.
