Trevor Morris uses a trio of PMC IB2S monitors when composing soundtracks for films like The Hills Have Eyes II. Irvine, CA (July 13, 2007) — PMC has supplied a trio of IB2S monitors to Trevor Morris Music. Arrayed in a left-center-right configuration, the IB2S units are externally powered by Classe 400W mono blocks, with a Bryston LFE crossover to drive a separate subwoofer.
Based in Santa Monica, CA, the facility serves as the home base for film composer Trevor Morris, who used the systems recently while preparing the soundtrack for director Martin Weisz’ The Hills Have Eyes II; the PMC monitors are also being used on other film and TV scoring projects.
Adding PMC monitors was the “best studio decision I have made in a long time,” Morris offers. “I absolutely love and trust them. What the PMCs do for me, which no other monitor has done, is they provide a big-league depth of field that is of key importance for orchestral/three-dimensional mixing. They are still very honest throughout the critical midrange while, and most importantly, remaining an inspiring speaker to listen to. I have owned other speakers that sound pretty good–until you listen to your mixes some place else. And then shock sets in!
“With the PMCs I really know what I am hearing, which is critical for modern film scores, which deal not only with low, mids and highs, but also, in terms of mix depth, close, medium and far. I love listening to music again on my speakers, for both critical reasons and for pure enjoyment.”
“The mid-range and top-end of my IB2S monitors simply shine in their ability to honestly and inspirationally represent my composition and recording process,” Morris enthuses. “Mixing and recording music should really be about reacting on an emotional level and trusting what you hear.”
In addition to The Hills Have Eyes II, Morris used a PMC system while recording the score for Showtime’s series The Tudors.
