Los Angeles, CA (February 18, 2015)—Scott Gershin, a supervising sound editor and sound designer at The Formosa Group in Los Angeles, has installed Barefoot Sound MicroMain 27 monitors is his post production studio.
“I listened to my work through a lot of speakers, almost 20 different brands,” explained Gershin. “I narrowed my selection down to a short list and after a lot of listening ended up going with Barefoot.”
Gershin, who has received 10 MPSE Golden Reel Awards, was one of the first to use computers in sound design for film and has been credited with bringing film quality sound into the interactive entertainment industry.
“A lot of people want to hear low-end to get rid of it. I need to hear the low end to make it translate correctly, to make it punchier,” he continues. “The low-end component in a film or game mix is very important. A lot of times, I’m working in 2.1, 5.1, 7.1 or Atmos. I needed to be able to hear how the Barefoots would respond to a full range of material.”
He elaborates on his Barefoot experience, “Another plus for these speakers, which is not why I bought them, but boy, is it nice to have those four different profiles on the speaker that emulate theoretically a super-high end Aurotone tone, an NS-10, and what they call flat and then hi-fi.”
