Santa Monica, CA (November 6, 2014)—Audio post services house Margarita Mix of Santa Monica has installed a fourth Fairlight EVO integrated audio production system for the company’s award-winning team of sound designers, mixers and composers.
With the upgrade, the facility’s sound mixers Paul Hurtubise, Jimmy Hite, Nathan Dubin and Jeff Levy are now working on identical audio post platforms in their HD mixing suites. Margarita Mix, a FotoKem company, specializes in audio post services for commercials and advertising media.
“The facility was already working extensively on Fairlight, and after careful evaluation and testing, I made the transition,” says Hurtubise, who joined Margarita Mix in late 2012 with over 20 years of experience in commercial audio post.
Having used a number of platforms over the course of his career, Hurtubise notes, “I simply think Fairlight sounds better. It’s less fatiguing on the ears, and I seem to hear things more clearly and definitively.
