Leeds, UK (December 1, 2016)—Sound designer and feature film supervising sound editor Scott Gershin, who recently joined Technicolor as its director of sound editorial, has installed Nugen Audio's Loudness Toolkit 2 and Halo Upmix plug-ins.
Gershin is using the Loudness Toolkit 2 in concert with an Avid Pro Tools | S6 control surface to produce loudness-compliant mixes on a wide range of projects. Halo Upmix gives him an efficient, reliable, and powerful means of creating a high-quality 5.1/7.1 surround upmix from stereo source materials.
Gershin has worked on over 100 films and received 26 industry nominations. He has also created the sound for blockbuster gaming titles such as Resident Evil, Gears of War and Fable, and he most recently helped out on id Software's Doom. Gershin is leading Technicolor’s expansion into sound design for gaming and immersive experiences and also continues to design and supervise sound for films.
"The most important consideration for audio tools and plug-ins is that they work transparently and do their job without adding coloration to the output," Gershin said. "Not only do the Nugen Audio tools make my life easier, but they deliver output that sounds as close as possible to the original source materials. Plus, the reliability and quality of the tools is fantastic."
He continued, "The Loudness Toolkit 2 has become indispensable in my work, because I'm expected to deliver mixes that meet different loudness thresholds depending on where and how they'll be played out, including different standards for different end-user devices. The toolkit gives me a full arsenal of plug-ins for metering to LKFS and LUFS targets and for creating a true-peak-compliant mix for any delivery platform. And it's remarkable how well the Nugen Audio tools complement the Avid Pro Tools paradigm."
