Verbatim Studios has hired mixer Micah Kovacs. Formerly of Pink Noise, Kovacs has nearly a decade of experience editing, mixing, engineering and sound designing in almost every medium.
After graduating from SUNY Albany, Kovacs interned at Hungry Man in New York and spent time as an assistant at 3 Fingered Louie. At Pink Noise, he was swiftly promoted to chief audio engineer, where he worked with clients including Doritos, Chevrolet, Amp and Visa, and major advertising agencies like BBDO, Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA\Chiat\Day, Wieden+Kennedy, and many more. Along with commercial television and radio, Kovacs also tackled projects in new media as well as short films and industrials.
Kovacs studied art and digital video in college. Initially interested in editing but propelled by his passion for playing strings and percussion, he changed course to focus on audio postproduction. Music sweetening, Foley, sampling, and music composition are just a few of his strengths.
“Micah is the perfect addition to the studio talent we already have in place at Verbatim,” said partner Dan Price. “His range is what will serve him well here. From his surround work, to his musical talent, he pretty much does everything, which we like around here. We’re excited to have him.”
