The new MB3 and BB6 main monitors went down a storm last week when they made their debut at NAMM 2017. ‘Mind blowing’, ‘amazing’ and ‘terrifyingly accurate’ were just some of the positive comments we received from the top artists, producers and engineers who visited our booth to check them out.
Comments from the professionals from the floor: “It’s hard to make me speechless, but they blew me away,” DJ and producer Jazzy Jeff and “Awesome” - Producer David Reitzas (Nominated for Best Traditional Pop Album at the 2016 Grammys for Barbara Streisand's Encore)
Others hooked on the forensic level of detail who joined us for the launch were Grammy Award-winning producer Tony Maserati; Grammy Award- winning mastering engineer Pete Lyman; top mix engineers Jon Catelli and Brad Haehnel; film and TV music composer Rick Marvin and mastering engineer Steve Marsh.
The new MB3 and BB6 models – are ultra-high-resolution active monitors with digital and analogue inputs, designed for freestanding or soffit-mounted use in recording, mixing, mastering applications, and available as single- or twin-cabinet (XBD) versions. Both marry the effortlessly extended low-frequency response, wide dynamic range, non-fatiguing sound and extreme tonal accuracy and consistency of PMC's ATL™ bass loading designs with the power of the proprietary Class-D amplification first unveiled on the QB1-A main studio monitor - now the reference of Hollywood's Capitol Studios.
GRAMMY award-winning Engineer, Pete Lyman (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Weezer, Panic! at the Disco and Fall Out Boy), also visited us at this year's NAMM Show. Pete was keen to hear how the new BB6 XBD-As compare to the BB5-As that he uses in his LA based studio – Infrasonic Mastering.
