PMC Present Tommy Vicari at NAMM '15

Tommy Vicari, leading mixing engineer and long-time user of PMC, will be on hand at the company's NAMM booth (Hall A, Booth 6598) to demonstrate the newly launched twotwo sub2 active subwoofer, the latest addition to the twotwo range of active nearfield monitors. Throughout the show attendees will have the opportunity to step inside a custom sound cabin to hear mixes by Vicari on the premium line, which also includes the twotwo.5, twotwo.6 and twotwo.8.

With over 30 years of industry experience, Vicari has mixed for many TV series and movies including, Wall-E, Saving Mr. Banks, Finding Nemo, The Adjustment Bureau, Revolutionary Road and The Help. With his long history in the industry, Vicari recently won his sixth Primetime Emmy® Award for his work on the HBO movie, Behind the Candelabra, which also earned him a prestigious Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for Television Movie or Mini-Series. Additionally, Vicari has picked up multiple Grammy® nominations and a Grammy® Award for "Best Engineered Album" for his work with such artists as Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, Gino Vanelli, Gordon Goodwin, Barbra Streisand, Billy Idol, and Prince.

"During my career, I've learned how crucial it is to playback audio through quality monitors and other brands can't compare to the sound PMC monitors produce," says Vicari. "I'm looking forward to this opportunity to demonstrate the twotwo line for the NAMM crowd and for anyone that has never heard the clarity of PMC to stop by and witness it firsthand."  

PMC's twotwo series encompasses a sophisticated digital signal processing and active amplification to create a range of stunningly accurate, versatile, and compact two-way reference grade monitors. The twotwo series models all share the same core design and features - the model number refers to the approximate size (in inches) of the bass driver, with larger numbers denoting increasing cabinet volume, greater bass extension and higher SPL capabilities.

The brand new twotwo sub2 is a subwoofer designed to complement the twotwo range, providing greater headroom and dynamics than its smaller sibling, the twotwo sub1. The new sub2 is a low-distortion, active subwoofer featuring PMC's unique ATL™ bass-loading technology, Class-D amplification and DSP-based filtering and bass management, which extends bass output significantly with negligible harmonic distortion. The sub2 also features a highly rigid, braced cabinet, ensuring that unwanted colouration is reduced to inaudible levels.

PMC will also showcase the QB1 Active (QB1-A) main studio monitor, recently debuted at AES 2014. The QB1-A is a large-scale, ultra-high-resolution main studio monitor with analogue and digital (up to 192kHz) inputs, ideal for either soffit-mounted or free-standing use.
