NAMM 2015: PMC partnering with Tommy Vicari

Leading mixing engineer and PMC devotee Tommy Vicari will be present at the company’s NAMM booth to demonstrate the twotwo sub2 active subwoofer, the latest addition to the twotwo range of active nearfield monitors.

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 movie and TV credits including Wall-E, Saving Mr. Banks, Finding Nemo, The Adjustment Bureau, Revolutionary Road and The Help, Vicari has racked up over 30 years in the industry and recently won his sixth Primetime Emmy Award and the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for his work on the HBO movie Behind the Candelabra. 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," said 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 digital signal processing and active amplification to create a range of 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 twotwo sub2 is a low-distortion, active subwoofer featuring PMC’s 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) ultra-high resolution main studio monitor, featuring analogue and digital (up to 192kHz) inputs, and can be found during the NAMM Show in Hall A at Booth 6598.
