Showtek chooses ATC SCM50A SL Pro

  Wednesday 19 November 2014, 11:26
After an intensive listening test, Showtek brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen decided to choose ATC for their main monitor system. It was love at first sight. Not only did the SCM50A sound more agreeable than what they were used to listen to, the monitor also gave them much more useful information to go on. The actively powered SCM50A SL's are fed from a Grace Design m905 monitor controller.

Sjoerd: Our new ATC's really sound super. No matter whether you play them on high or low volume, the energy of the highs, mids and lows is so much more in balance now. Over here we produce club- as well as pop mixes and for both music styles the ATC's work wonders. With our previous monitors it was quite hard to get the vocals placed well into the mix. That is so much easier now.

Wouter: "If your mix sounds good on the ATC's, that track sounds good on any system".

Sjoerd: There's no need to play loud if you want to mix right. Which is a blessing for your ears. Especially when you're making long studio hours like we do.

The SCM50A SL is like an Audi RS6. A "muscle car" that doesn't attract much attention at first. But once you step on the gas, it takes of like a rocket. And they look extremely cool, of course.
