Composer Youki Yamamoto Feels Childish Delight in His New PMC Monitors

No matter how old you are, it is always lovely when something excites you enough to feel like a child again – and that is exactly how renowned musician, composer and orchestrator Youki Yamamoto felt the first time he heard PMC monitors in his own studio.

Yamamoto has had a 15 year residence at Pinewood Studios where he creates his own music as well as other compositions for films and computer games. He is also equally at home in Katara Studios, Doha, which is where he first had the idea of investing in a pair of PMC monitors for his own facility.

After doing some research, he chose PMC MB2 monitors with a separate Class A Bryston amp because he felt this was the most versatile system for any kind of music. “I get all the lovely clarity and detail that PMC delivers, but I don’t get tired listening all day and the sound is so beautiful that I find it hard to leave the studio,” he says. “I just want to stay in there and keep working. It is almost like being with your first ever girlfriend!”

PMC Appoints Vintage Studios As Its Thai Distributor For All Pro Audio Monitors Posted: 08/11/2019
PMC Appoints Vintage Studios As Its Thai Distributor For All Pro Audio Monitors

PMC Speakers is delighted to announce that Vintage Studios has been appointed as its official distributor in Thailand, with responsibility for the company’s entire range of professional monitoring products.

Located in the Bang Na district of Bangkok, Vintage Studios was established in 2002 by the Puengrusme family as a commercial music recording, mixing and mastering facility. The Puengrusme family’s passion for music and attention to detail secured a strong future for Vintage Studios and a reputation for delivering very high quality results.

In 2016 Vintage Studios added a new string to its bow by taking on distribution for Solid State Logic products. It now distributes various high-end pro audio brands including Furman, Bock Audio and Soundelux. In addition, it has expanded into the education sphere and runs demonstrations, training courses and university internship programmes at its three-studio complex in conjunction with manufacturers and Thai educational institutes.

The decision to enter a distribution agreement with PMC was an easy one for Vintage Studios. The facility has PMC monitors in all three control rooms – MB3 XBD-A and twotwo6 monitors in its main room, twotwo8 monitors in its second studio and the recently launched compact nearfield result6 monitors in studio three.

DPA 6066 Subminiature Headset Mic Nominated for Prestigious TEC Award Posted: 05/11/2019
DPA and rsquo;s 6066 Subminiature Headset Mic Nominated for Prestigious TEC Award

DPA Microphones6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone is a nominee for the 35th Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the Microphones – Sound Reinforcement Category. Products that are nominated for a TEC Award have made a significant impact on modern sound and music. With a capsule measuring in at just three millimeters in diameter, the 6066 microphones may be small, but they are powerful in terms of performance – making this solution an ideal candidate for a TEC Award.

 

Featuring CORE by DPA technology, the mic reduces distortion, increases dynamic range and features a frequency range of 20Hz-20kHz along with a noise floor of only 24dB(A). The 6066 also benefits from a completely redesigned, lightweight, one-size-fits-all headset that attaches over the ears for maximum comfort and includes a spring mechanism that grips below the head/ears for added security. It even received a Red Dot design award for its innovative and user-friendly design.

 

“We put a great deal of time and energy into designing a headset microphone that is elegant and implements all of the features we wanted in a small package,” says René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones. “The 6000 series capsule is the smallest we have ever designed. It required working on the edge of what is physically possible in order to get the renowned sound of the five-millimeter capsule of the 4066 into the new three-millimeter capsule of the 6066. The goal behind this microphone was to develop a solution that would be nearly invisible, to both live and broadcast audiences, while providing crystal-clear sound. The 6066 is discreet and visually appealing, and does not compromise on sound quality.”

 

Since its launch, the 6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone has received rave reviews. Its secure, lightweight, unobtrusive and comfortable design, coupled with DPA’s renowned natural and pristine sound-quality, has led to significant sales around the world and across various market sectors, including broadcast, theatre and live sound.
