Veteran mixing engineer demo’s PMC products at NAMM


Tommy Vicari, leading mixing engineer and long-time user of PMC, will be on hand
at the company’s booth (Hall A, Booth 6598) at the National Association of Music
Merchants (NAMM) Show 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. The 2015 NAMM Show takes place in Anaheim,
California from 22 to 25 January.

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. Vicari recently won
his sixth Primetime Emmy Award for his work on the HBO movie, Behind the
, 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

“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.
