Producer and sound engineer David Wrench has installed a pair of Unity Audio Rock MkII monitors in his London studio.
Wrench has worked with the likes of the Manic Street Preachers, Goldfrapp, Hot Chip and Bat for Lashes among others.
Each of Wrench’s new Rock MKII’s is equipped with a 100 watt discrete bi-polar feedback amplifier. The Rock uses a 50KHz folded ribbon tweeter and the 180mm woofer features a 0.2mm aluminum foil. The combination of drivers delivers a frequency response of 37Hz-38kHz +/- 3db and provides a microscopic view of any programme system is also incorporated to eliminate cabinet flexing.
Mixing in 7.1, Wrench added a further five Rock monitors to complete a 7.1 live backing track mix for Frank Ocean.
“I heard the mix results on a huge festival PA system and once again there were no nasty surprises, perfect translation from the studio to the stage," he said.
The Rock’s low mid is excellent

"I’m a huge Rocks fan and bought my first pair a while ago," continued Wrench. "They’re different to any of my existing monitors. I usually use three different sets of monitor in order to get a good contrast. The Rocks low mid is excellent and that’s an area where I find a lot of smaller speakers tend to struggle and it’s such an important frequency band.”
Wrench started his career back in the 90s after being inspired by dance music and in 1990 he released the first Welsh–language acid house 12–inch, ‘Lledrith Lliw’, as Nid Madagascar.
In subsequent years, he put out a sporadic sequence of albums under his own name and has gone on to become a multi award winning producer and engineer.
