elbow’s new album The Take Off and Landing of Everything was mixed and mastered using PMC loudspeakers.
Written and recorded at Blueprint Studios in Salford and Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, the mixing was achieved using PMC’s IB2S three-way monitors and the active twotwo.6 nearfields, which were recently installed by the band at their facility.
The band exclusively chose PMC monitors for the studio and models from PMC's twenty series for their homes. With PMC speakers across all locations, the members of elbow were able to record in their dedicated studio and audition the results with exactly the same tonal signature in their homes.
Using London’s Metropolis Mastering (where Tim Young, using PMC BB5 XBD-A large-scale monitors, mastered the album) further ensured the continuity of loudspeaker voicing though to the mastering stage.
"Fans appreciate how much elbow pride themselves in the quality of their work from start to finish, and this is borne out by the use of our loudspeakers. If you really want to hear it as they intended, PMC is the obvious choice," comments Paul O’Farrell Stevens of PMC.
PMC has three pairs of tickets for elbow’s forthcoming tour available for winners in its Facebook competition. Visit www.facebook.com/pmcspeakers for details.
