SoundPro ’18 Insider #1: PMC –– Reinhardt

Posted on: Wednesday 5th of September 2018

Over the next month, the Resolution newsletter will be bringing you information and insight from some of the exhibitors who you can meet at SoundPro’18 on October 6th

PMC-in-Tape-Studio_webPMC,  the Professional Monitor Company, will be at the Ealing Town Hall event on Saturday, October 6th. The manufacturer was recently involved in a major install at Tape, London’s newest private members club with an in-house studio. This has recently been used to record and mix projects for artists including Migos, Steel Banglez, and Justin Timberlake’s band.

 

As a winner of Best Club at the London Bar and Club Awards and Best Late Venue at the World Lifestyle Awards, Tape prides itself on offering “an elegant party experience for its elite, global crowd”. Having a world-class studio on site is a major draw for Tape’s clientele, says studio director Heff Moraes, because it gives artists and producers immediate access to high-end recording equipment such as the PMC QB1 XBD-A main monitors – the first of their kind to be installed in the UK and the “perfect complement” for Tape’s sonically accurate studio control room.

By linking its studio to its live stage, Tape can also record artists who are performing at the club, and this added functionality is proving extremely popular.

“The studio has been extremely busy since opening at the end of November 2017 and we’ve been tackling some really exciting projects,” Moraes says. “We recorded and mixed Justin Timberlake’s band when they performed at the club recently, and we’ve also just started a monthly Live Nights collaboration with MTV, which is held in our Members lounge (also equipped with PMC BB6 monitors) and recorded and mixed in the studio.The first event was a huge success with Jorja Smith headlining and Heady One supporting.”

Moraes adds that the sheer power and clarity of Tape’s QB1 XBD-A monitors have gone down very well with everyone working in the studio. “Tape Studio is unique, the best studio in the world attached directly to a club venue,” Moraes says, “and the PMC monitors certainly meet – if not exceed – our expectations.”


 


reinhardt_dot_tv Reinhardt is a leading manufacturer of quality microphone windshields and accessories for pro users, broadcast, film and TV, as well as the serious enthusiast. “Our goal is to deliver products of the best quality with total customer satisfaction,” says the company’s Rodney Wilkins, who will be on the booth at SoundPro’18.
reinhardt_Rodney_Wilkins_location_sound“Our main background comes from location recording, which bought us to microphone windscreen design and manufacture,” he continues. “Since Reinhardt was taken over by the Ziegenbein group of companies some three years ago, Reinhardt has been very much involved in external product development as well as development of machines both mechanical and electronic, for other manufacturing companies.”

The company’s main manufacturing facility is located in Denmark, while administration and a small percentage of production comes out of head office in Schorndorf, near Stuttgart in Germany. A truly international brand!

“You can meet us at SoundPro 2018 where once again we will be showing new products aimed at making the sound recordist’s life just a little bit easier,” says Wilkins. “Visit our stand and have a chat about mic concealing techniques and solving noise problems as well as our new SportsZep, tailor made for Sports OB.”

Wilkins will also be hosting a problem-solving workshop during the afternoon. www.soundpro.org.uk/sessions/rodney/
