South Africa (June 23, 2010)–The Mastermax (MMX) Studios facilities employed a surround setup of ADAM monitors for the recording of the 2010 World Cup opening ceremony music.
For the World Cup project, ADAM Audio collaborated with co-executive producer and composer Mr. Lebo M, (also known for his work on the movies The Lion King, Congo, Tears of the Sun and more), arranger Themba Mkhize and orchestrator Peter McLea.
According to Johan van der Colff, MMX Studios, “Since buying our first pair of ADAMs in 2006, we have never looked back. The tonal balance and imaging on the ADAM monitors is outstanding and I just fell in love with the natural sound of the ribbon tweeters and the fact that ADAM does not use digital processing in the monitors to make up for imperfections in the design.
“Currently we have a full surround ADAM Audio setup consisting of P33a’s, A7s and a Sub 8, and we have used it on a few of the multi platinum selling DVDs that has been mixed here. Recently, we added the new S3X-H. We are also in the planning stages for a large format final mixing studio for film post and are considering the new S7A Mk 2s as our main surround monitor set for this studio.”
