Biggleswade, U.K. (August 28, 2015)—Musician, producer and songwriter Greg Wells has installed PMC MB2S-XBD speakers at his facility in Los Angeles.
Wells has notched up collaborations with a host of artists including Adele, Katy Perry, Elton John, OneRepublic and Celine Dion. His songs have appeared on over 85 million albums and his work has earned him multiple Grammy nominations.
Although he has worked at recording studios all over the world, Wells prefers the comfort and privacy of his own studio in Los Angeles, a warehouse that used to be car mechanic’s workshop but has been his base since he converted it into a four-room recording studio 14 years ago. “I never rent it out as it’s all customized to exactly how I want things set up,” he explains.
Regarding the PMC speakers, he says, “These are the only speakers I’ve ever worked on where I only hear the music itself. There are no speaker artifacts, and nothing to get used to. The very first mix I did on them was one of the best I’ve ever done and I thought it was a fluke. I had the same reaction to the second mix. It’s enormously helpful to be able to listen like this at my studio.”
Wells is currently producing a new album for singer-songwriter Regina Spektor and says the PMC speakers are playing an integral part in the project.
“We are building everything on these speakers, and prior to that, I mixed the latest Mika album on the PMCs. I have also acquired a pair of PMC twotwo.6 nearfield monitors, which I fell in love with after PMC lent me a pair during a recent songwriting session in London. Once again, the mixes done on the twotwo.6s translated effortlessly everywhere else and that inspired me to buy some for my home studio.”
