Biggleswade, U.K. (December 12, 2016)—Wiktorów Studio, a new recording facility near the Kampinos National Park in Poland, has installed PMC IB2S monitors in its main control room.
Based in the small village of Wiktorów, the studio opened its doors three months ago, and is already attracting projects, from traditional music recording to sound design for computer games, voiceover recording and post production for movies. Studio owner Jacek Kopaski and producer/engineer Patrick Multan built the facility from the ground up and specified what they wanted in terms of equipment and acoustics.
“As we were starting from zero, we had the opportunity to plan everything exactly how we wanted it—from the general layout of the room to the equipment in it,” says Multan. “Our control room was always planned as a top-end facility, so everything in the chain had to be of the best quality.”
With help from Robert Fijakowski, head of Polish distributor MJ Audio Lab, Kopaski and Multan demoed a variety of speaker systems before choosing PMC IB2S monitors. Fijakowski also assisted with the acoustic measurement of the control room and supplied the Vicoustic panels.
“We chose them because they had the power and clarity we needed,” Multan says. “These speakers sound just how we want them to sound—very clear at the bottom end, even without a subwoofer, and very precise in the mid-range.
“They are also easy to listen to and not at all tiring—to the extent that I sometimes stay mixing for much longer than I had planned. I can also do so much more because I can hear all the little tweaks. The more I mix with them, the more confident I feel. It’s not easy to work when you hear every little detail, but it does force you to listen to what is actually happening with the sound.”
