SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Dutch DJ and Producer Mark Sixma has several chart-topping tracks to his name and other major DJ’s including Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, and DJ Tiesto have played his music. Currently signed to Armada Music, an award-winning label in The Netherlands, Sixma is touring and playing some of the largest dance festivals in the world. When he is packing his sonic suitcase Sixma includes HARMAN’s Lexicon PCM Total Bundle reverb/effects plug-in.
“This bundle is my first Lexicon product. As I travel a lot, I usually prefer to work “in the box” as much as possible,” explained Sixma. “Carrying around lots of hardware on tour wasn’t an option for me. Luckily there’s no need for that with the PCM Total Bundle.”
Sixma quickly found a use for the PCM Native Reverb plug-ins on many of his different projects. “A lot of other reverb plug-ins out there sound like they just add an extra sound to an instrumental or vocal part, while the PCM Native Reverb plug-ins blend really well with the source. Which results in a very realistic and pleasant sound,” commented Sixma.
For Sixma the best aspect of Lexicon plugins is simply the quality of the sound. “I love how the plug-ins sound on vocals and traditional instruments like strings or piano. In fact I think they sound great on pretty much anything I throw at them.”
Additionally, the popular Dutch DJ relies on the Total Bundle’s cleverly programmed presets to quickly get the sound he is looking for, without impeding his creative process. Sixma also believes Lexicon surpasses other plug-ins with their capability to blend so well with the source.
Commenting on his favorite effect in the bundle, Sixma couldn’t decide, stating, “It’s hard to pick a favorite out of this bundle since all the plugins serve their purpose extremely well.”
