Gary Atkins


Composer - Guitarist - Pianist

  • The monitors and mics by Prodipe get me the sound I’ve always been after.

     

    In my studio, I use the Prodipe Monitoring Pack (the Pro 10S subwoofer and the Pro 5 and Pro 8 speakers). This system allows me to monitor at low volumes without suffering from ear fatigue, and create the mixes I need. As Technology Coordinator of the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto), I use the same monitoring system and mics ( STC-3D MK2 LanenRSL Lanen and TT1 Lanen).

     

    At the Conservatory, we record everything from solo performances to full orchestras, and our Prodipe equipment is part of the tools we use to consistently deliver quality recordings.

     

    For live performances, I love the sound of the TT1, a truly quality dynamic mic. For softer, more velvety recordings, I always use the RSL Lanen ribbon mic."
