Cushnan upgrades studio with ATC28 March 2014
Award-winning mix engineer Ruadhri Cushnan has been supplied with a pair of ATC SM25A studio monitors by leading European professional recording equipment supplier, Funky Junk.
Cushnan’s career began as an assistant engineer at Metropolis Studios before working as a freelancer.
He has worked as a programmer, writer and re-mixer and is now best known as a mix engineer, having worked on mixes for Ed Sheeran, Half Moon Run, The Maccabees, Nina Nesbitt and Foy Vance. He was also responsible for mixing Mumford & Son’s album Babel, for which he received a Grammy in 2013.
Cushnan explains: “I knew ATC had a great reputation as a monitor manufacturer and I’d specifically heard a few people talk favourably about the SM25s. When I mentioned to the Funky Junk guys that I needed to improve my monitors they suggested that I try them. I did, and they were amazing, so I decided to buy a pair.”
“I occasionally record some vocals and overdubs but 90% of my time is spent mixing,” he adds. “Obviously monitoring is critical and that’s why I needed to upgrade. I’m delighted with the ATC SM25s, which I’ve been using for a little while now. They really do have an incredible amount of detail and are very easy to listen to.”
