Grammy award-winning producer Mark Ronson (pictured) has installed a pair of ATC SCM25A PRO three-way compact active loudspeakers in his new Munro Acoustics and Steve Durr designed studio space at London’s Tileyard Studios complex. “I was walking around other studios with Chris Walls from Munro so he could get a sense of what I liked. We went to British Grove, and I just couldn’t believe how amazing they sounded – so much punch, bite, and growl, then this really pristine top end,” said Ronson. “It was kind of a revelation, and I just thought, ‘There’s no way I’m going to get any other speakers other than those when I get into my space.’ I was sold on first listen.” London-based Funky Junk supplied the new ATC monitors. “They were very cool and easy to work with. They let me borrow a pair to test them out when I was at Avatar in New York, tracking some stuff for Paul McCartney’s new album,” Ronson added. “When I was starting out, I used whatever monitors I could afford, then I worked my way up to things like Genelecs and KRKs – all really nice, but they’ve got nothing on the ATCs, as far as I’m concerned. For the most part, I spend most of my time on the ATCs now. They give a great image of everything that’s going on, whether I’m tracking a live band or working on something with a massive 808 kick drum.”

Ronson, and Tileyard, have both made the final shortlists for the first Pro Sound Awards, to be held next month at the Ministry of Sound.
