Ariel Rechtshaid is a Grammy Award-winning producer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. He is known and praised for his work with a diverse list of artists, including Adele, Haim, Sky Ferreira, Vampire Weekend, Charli XCX, Brandon Flowers, Madonna, Tobias Jesso Jr., Usher, Carly Rae Jepsen, Cass McCombs and Justin Bieber among many others. Rechtshaid co-wrote and produced Usher’s 2012 single, "Climax", which won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance. In 2014, he was nominated for a "Producer of the Year" Grammy and won for his production on Vampire Weekend's Modern Vampires of the City, which was awarded "Best Alternative Music Album."
Of Rechtshaid, The New Yorker asserts, "His sounds have an odd brightness, so that even intensely personal songs end up feeling buoyant, and—here is where the labels start writing checks—he is exceptionally good at getting the best out of singers. His approach differs from that of producers who make their name with a sound that watermarks each song and can risk overshadowing the vocalist," while Stereogum proclaims, "If anyone working right now can change the way pop music sounds, it’s Ariel Rechtshaid." Moreover, Pitchfork calls him, "...a go-to pop producer of the highest caliber."
Vampire Weekend,System of a Down,Haim, Adele, Charli XCX, Bad Religion,Sky Fereira, Active Child, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Limp Bizkit, Nine Inch Nails, Alanis Morrisette, Rage against the Machine, Audioslave and Weezer have all benefited from the production and engineering skills of Grammy winning engineer Dave Schiffman.Most recently Dave has been producing and mixing the new The Strumbella’s album “ Hope” and PUP’s new LP “ The Dream is Over”. Currently Dave and Ariel Rechtshaid are working on the new upcoming Haim album. Dave will play back examples from some of the varied projects he has worked on.

For the ultimate no-compromise pairing of speakers and amplifiers with PMC’s patented Advanced Transmission Line™ technology, music and audio professionals seek out PMC's active range, which uses state-of-the-art active crossovers and analogue or digital amplification to provide unrivaled tonal accuracy, resolution and dynamic range.
While it's hard to better a well-engineered set of active speakers, passive monitors, when designed with care and respect like PMC's range, will always outperform inferior active designs. Aimed at customers who prefer to define their own speaker/amplifier combination, PMC's passive speakers are just as uncompromising when it comes to quality.
PMC's subwoofers provide the very last word in extended bass response that maintains dynamics and depth, but from smaller speakers than many other similar products on the market, thanks to their advanced ATL™ design.
