Marc Bakos Installs PMC6 XBD System

Marc Bakos, co-founder of audio software company Cleanfeed, has improved the accuracy of the monitoring in his London studio by installing a PMC6 XBD system.

The new monitors were supplied by pro audio specialist and PMC partner SX Pro as a replacement for Bakos' older PMC TB2S+ system. They were chosen for their transparency and ability to faithfully reproduce the entire audio spectrum.

"I believe I was one of the very first in the UK to install these monitors," Bakos said. "I initially demo-ed a pair of PMC6's from SX Pro and helped with some beta testing. I eventually decided to invest in my own pair, along with their associated PMC8 SUBS, because I was thoroughly impressed by them."

Bakos added that, throughout his career, he has always trusted PMC speakers for their exceptional sound quality.

"PMC speakers are a crucial tool in the work I do as they allow me to accurately judge sound quality and ensure the best possible results," he said. "I often spend long hours in my studio and that’s where the quality of these monitors really shows. I like being able hear every detail in a piece of music and I also appreciate that PMC monitors are non-fatiguing, even at slightly loud levels, which enables me to work for longer."

Bakos founded Cleanfeed in 2014 with his business partner Mark Hills. This web-based software enables people to connect and record live with anyone in the world, using nothing more complicated than just a browser. Cleanfeed’s effectiveness and simplicity has led to it being widely adopted by audio professionals as the 'go-to' tool for sending and recording live broadcast quality audio. Indeed, it’s success was noted by the broadcast industry in 2022 when Marc and Mark were awarded a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering, Science & Technology.

In recent years Bakos has also been working with various radio stations as a technical consultant. One such project led to him helping one of the largest regional radio stations in the UK to transition to a fully IP based transmission chain.

"I was the first to fully virtualize a multi station radio transmission network. From the high-density audio processing right through to the antenna. I'm incredibly proud of this achievement," he said.

Bakos' studio in London is the hub of all his activities, including development work for Cleanfeed and mixing and producing music.
"When you are creating audio tools like Cleanfeed for discerning industry professionals, it is really important that the quality of your monitoring complements the quality of the tools you are developing," he said. "I now have the ideal system and I couldn’t be happier with its performance."
