ADAM Audio has teamed up with Belgian producer Chuki Beats to give away a professional 2.1 studio monitor system consisting of a pair of T7V active monitor speakers and T10S subwoofer. Chuki’s chops have anchored top R&B and hip-hop productions across Europe, including the viral Harry Potter-themed hit “Black Magic” by the artist Yung Mavu. Chuki also got pair of ADAM Audio A77X active monitors for this studio, and was so impressed that he plans to showcase them on his YouTube page, where his fun and expert tutorials have captivated over 230,000 subscribers.
"We’re setting up a new studio here in Brussels, and I've been able to use the A77X for a couple of weeks as of right now,” says Chuki Beats. “Even in that amount of time, I’ve said to myself, wow. These are my new standard for mixing — they are a major upgrade from what I was using before.”
Part of what makes them such a step up is the folded-ribbon design of ADAM’s signature X-ART tweeter, which Chuki — whose early training in Spanish classical guitar honed his ear for music — credits for improved detail. “The high end and midrange are much clearer,” he recounts. “For example, let’s say I have two or three tracks of vocals. On my previous speakers, it was like they were all squished together. With the A77Xs, my ears can focus in on each vocal even if they’re playing at the same time in a mix.”
Chuki is just as pleased with the opposite end of the frequency response. “Of course, everyone loves sub-bass,” he notes, “and the lows of the A77X are much more — let me say articulate — than my old monitors, which sound muddy by comparison.” This is because the A77X’s dual woofers take a tag-team approach: Both go down to 38Hz, but one rolls off at 400Hz while the other extends into the midrange up to 3000Hz. This provides plenty of punch while avoiding the phase issues that contribute to murky low-mids. “Mix decisions I’ve made about my bass have translated very well to other systems, even without the use of a subwoofer,” he adds.
The Chuki Beast ADAM Audio T Series giveaway starts on March 25 and runs through May 31 at 5pm. The T series offers ADAM Audio’s legendary performance and sonic accuracy at a surprisingly affordable price point, which is why Chuki is choosing to give them away one lucky fan. “Check out the video of my new studio, which features the A77X and the T7V-T10S giveaway,” he explains. “My previous studio monitors, let’s say they’re a popular brand among bedroom producers, probably because they’re loud and bassy. If you really want to get serious about sounding better, I highly recommend upgrading your monitors and subs to ADAM Audio. And enter the contest as well!”
