Funky Junk, Europe's leading supplier of new and refurbished professional recording equipment and services, has supplied Award-winning Mix engineer Ruadhri Cushnan with a pair of ATC SM25A studio monitors.

"I knew ATC had a great reputation as a monitor manufacturer and I'd specifically heard a few people talk favourably about the SM25s," Ruadhri Cushnan says. "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."

The monitors have now been installed at Cushnan's project studio.

"I've had my own Mix space since 2007, but recently moved to my current space because it is slightly bigger and gives me more room to accommodate my ever expanding gear racks,"

Cushnan says. "Being near Funky Junk was a happy accident but one that has definitely worked out well. It's like having a big studio maintenance department right on the doorstep. The guys are very friendly and always happy to help – and they have a good coffee machine."

Ruadhri Cushnan started his career as an assistant engineer at Metropolis Studios before turning his hand to freelance projects. Having worked as a programmer, writer and re-mixer, Cushnan is now best known as a Mix engineer – an area he has been focusing on since 2007. Recent projects have included album and single 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.

Virtually all of Cushnan's mix projects are carried out at his project studio where he tends to mix 'in the box', but with lots of traditional analogue outboard as part of the workflow.

"I occasionally record some vocals and overdubs but 90% of my time is spent mixing," he explains. "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. I can mix on them at a good level for hours and not get tired out. When I first got them I put on some old favourite vinyls that I thought I knew well and, although it's a real cliché, it was like hearing them fresh for the first time. They are excellent speakers."

Cushnan adds that he was very happy with the help and advice Funky Junk's technical boffins gave him. "They have a great support system and are always very competitive on price," he says.

The success Ruadhri Cushnan enjoyed in 2012 and 2013 looks set to continue this year as he is already busy working on album projects for Luke Sital Singh (Parlophone) Saint Raymond (Warner/Asylum), King Charles (Universal/Republic), Foy Vance (Glassnote) and Nina Nesbitt.
