Total Apego bananas in the studio with the S3HADAM Users
Swedish, chart-topping EDM production duo “Total Ape” praise the S3H’s full high-detailed sound.
Stockholm-based producers Pär Almkvist and August Vinberg are the faces behind the masked EDM outfit, Total Ape. Having achieved success with the choreographed video-single “Young Gods“, which has over 1.4 million views on YouTube, the duo has also worked alongside the likes of Iggy Azalea, Karol G, and other international star talents. Working out of their Stockholm studio, the duo credit the ADAM Audio S3H for their big production sound. “For us, the ADAM Audio S3H is one of the best speakers out there,” they state about the speaker’s quality.
Emerging from different musical backgrounds, the two came together to build upon their experience making pop music. Having quickly forged their simian-pseudonyms they quickly took up residence in the city’s Westwood Music studio complex, looking for the perfect audio accompaniment for their audio.
When it came to choosing a monitoring setup, Almkvist and Vinberg needed something that could work well with all types of music and that had a high level of detail. “They needed to have a full sound too, so you don’t have to blast your ears out,” they explained.
“We think they are the perfect mix of flat honest speakers you can mix and rely on, and speakers you can actually listen to and enjoy music with […]”
The duo eventually opted to work with the ADAM Audio S3H thanks to its high quality, and detailed precise sound. “We think they are the perfect mix of flat honest speakers you can mix and rely on, and speakers you can actually listen to and enjoy music with,” they say about their decision.
For Total Ape, it’s all about reliability and balance. Sometimes they need a hard-hitting speaker with a powerful low-end to give them the right amount of energy, and sometimes they just need an honest sound that allows them to just create a great ‘ape’ mix. “We also love the DSP and the option to adjust the sound according to the preference and occasion.”
