WehbbaTop-Tier Techno Produced on ADAM A77X MonitorsADAM Users
Considered one of Brazil’s leading techno producers, Wehbba has been featured by some of the world’s premiere electronic music labels.
Wehbba [Rodolfo Abrao Wehba] has also produced remixes for some of the biggest names in electronic music, including Laurent Garnier, Danny Tenaglia and John Digweed. His work attracted the attention of Sony Pictures, who commissioned him to remix the soundtrack to “The Magnificent Seven”.
In creating a private studio space for his production process, Wehbba chose to build a cosy, creative set-up at home. “That can be both good and bad”, he freely admits. “I feel very connected with the whole setup while working, and this is a major requirement to enhance my workflow and keep the inspiration levels high.”

A cornerstone of his studio is his pair of ADAM Audio monitors. Wehbba first began using ADAM Audio speakers when he was living in Czech Republic. “I really fell in love with the sound of the ADAM S3X-V“, he remembers. “It had all of the characteristics I was looking for and was a major improvement on my previous set of studio monitors. I was especially impressed with the openness and clarity of the high frequencies.” Before settling down in Barcelona in 2015, he was forced to use different sets of speakers in different studios in South America, but adapting to his current ADAM A77X set-up was easy. “The sound is consistently solid all throughout the different ADAM monitors I’ve tried. I just like the natural character of the sound and the crossover design”, he says.
As an experienced producer, Wehbba makes specific and exacting demands of his monitoring system. His “ear”, after all, has been honed through countless hours spent creating, mixing and polishing some of the best techno around. “I think a perfect studio monitor is very natural and neutral but not boring. It won’t cause fatigue over long hours of working. But clarity and stereo image are the most important qualities for me.” His current A77X monitors, he finds, fit the bill in every respect.

Among the Wehbba projects currently in the works are new singles for Drumcode Records, as well as remixes for SCB and Reset Robot on Hotflush, for Drum N’ Bass project Culture Shock, on Andy C’s RAM Records imprint, and for Brazil’s Rock N’ Roll main icon Rita Lee.
