Scheiner Takes a Shine to New Monitors

After decades with old favorites, the production legend makes a monitor move

Las Vegas, NV (February 28, 2019)—Elliot Scheiner, whose GRAMMY Awards wins include work with Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, Derek & the Dominos, and Beyoncé, switched to ATC SCM25A reference monitors several months ago after using them during his recording and mixing workshops at Berklee College of Music.

For nearly half a century, Scheiner has been recording and mixing, earning 27 Grammy nominations and eight Grammy wins for his efforts. In addition, Scheiner garnered two Emmy Awards and three TEC Award nominations and he is a TEC Hall of Fame inductee. His list of clients includes Toto, Paul Simon, BB King, Eagles, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Sting, Faith Hill, Foo Fighters and numerous others.

Scheiner holds an honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music, where he currently runs recording and mixing workshops. It was at Berklee that Scheiner began working with ATC SCM25A three-way monitors.

Scheiner heard ATCs over a decade ago and thought they sounded “incredible,” but that experience didn’t move him to make the jump. “You can get yourself to a place where you’re superstitious about the tools that brought you to that place,” he explained. “I used NS-10s for most of my life.

It was only after Scheiner repeatedly got in front of ATCs to do workshops at Berklee that he took a shine to them. “Every one of the rooms at Berklee has ATC monitors,” he said. “I fell in love with them. The ATCs gave me an honest representation of what I was recording and mixing. At the end of the day, I would bring the work home to my NS-10s to finish, but there was nothing left to do. The decisions I made with the ATCs stuck.”

Since he first got the ATC SCM25As a few months ago, Scheiner has completed work on forthcoming releases by jazz musicians Kandace Springs and New York Voices.

Scheiner is also a co-founder of METAlliance, a group of elite producers and engineers with the dual goals of mentoring through “In Session” events, and conveying its choices for hardware and software by shining a light on products worthy of consideration through a certification process and product reviews. Its mission is to promote the highest quality in the art and science of recording music. The METAlliance members share their experience, insights and knowledge every month in Pro Sound News and with The METAlliance Report.
