Hey guys, which Studio Monitors can you recommend? Currently I am using the Samson 65 Resolv A, but they are definetely sucking, especially for electronic music. I also own Alesis Studio Monitor Two, they sound awesome, but unfortunately they are too huge for my new tiny studio. Any recommendations?
Aloha and +1.
Many of the commercial studios in which I have worked over the years seem to have had three mainstays as monitors.
3-Lil auratone boxes
4-Then came the white woofer’d (Yamahas ns10s)
With my own studio my axes of choice are
3-Any super cheap boom box.
my new tiny studio.
My recommendation: Go with the Gen’s
Anything Focal. Expensive, I know, but totally worth it.
Even tho’ there would be some probs and trade offs,
in a previous post http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=198&t=44727&hilit=+monitors
I said that I wish there was an on-line ‘paid’ site where a user could;
1-Choose a pair (or one) of monitors.
2-Upload a song.
3-Hear the song played back (with mics of your choice)
while the monitors are in an anechoic chamber.
Yes I know this is the internet so things might sound a lil weird (bandwidth issues etc)
and you could never be sure of the sound etc
but I contend that a site like that would be useful and profitable to some.
The ‘end’ sound would still be coming from the user’s monitors yes.
But if a user auditioned a significant number of different monitors, one could at least get
a ‘reference’ of what is out there.
Frought with audio probs yes. But certainly a site like that would beat what we have now; which is nada.
And as the internet improves, something like this may one day become an option.
