monitors

  1. Music: Recording Studio
    Those of you crazies who listen to my music will have noticed that my mixes have a bad tendency to be bass-heavy. Here is the culprit: I've used these M-Audio BX8 monitors since about 2005. You'd think that monitors with 8" drivers would have plenty of bass response, right? You'd be wrong. At...

    This has been an ongoing project for a while. These are my beloved JBL L220s from 1972. I've had them for fucking ever, tremendous amount of sentimental value, My Grandpa gave me them when I was 13 when he went 5.1, and he bought them directly from the JBL showroom in '72. They actually predate...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I just picked up a Zoom G3N that I need to hook up to my amp. I need a cable. I was thinking...Kirlin,Livewire or maybe even Mogami. So my question is, will these better cables give me a higher quality of sound???? I know the better cables will eliminate line interference but what about the...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    Looking over the next few months to try and get a home studio setup going, and trying to sort out what monitors to go with. Primarily looking at the Kali lp6/lp8, Yamaha hs5/hs7/hs8, or Adam t5v/t7v (perhaps a7x’s if I can find them at a lower price). Those with experience with these monitors...
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    getting to a point with one of my projects where we're looking at investing in some in-ear monitors for the band (3 piece). I know that Shure and other big names are kinda the go to, but has anyone tried any budget options that give bang for the buck? quick amazon search shows a ton of things...
  6. Music: Recording Studio
    Since I'm going to be getting my new computer up and running this week, I plan on loading it with Reaper so I can finally start recording (I've got a keyboard to handle MIDI for drums, and a bass, so all bases covered for instruments) and I'm curious what the consensus is for the two. I'm 99%...

    I was looking for some new monitors to replace my Event TR6's. I was getting O.K. mixes with the Events, but GAS. I was looking at Dynaudio BM5's, Yamaha HS7's and those Presonus Septors, as well as the Focal Alpha 65's I eventually went with. I scored them used off Reverb for $600. Definitely...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    EDIT: I complained about it being low volume... But then our professional tour monitoring mixing enginner came home from work (also known as my girlfriend) and quickly noticed I had to raise the output of my audio interface :lol: Oh well. I will then keep it instead of returning. There's some...

  10. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Selling a pair of lightly-used (about 20 - 30hrs of actual usage) Yamaha HS8's. They're in mint condition with no cosmetic blems or damage whatsoever. I ordered these brand new from Musician's Friend in April 2014. The reason I'm selling them is because they're simply too large for my tiny music...
  11. Music: Recording Studio
    Considering a pair for nearfield purposes but I have a small room. I will be moving to a bigger room in the future. Just wondering if anyone has any and what their experiences are with them? Cheers
  12. Music: Recording Studio
    I am looking at these, specifically because A. I want a bigger set of monitors, and B. I get a hefty discount on these, and I'm of course quite cheap. :D But if they suck, they suck. Discounts aren't enough to overcome that. :rofl:
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    Got the vocal tracks sent in yesterday so started puzzeling everything together. Pretty simple standards compared to the rest of the forum really lol It didn't really help that my main headphones decided to crap out a few days back so i just used what was available. In any case i got nice tax...

    So, apple has historically had significantly better external display support than windows. This is apparently not so true these days >.< On a brand new 13" mbp, in windows, I can daisy chain several Dell U2415H monitors over a single mdp connection on displayport 1.2 mode. In mac, I can't even...
  15. Music: Recording Studio
    A Mackie Big Knob that is. Was doing some tracking yesterday with the vocalist in my new band and the headache or having to send everything to a separate bus to output to 7-8 for headphone monitoring and having to manually fuck with everything made me pine for the days of having a Control 24...
  16. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Absolutely hate to do this, but my new music space is smaller than my old music space and I only got to enjoy these for a couple of months before I had to pack up and start relocating to Portland. They are 8" studio monitors with a discrete 4" midrange driver and a 1" tweeter (60W+18W+18W). I...
  17. Music: Recording Studio
    Yup, picked me up a pair of HR824's today. Only reason I bought them is the price (we're talking stupid cheap) but I figured they would be ideal as an upgrade from the Eris E8's I have as I am already familiar with what they sound like from past experience with them. Just like the NS10's, you...

    We had been apart for so long I forgot what it was like to listen to music for real. Video, because I don't have a wide enough lens to capture them in one shot.
  19. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Got a pair of Yamaha HS5's in a gear trade with a customer and they're not something I have use for as I use a pair of Presonus E8's. I have them listed on Gumtree and soon eBay for $350 but I'll offer them for $300 plus shipping to anyone on the board. Obviously wouldn't be worth sending...
  20. Music: Recording Studio
    Hey guys I'm working on this song: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27042583/Dead%20Bread%20-%20The%20Silent%20Echoes%20of%20Abandonment2.mp3 Instruments are 'live' (+10% sample on kick). This is my first mix on the new monitors. I'm not used to them and my ears are tired at the moment -...
