    +1 for Focusrite!

    Re: studio monitors.

    So I just dug up this old thread because I'm ready to finally buy a pair of my own studio monitors. We've actually got a pair of KRK Rokits in the studio I work at but I'm not personally a fan of them because they really emphasise the low-end making them less than ideal for EQing. I will be using them for producing but I'm also going to be doing a lot mixing and mastering as well as part of my training.

    I'm looking for something with a relatively flat response that doesn't take up a huge amount of space. I've got a £1000 budget so price isn't really an issue here. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Re: studio monitors.

    To me, the idea of having as-close-as-possible-to-flat-range speakers can be a bit ridiculous. It's not about how good your monitors are, it's about how well you know them. You need to know what too much and too little sounds like on your monitors compared to other "trusted" systems (e.x: what too harsh sounds like on your speakers, even if it doesn't sound too harsh on your system)


    Get the monitors that sound best for your music, and learn how they sound. Also remember that any pair you try out will probably be well-worn-in, so don't get upset if they don't sound like them when you first ge them.
