PostSubject: What speakers should I get?   Wed Aug 25, 2010 9:02 am

What sound card should I get? USB or Firewire?

It's about 3a.m I work at 6a.m, but I really need to finish and upload this article hehe...

Well my friends, when you mix you have to make sure that you listen to all the frequencies with no distortion to the sound.

And the most important thing is to have a flat sound.

Don't use the 50$ super-duper Logitech speakers with the EQ-boost from Realtek driver. It may charm the sound when listening to a song but in mixing we need as flat as possible sound. ( I said that didn't I? )

Ok I got that, but why?

You must let the listeners choose to add bass and stuff if they want.
Your job is to create your sound and your sound must be real. If you turn EQ-boosts on or if you've bought speakers with a relative higher bass/mid/high response then your speakers are lying to you.

What you hear must be what you get.

If you follow the above rule you are fine.
Your speakers must be your partners, not your foes.

Aha I got the point. Could you please tell me what monitors should I get?

The price range and choices vary.
You should check the top list at thomann:

Many famous producers say that the "Yamaha ns-10" is the best pair that ever created. They say that they have the flattest sound and if your mix sounds good at this pair, then it sounds good everywhere.
It's pretty hard to find these monitors cause they are discontinued. But you can afford their "children" as they call them the "Yamaha HS80m".

I own these monitors and I have to say that I am more than happy.
Goodnight and let me know...

Since I've been looking at monitors, those have stood out more than any of the others I've been looking at. A lot of my friends that went to study music tech / sound tech have invested in getting a pair of these. KRK Roki GP6 I think they were called. For the price I don't think you can beat them. I still haven't had a chance to listen to anything through them though.
