Do you Really Need Monitors?
Studio monitors are speakers designed specifically to have a flat response. When listening to your recording, you want something with a neutral sound. This is vital to getting your mix right. If your speakers add colour or tone to the mix that doesn’t exist in the recording, you will compensate for that. This means that when people listen to your tracks they won’t necessarily hear what you want them to hear.
The size of the monitors makes a huge difference. Bigger is not always better. It is important that you get the right size monitors for the room that you are mixing in. If you are unsure about what size you need, speak to your salesman. They’ll be able to teach you about the placement and size that would be ideal for your purposes.
