How To Select Studio Monitors and Place Them

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 7 - 2012

Hey you! What’s great in music this week? I’m working diligently on music as I get closer to my one course ending. After this math class, it’s back to two courses and less to less music but Yaaay to more knowledge…:) A little reminder: When I skip a week of posting, I am deeply into two classes. My schedule is 5.5 weeks of two course then 5.5 weeks of one course. Please know that I work hard to leave you plenty information to check out if I’ll be away. I appreciate you holding me down by visiting, emailing, and commenting.

Wow!! I’ve been back on my trusty program Fl Studio 10. I am loving the mix I’ve been getting. One thing I’ve learned this week is to leave plenty headroom everywhere. I had been mixing way too loud and loosing all kinds of frequencies. I’ve also been setting my monitor volume lower while mixing to avoid ear fatigue. Fl Studio’s plugins are awesome as well…the parametric eq2 is very useful for all instruments! We’ll surely get into more post about how to use the included effects…they really work when you learn how to use them…

I have the KRK Rokit 5 monitors and the M-audio Studiophile Av 30 in use in my lab. I haven’t posted enough about monitors here. It is extremely important to be able to hear what your beats really sound like. Every set of monitors handles different frequencies in different ways. It’s good to get an idea of what monitors do and how to place them in your studio. I found two useful videos to share all about monitors, and placement:

Happy Beat Making To All!~
