Hi, I have my own small studio (PT24 5.1/88824/) and where I live it's a excellent option because of the price range and the advantages it gave me over other studios in the area. Right now i'm doing SORT of Mastering, i mean I'm not a mastering engineer but here there are no options around so I took the advantage and I'm almost the only option around. The thing is that obviously my studio is not prepared for mastering so recently I have trouble with some songs which had very bad POPS on the voice and I don't notice it at first hand but later when i barely notice it it was horrible. I had Tannoy reveal(passive) and this monitors go down from 60 Hz to nowhere........I don't know what happen down there cause I can't listen to it......so I have twoquestions: 1) I'm using a hipass filter(20-30 Hz / -18 db McDsp Filter)) on the material I haven't Track myself and even some material I track myself but I know there could be some trouble down there.......Is this right? Am i loosing something doing this cut al 30 HZ???? 2) I don't pretend to be a mastering engineer wiyh my equipment but i have no option......Is there a pair of nearfield monitors on the Us$1.000= range price that worth?? Is it better to change my monitors or Fixed my room ??? Anyway thank you...... Barbacoa.
