Tracking monitors

Discussion in 'Monitoring / Headphones' started by ineedtolearnhowtorecord, Nov 29, 2008.

  1. A good tracking monitor must be a big monitor?
    maybe a good quality PA speaker?
    What monitor works best for tracking?
    8" minimum studio monitors ?
    smaller studio monitors with sub?
    big PA speakers ?
     
  2. Do you mean tracking, or mixing, or both possibly?

    Why do you think it must be big, at least 8"?

    Sub? Depends ....probably wouldn't want one if you plan to have something mixable afterwords because you'll most likely make poor judgement on the bass frequencies.

    What size is your room, how loud do you want? do you track in the same room as your amp etc.?

    I track and mix with 5" monitors and it's plenty loud... in a bedroom sized room

    Monitors make you want to do something. It's important to know if you should do what they make you think you should do. It's possible to track or mix with any monitor that you understand.
