studio monitors

Trying to use my Active sub with active monitors

Hi all,
My power amp has blown, so I'll be getting some near gear, and was hoping to be able to use my sub in my new setup.
At the moment, it's
Audio interface (Which needs to be replaced as not working with Windows 10) ---> Power amp ----> Subwoofer (PSB Image subsonic 6) -> Tannoy reaveals PASSIVE monitors.

So I'm going to be changing the audio interface to most likely
Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 3rd Gen

First pair of mastering monitors


Hi everybody,

I'm looking to upgrade my monitors and looking for my first pair of mastering grade monitors. I've heard a few of the PMC & ATC's in other studios but my budget won't stretch to the larger models.
I've seen the PMC Result 6's - their entry level monitors, would they be suitable? Or should I save up for something else?
Thanks in advance for any advice

Monitors around 200 bucks each.

Hey ya'll I'm considering a pair of monitors mainly for messing around- writing, trying out my considerable collection of new plugs and vsti. I will probably get another set when i setup a studio room at this place and get my main system set-up. The only one's ive heard is the yammy's which I'm leaning towards. Im considering krk, but feel uneasy about dsp in my speakers (potential for added latency, additional conversion). I dont usually care for jbl but the online demo seemed reasonable watever that's worth. Khali has decent reviews.

Hi, I tried googling this, but every answer I'm reading is over my head. Buffer Size is something people advise changing. But for reference, I don't know what a buffer is nor do I know how to find my buffer settings. Someone else said to watch your CPU/HD meter, and I again don't know what those are, nor how to change them. Any help would be great, feel free to assume I don't know anything about the technical sides of recording.

Fishman Amp as Studio Monitor?



I'm new to the world of mixing and mastering and wanted to hear your thoughts on using Fishman Loudbox Mini amp with the settings turned off to mix and master. I understand that studio monitors that don't add anything to the mix are important to mix and master to the best result, and was wondering if the Fishman Loudbox Mini would be able to do that or if I really need to put more money into buying studio monitors...

I also have VIZIO - SmartCast 38" 5.1-Channel Soundbar System with Subwoofer if that's an option...

Thank you for your help!

headphone splitter and In ear monitors/earbuds questions

I'm shooting some music instructional videos in a residential home basement. Due to problems with mic bleed, I've convinced the subject to wear headphones for listening to himself, and his assistant musician during the shoot as opposed to speakers.

I have an Allen & Heath ZED10FX mixer. (guitar and piano are recorded direct, not mic'd) Since I need to get headphones for two people, I plan to connect the headphones output of the mixer to this unit I found on Amazon:
