Recording studio monitors


We offer a unique solution for studio monitors. Why offer a new solution? In our consulting work in recording studios, we've encountered problems with typical solutions. We decided it was time to offer a solution that could be offered to our studio clients.


The main problems we found were:


  • poor bass response even after extensive bass traps were installed
  • monitors with too much personality - lacking accuracy and in many cases, speakers with a personality that over-influences studio mix choices


What we need in a studio monitor


A good studio monitor is a work tool. Whilst some monitors may be chosen to represent certain speakers consumers will use, if you are using just one set of monitors to mix, you don't want to be compensating for the characteristics they introduce. In short, monitors must be accurate and avoid having a personality of their own.


Serious bass problems


Even after a lot of treatment, most studios still have serious bass problems. Although they are primarily caused by the limitations of mixing in a small room, two key sources of the problem also come from the monitors:


1. Monitors lacking adequate bass extension for the music being produced

2. A poor bass response related to the speaker location.


Our solution for those serious about getting a correct bass mix involves a separate bass module with DSP. In combination with our integration services, this can transform a system with +/- 15 dB bass response to performance as good as +/- 1.5 dB.








Our nearfield monitors


Our nearfield monitor design is an active speaker with DSP intelligence and we provide a setup service for unsurpassed accurate performance.


Our design starts with very high quality drive units. A 1" tweeter with a 5" midrange driver, both with exceptional performance. We bring them together with an active DSP crossover. Each unit is tested and the crossover is specific for each individual box and driver.


Further features include:

  • tweeter and mid placed to minimise diffraction effects
  • midwoofer placed in a sealed box for superior time domain response
  • box filled to eliminate typical box effects which also alter the frequency response
  • elimination of port side effects
  • port free design is better suited to integrating with the bass module
  • diffraction reducing baffle edge design
  • box lined with vibration reducing rubber for a very inert box
