what does Bruce think of his new Studio?
got the V8s in place -- wiring really bogged me down, so I only
got to the monitors yesterday aft......
- what a difference! I liked the V8s before - but in my previous
environment, the bass tended to be slightly on the flabby side
- of course, I couldn't hear that then. But compared to what
I'm hearing now!!!!!!!!!!!
tested it with Steely Dan's TAN - imaging was crisp and precise,
bass response had depth and spaciousness, but never felt overpowering
or heavy. High-end response was focused and clear.
to test tones at various frequencies did show some response
anomalies as I moved about - but I presume this is normal since
I encountered similar variances when I listened to similar tones
in the monitoring room at a local mastering house a while back.
by the sound I got from listening to commercial stuff - I popped
on some of my previous mixes. There's no question my monitoring
room improved -- I heard stuff in the mixes that I wasn't hearing
before -- so much so in some cases that the mix would have changed
substantially. This is good - each time I've made an improvement
to my monitoring environment, I've heard enough difference that
lets me refine and improve my mixes. This new room is definitely
a huge improvement!!!
1 is the dark room - very little ambience and not very bright-sounding.
Studio 2 is the bright room - a lot of ambience and a bright,
woody sound. And the characteristics of Studio 3 (the booth)
is right in the middle of the other two. So I have a lot of
options has far as tracking environments. The Control Room is
on the bright side - which I prefer to a darker, more dampened
...the load-in is complete!
the studio sounds freakin' awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
think I'm going to really like working in there!!!!!!!!
