I Promise You, These Will Win You A Grammy!
Ok, first let me say this, as an Indepedent Christian recording artist, who writes, records, mixes & masters my own music. I had to lear the hard way. My first CD was recorded, mixed & mastered using big Event Asp8's...Wrong! This was the biggest misatke of my music career. First of all, you mix and master with small "5-inch monitors..Period! Second, you mix and master with the volume low, this allows you to hear everything, I bought these monitors at the recommendation of my sweetwater rep. Brian Vandekeer. My God, this man knows his stuff! After listen to my CD througo the Yamaha HS50M's I wanted to cry, because I could hear how bad my CD had been mixed & mastered! Yes, I screwed up. Fisrt by not using a smaller nearfeld monitor to mix my songs with, second by not listening to Brian in the first place. He told me not mix with big boomy monitors, but I didn't listen. After seeing a friend go to the Grammys this year and almost getting nominated because his CD was really good, I made the decision to get it right on my new CD, I bought the HS50M's and my God, man you know these thing are pro monitors. I hear so many things unlike before. I can tell when the signal is just toloud and distored, unlike before. I can hear the stereo imaging so much better. I promise you, if your like me and your working on your CD and you want it to have that "Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Adele & Katy Perry" Sound in terms of the mix and the proper levels,You gotta get these moititors. The HS50M's tell you the absolute truht about your song, if you recorded the signal to loud or to low, if your bass is to loud and distorted. Most importantly, if the mix is not right. Having a baddly mixed song is like having a nice slice of chocolate cake, with a warm, spolied glass of milk....yUk! It's just nasty, it dosen't go well you know what I mean? So If your working on your own project and you want it to rival, the "Adele's & The Bruno Mar's & The Katy Perry's and so on, you better...better get these monitors! I Promise you, these will help you win a Grammy.
