So you want to hear it loud?
Monitoring is a critical part of the recording process, if you cannot trust what your ears are telling you then we all may as well pack up and go home. We have a number of monitoring options right from the soffit mounted mains in the control room through to the iPod HiFi in the lounge. It is important to us that our recordings translate well onto all formats.
Some info on the main monitors :
The type 515 loudspeaker is the first of a series of monitor systems for use in control rooms where the cabinets will be visible. This bass reflex loudspeaker cabinet uses a 400mm (16') driver for LF, a 75mm soft dome for MF and a 25mm soft dome for HF. It is designed for critical monitoring in small to medium sized control rooms where the mix position is not more than 4m from the monitors where it will provide accurate low distortion monitoring of all SPL's up to 122dB peak per pair with music material, at 4m, in half space.
The cabinets are fully active and digitally controlled by a BSS 24bit 96kHz processor providing excellent performance with comprehensive room matching facilities and driver protection systems. The system may be driven with a stereo digital input. The amplifiers are by Chevin Research, type Q6. This is a 4 channel high performance amplifier and is used to power all current Exigy systems. It uses high frequency power supplies that provide excellent continuous output capability in a small lightweight package. Each channel gives 350W RMS into 8 ohms and 600W into 4 ohms. Two channels may be bridged to provide 1200W into 8 ohms. The amplifier boasts excellent distortion, noise and CMRR figures, comprehensive protection systems and has a fantastic reliability record in many years of studio use.
