Mixing engineer Pablo Araya reveals why selecting the right monitor controller will make or break a mix. Speaking from his ‘Audio Piranha’ recording studio, he shares three main issues to consider: signal path quality, flexibility with expandability, and build quality. Pablo chose the Dangerous Music MONITOR-ST because it satisfies all of his audio mixing criteria —including stereo and 5.1 surround mixing applications.
“With an extremely clean signal path I can monitor at both very low levels and very high levels and hear the exact same thing while I’m mixing. Having a stepped attenuator—the volume knob—allows me to set the levels exactly the same every time,” says Pablo.
