Monitors are better than they've ever been — but they're still the weakest link in most studios. We trace the technology from its roots in the 1930s, and find out whether there's a DSP revolution on the way.
Genelec's latest monitor is a flexible beast, designed for the large multi-speaker setups that are needed in VR and immersive audio. But does this versatility come at the expense of its usefulness for conventional music mixing?
There are many decisions to be made when choosing a monitoring system. Infinite baffle, reflex, or transmission line? Active, powered, or passive? Bi-wired or bi-amped? We help you find the answers you need.
