So far I’ve earned enough on AJ to invest in some great new software and gear for my studio - using my Envato earnings I’ve since bought a new DAW (moved to FL Studio 12), NI Komplete 10 and a MIDI keyboard, which have been excellent assets to my home studio and really bumped my production quality up a notch. It’s been great to finally have some spare money around to re-invest back into my music production so I can make even better music.
For a while I’ve been scraping by with my good 'ol Audio Technica M50 monitoring headphones, but I’m now considering getting some studio monitors soon to help with mixing (hey, I’ve managed without so far, but I hear they are one of the most valuable assets for music production so better go find out what I’ve been missing ).
That’s where you guys come in to the equation - can I get some recommendations for some reasonably-priced entry-level studio monitors (preferrably under $500)? - I’ve heard about the KRK Rokit G3, M-Audio BX5, Behringer Truth series, Presonus Eris, Mackie MR5 etc, but I want to hear all your opinions - which ones do you think are the best for the money?
Feel free to share which monitors you use, too - just bear in mind I probably won’t be able to afford them!
