Hey people I need suggestions for cheap monitors for my MPC.
Basically (like most of you are probably doing) I plan to make the beat on my MPC and then record the signal from the outputs to my computer and then do the final mixing and effects on the computer with software. But I would like some decent speakers for my MPC as it's positioned relatively far away from my computer DAW (which right now is hooked up to a stereo system, soon to be hooked up to monitors). So I basically need speakers to listen to what I'm doing on the MPC. But I would like to be able to at least get a fair representation of what the signal might sound like so I can balance out the levels on the MPC mixer to provide a decent signal for my computer DAW to work with when tracking the beat.
They don't have to be anything special just something to help me give a decent signal for the computer that will help me do most of the actual mixing from Cubase. I would like to keep my budget around $200 per pair range for the MPC monitors. (Again they don't have to be anything special)
As a side note, I'm also looking for monitors for my computer DAW where I will do my actual mixing. If anyone can give suggestions here as well that would be helpful. I would like to keep my budget around $500 maybe a lil over for a pair. Right now I'm deciding between the Event TR8's, M-Audio Studiophile BX8a's, and the KRK RP-8's; for a room rougly 20' x 12'.
Anyone recommend anything? RIght now I'm thinking baout Alesis M1's (MK2) for pre-mix monitors.
