Hello - I'm a guitarist/home recordist from Minnesota. Need some monitor advice and I'm sure this same question has been asked a million times before. But I'm a rookie and am hoping those who are more wise than I on this forum can indulge me.
My studio consists of a small basemen
t room (8X10 feet). I've treated this small box acoutically to the best of my ability. It's reasonably dead, but not totally.
I have a cassette-based four track (please don't laugh, I'm cash strapped), a Mackie mixer and Samson power amp. I "mix" thorugh a pair of Polk audio high fi speakers (I realize this is wrong, but again, very little cash)
I want to buy a set of real studio monitors and can't spend very much. I found a pair of Alesis monitor 1
mk2's at American Musical Supply for $149 (US) they are a scratch and dent deal. Seems like a good deal and I'm wondering if any you have opinions on these monitors and whether you think adding real monitors would make any difference given the bad mixing environment I have.
Thanks for helping our a rookie in need!
