At AES last weekend I attended the Neumann press conference where they introduced their new product line. Neumann, incredibly well known for their stellar microphones have finally come out with their own line of reference monitors.
And what great monitors they are too. The Neumann KH120 look a little small to compete in the bass department but let me tell you: They had other similarly sized monitors running for their money. Great bass response and awesome clarity. I heard them A/B'd with and without a sub-woofer and believe me if you want but I felt like they didn't really need more bass. Small but full range? Crazy!
And here's the kicker. The moment that had the journalists gasping. Going price on release? $1,500. For a pair!
So if you are in the market for a small quality monitor then Neumann might have something that you might be interested in.
If there is one incredible thing I've heard at AES 2010 it's VOVOX Cables.
I sat down with the founder, who took a different strategy to creating cables; not from the electrical engineering standpoint but the material science standpoint. And guess what? These cables really make a difference. I could easily hear the difference in sound from one to the other.
I sat down in a simple A/B testing booth listening to some Kings of Leon back and forth between the two speakers, one pair with Vovox, one without them. It's easy to be skeptical of cables, since you would always assume there is a certain limit or threshold to the quality. But I couldn't believe my ears. I've never heard a cable be able to make a song sound deeper and more clear. The high mid distortion was gone and the only thing that was left was a really great song played through amazing speakers upheld by a clear over the top quality of the cables.
Don't take my word for it. Check out their website or if you are at AES just hear it for yourself.

Good vocal recording microphones are a necessary part of any studio situation, whether you're in a huge commercial facility or a small home recording studio. But a budget home studio doesn't have the luxury to splurge on microphones like their wealthier counterparts.

With recording studio rates being so expensive, deciding to go to a professional recording studio involves a lot of money decisions. However, you get what you pay for, since professional studios usually have a history of getting the job done and making the client sound good. So in a way, going to a professional recording studio isn't as bad of an investment if you are really serious about your music. Sure, it can be much more expensive than going to a home recording studio, but you can(usually) expect extremely professional results.

Let's face it, you need some music recording equipment if you want to set up your home recording studio. If you have the money you might be able to get your hands on the most professional audio equipment out there, but if you are on a budget you might need to look at some cheaper options.
The first order of business when creating your home recording studio is to deal with the low end. Using bass traps is paramount to your recording studio design since bass trapping takes care of the low frequencies and leaves you with a better sounding home studio.
