Hey guys, so I have decided that I would like to use my Stomp with studio monitors. I've landed on pretty expensive ones so I have some saving up to do. I've been going through the necessary equipment and I've read that it is a bad idea to plug in two audio sources to the monitors at the same time (PC and HX Stomp). So I found two possible solutions buy a mixer (even the cheapest are pretty expensive and still look very cheap) or use the HX Stomp. I've also read that mixers can negatively affect the audio. HX Stomp seems like a good solution but I'm not sure. Isn't the Stomp going to break sooner if I use it for audio from my PC (around 10 hours a day) and leave it plugged in? It gets pretty warm (but actually doesn't get any hotter) so I don't know about long term use. I've read in the manual that it is not advisable to leave the power supply plugged in when not using it but I'm not sure if it is some "lawsuit protection" or actual advice. Do any of you use Helix as an audio source (PC and Helix) for their studio monitors? Thanks for answers!
Ok, so I have noticed that the right Analog Out channel on my Toneport KB37 puts out a little bit more than the left side. I tried switching the studio monitors (KRK Rokit 5s) and I tried switching cables and everything. I made the right output go to the left speaker to see if it was the right Analog Outputs fault, and it was. You can only tell when the master output is only up a notch, you will hear noise out of the speaker connected to the right analog out before you hear it from the left. You can't really tell once the volume is up a bit, but it still bothers me. Any suggestions?
Hey guys, I recently picked up the UX1 and have been really happy with it so far, running it through a pair of Samson reference headphones. However I'm looking at moving to a budget pair of studio monitor speakers and would like to know if anyone has had any success with a pair going for about $300? At the moment I'm looking at the Rokkit RP5 and the AudioEngine A5+. From the reviews I've read, the AudioEngine's have a little colouring, but lends themselves to rock and the likes as a result. Working out of a study which no doubt has a fair bit of swing, flat response isn't really on the cards. All I want is a pair of studio monitors that provide a fairly neutral representation of what I'm playing and overall, sound good with PodFarm. Thanks in advance
