Who here produces or mixes on 5 inch monitors?


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure it directly related to monitor size... as much as the difference in the monitors themselves. IMO - different monitors will produce different results, it's important to listen to more than one set of "quality" speakers. Most often fixing a "problem" on one, helps the tone in the other and vice versa. You will never make the two sound the same, but you can make both sound great - and that's the secret!

The biggest "monitor" affecting the fidelity of the listening is the room. I do mix with 5" because my home studio is a perfect and small cube, so everything above that speaker size would mean a boomy fest, even with the acoustic correction on the walls.


Size of the speakers is just one of the many variables in the equation...
