I need some advise from people who have experience mixing sub frequencies.
I currently use ADAM ARTist 5 Monitors for mixing my music. Unfortunately the only go down to 50hz, which is not low enough for Techno Production.
(I just again noticed that in a track Im working on, theres a peak at about 40hz, which i cant hear)
So as it seems I have two possibilities: getting new monitors which go down lower or buy a subwoofer. The problem is, I think my neighbors wont be too amused about a subwoofer. So heres my first question:
Are Monitors on the table less noticeable for the neighbors, then a subwoofer on the floor?
and another question:
How low does the frequency range have to reach to do proper Techno bass mixing? Does it have to be down to 30hz?
short version: because technically everything below 100Hz is mostly rumble and more in the “feel” range. Compressors will react to that and are working even when a sub is below 20Hz (which is inaudible). This is mostly unwanted as you are really after to control frequencies.
by the time Ive seen your post ive already read through the whole thread on Gearslutz and some reviews. but thanks anyways, the thread was really helpfull!
indeed i am so convinced that this might be the perfect solution that I bought it right away luckily found it as b-ware on Thomann
