    With hundreds of millions of combined YouTube views for their signature celebrity-cameo, satire-laced singles, The Lonely Island’s latest album Turtleneck & Chain comes to life with the help of AKG microphones and JBL studio monitors. Whether recording demo tracks in the Saturday Night Live studio offices or providing additional overdubs to the tracks and mixing at New York City’s Downtown Music Studios, AKG C 414’s and JBL LSR6300 series studio monitors were on hand throughout the entire process.

    The band I regularly mix is based on the east coast of Florida, and we often find ourselves playing in clubs right on the beach. Unfortunately, in most of them, the stage is an afterthought or built for duos and trios, and most certainly not for a five-piece rock band with all of the gear, wedges and so on. While the stages are small, the clubs themselves usually are not, requiring a full-range house PA - with everything running through… View this story

    Mackie has announced a complete redesign of its line of affordable self-powered studio monitors – the MRmk2 Mackie reference monitors. The new monitors will be on display at the 2011 Winter NAMM show in the company’s demo room, 209A/B. MRmk2 studio monitors are outfitted with new professional transducers specifically designed to match their respective amplification. Both models employ a 1-inch neodymium magnet-driven soft dome tweeter featuring ferro-fluid cooling to help protect against power compression during wide dynamic playback. The 5.25-inch… View this story

    The popular indie rock band Modest Mouse has been relying on the EAW MicroWedge MW12 Stage Monitors for their current world tour.
