In the following video, Rob Rives discusses how you can improve your studio mixing with Mackie’s latest line of monitors and controllers. This video explores the Mackie MR524, with its rear-panel controls for adapting the speakers to different room configurations, as well as adding the MRS10 subwoofer to extend bass response. Rives also looks at the latest Mackie XR-Series monitors and investigates the latest Big Knob monitor controller / audio interface. The Big Knob offers an integrated audio interface for recording and playing back with a built-in microphone preamp and a USB return from your computer. Other features include monitor switching, zero latency monitoring, and a dedicated mono button for checking your mix’s mono compatibility. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com

In Part 1 of this three-part series, Justin Colletti, of Sonic Scoop, and Bob Mallory (producer and engineer for Avatar Studios and Paste magazine), introduce you to the materials and construction methods needed to make your own acoustic panels for a home studio. From framing to covering, they discuss the ins and outs of assembling the panels, and the common problems that can be addressed by using them. Listen to A/B comparisons of acoustic guitar and voice-over in the original untreated room, versus the room with the home-built acoustic panels. Later in the video, recordings of full-range pink noise are played through studio monitors in the untreated room, and then in the acoustically treated space. A real-time analyzer is shown for visual comparison of the different resulting frequency responses. Tune in to Parts 2 and 3 to explore monitoring, speakers, headphones, mic techniques, mic lockers, and more.
