It Won't Sound Right If You Don't Hear It Right: Studio Acoustics, Monitoring & Critical Listening

Hugh Robjohns, Technical Editor, Sound on Sound - Cambridge, UK
Paul White

The monitoring environment acoustics and the monitoring loudspeakers are critical links in every music production chain. Any weaknesses impact negatively not only on the overall quality of mixes, but also on the confidence and ability of the user to assess and process audio material efficiently and effectively. This workshop examines the theoretical requirements and practical optimization of high-quality monitoring systems for home and project studios, drawing on the author’s experiences in the “Studio SOS” series published in Sound On Sound magazine. It will also explore choosing new monitoring loudspeakers, optimizing control room acoustics, and honing critical listening skills.
