While there was nothing wrong with the PolkAudio monitors I had been using for years (in fact they sound great for final playback), I heard a pair of these KRK Rokit monitors at a friend’s voice-over studio and fell in love with them. Found this pretty blue pair of RP6 G2’s at Guitar Center a little while ago and they sound amazing. I can definitely hear everything in my mix now, and holy cow do these things have some power! 🙂
I’m also trying to make the switch from Adobe Audition to PreSonus Studio Live… although Audition is much more straight-forward and easier to work with for single mono voice-over tracks. Studio Live has some neat stuff in it and will be great for multi-track projects that I play guitar and sing on, however there appears to be a bit of learning and practice ahead to get the most out of it.
It is really feeling comfortable in this room lately; for voice acting AND music recording! I just walk in here and feel ready to be productive. 🙂
