Yamaha NS-10M by guitarz
I have always wondered why so many studios had these little white speaker monitors.
A few years ago after listening to some I decided to make the jump and grab some second hand as a second speaker for my studio.
Attached them to a beefy Harman Kardon amp and started integrating them in my work flow.
At first I just used them to match the levels of vocals to the mix but pretty soon I found that I was using them more and more in relation to my second pair of monitors.
They have really detailed mids and it makes critical EQ changes in this band really easy to do and understand.
Whats more is that my mixes began to translate much better into the real world as I began trusting them and using them more and more.
I still need some other way of checking the bass response and the highs but I now I work most of the time on the NS10m and only change to the other monitors to check and fine tune these areas.
I sure hope they continue working for many years more as I dont think that for this price there is a comparable speaker.
For me the phrase "If it sounds good on the NS10m it will sound good anywhere" is as true as it gets. It really made a difference for me and to my mixing abilities.
