Lives for gear

This is an interesting topic. Years ago when I was setting up my room, I put a 30 band stereo eq in-line with my monitors and did a real time analizer test to sound out the room and get a flat response out of my monitors , to compensate for the room....Awhile back, I had mentioned this on another forum, and caught all kinds of flack for doing this, as they said I should go for a straight out of the box sound, so as not to color my mixes, by having the eq in-line with the monitors. They said it would effect the ability of my mixes to transfer well to other systems, and I'd get a false sound out of my monitors to exactly what was happening in the box.

Anyhow, I removed the eq, as the adjustments I did make were so minor it had hardly any effect anyway.
