  1. I can't really move the computer since it's my dad's. The aka k44 are super bad for any kind of EQing. I've tried but always end up with too much treble or bass because it puts so much bass in not much treble. http://therecordingrevolution.com/2014/12/15/3-simple-strategies-for-mixing-on-headphones/ Graham from the recording revolution says you can mix on headphones if u have something to switch to. The speakers on my mac are actually decent and not at all like crappy phone/laptop speakers. I understand that it won't be nearly as good as monitors but I really don't think that is an option yet. In the future, I am planning on getting a proper space but i'm still in high school recording my band.
  2. Hello everyone, Thinking of purchasing the AKG q701 headphones but then I realised that people were saying that you need an amplifier. I do have a Focusrite Scarlette 2i2 gen 2 Interface that has a headphone output although it has complaints about it being weak. I really don't want to buy an amplifier if possible and I would rather change headphones that buy one. Is the 2i2 going to be good enough to support the q701 or am i being an idiot? If anyone has any suggestions on headphones, please let me know. I am trying to record (I have some crappy closed back AKG k44 for recording so no bleed ) and "Mix" the songs. I just need something that has an accurate frequency response. I know that people are going to say that I shouldn't mix on headphones but i have no choice. The is no room to put monitors, they are more expensive and also the room is not treated and it would be pointless to use monitors in a weird shaped room with no acoustic treatment. Thanks! I really do need something to try and mix on because I am recording my band in a couple of weeks!
  3. But the 1st gen has serious clipping problems. I'm just wondering if the second does as well.
  4. Went into the guitar shop and recommended the Stein-burg UR22. Anyone have any comments?
  5. Thanks! I'm not recording to drums (yet. hopefully eventually ) so 2 inputs is defiantly enough incase i want to do 2 guitars or guitar and singing at the same time.
  6. Hey everybody! I'm thinking of purchasing a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 for recording my guitar directly into the mac. I'm planning on using some amp simulators (because i'm a young bedroom recorder who can't get a real amp and cab) and stuff like that for now and was wondering what anyone thinks and if anyone uses it. Does it have low noise? Good quality? Any other suggestions? Low budget and the 2i2 looks like it has good reviews. Any feedback or links to examples or anything would be greatly appreciated. \m/ LocalScrub P:S first time posting anything so hopefully I've done this right
