Apart from having a great sounding studio monitor speakers, to achieve a good balanced mix, it is important to have balanced acoustics of a room as well. Even the best speakers will sound different when placed in a different size and shape room.
To achieve a balanced room, you still need to ring-out the room to find out the response of the speakers and then adjust to correct it.
One way of achieving this outcome is to use Pink Noise to ring out the room and using Equalization to correct it. And the easiest method is by using Behringer’s Ultra-Curve Pro DEQ2496.
The Behringer’s Ultra-Curve Pro DEQ2496 is a digital (24bit/96Khz) equalizer, and dynamics processor that can be connected between the Audio Interface Studio Monitor Outputs and the Studio Monitors’ Inputs to digitally EQ the speakers.
In this example, I demonstrate how the DEQ2496 works and effects the speaker output to give me a flat response. I use Room Eq Wizard to test the results of before and after.
