There is a very precise science to Studio Monitors and it might not be exactly what you expect. The assumption is that Studio Monitors sound great and make everything sound wonderful. This could not be further from the truth and indeed, truth is what counts. A good studio monitor tells you truth, be it good, bad or ugly. Unlike a Hifi speaker, they are designed to deliver an uncoloured sound, with little to no embellishments. As a sound engineer, your goal is make your Monitors sound nice and when they do, you can be assured that your mix will glow, everywhere else it is heard.
