Just wondering what everyones favourite monitor speakers are for producing psytrance. I have always loved my Mackie MR6s, really inexpensive but they create a lovely balanced response. Curious what everyones is using, or wants to be using
I am organizing a psytrance party out in the woods and want to invest in a decent PA for this event. I have been doing some research on google and on different forums, but I feel I could really use some advice at this point. I did a rather small party (50-60 ppl) about a year ago also, for which I rented 2 Mackie SRM450. But no sub. Which eventually led to one speaker going to h.. in the push for more power... Lesson learned. This year I expect around 150 guests (200 max), which is the size of crowd I will be expecting for future events also. So the setting will be as follows: - A crowd of 200 people (300 max to be sure) - The event requires some walking distance on foot, making weight of equipment an important issue. - The only available power supply will be gas generators, so power consuption is definitely an important aspect as well. At this point I have two generators of 1000W each. - I have a nice budget, meaning I can afford to get some good gear, but ofc., there is a limit somewhere. _ This being a forest party pretty far north, the equipment need to be able to handle changing weather conditions and a worst case scenario of temperatures down to the freezing point. I have been looking at different systems around the net, and I thought I would go for 2 QSC k12 as tops, and the kSub to go with them, but some more research has put me in doubt that this is the right solution. Especially the sub has been getting some critique around the web, but I have also seen the speakers stated as lousy on the midrange sound along with them not really delivering the quality equivalent to their pricerange. The Mackies might be ok, but I have seen some comments around stating that they are likely to not last very long, which is really not a very appealing thought when ready to make an investment... Well, point is I am in the blue here... Advice is much appreciated!
Hi all! Gonna post my first post here. Want to share some experience and maybe ask some advices if someone know.. The subject is Portable Speaker Systems which are best for listening psytrance music. Topic dedicated not to headphones and home audio systems. Only portable format please, for traveling highly into the mountains, deeply into the forests and simply on the road. I think such devices can be useful sometimes because nature can be the greatest set'n'settin for any listening experience! Basic requirements: - backpack friendly size and weight. Better if it will be classical brick-like form.. dock stations and different exotic forms are not for traveling but for home listening. - 8 hours of playtime from the battery at least. AA rechargeable batteries possible too. - AUX input (i will use only it. Bluetooth is not so good in terms of battery use and sound quality. - 6watt + power. No need really high volumes.. but sound quality and balance needed. I've been choosing from quality models. There are tonns of very cheap made in china speakers with not good sound.. lets avoid them. Psytrance is a special type of music. I think speaker system (especially such portable) must be 2.0 channel without a subwoofer. Sub makes bass muddy and localized and it effects on balance clarity. I didnt saw any subwoofer system that plays psytrance ok. Don't need too much bass. Bass must be "tight", not muddy and overpowered. Sub bass must be good also. Detailed high and mids also important. (As for me im listening mostly deep mental darksy, often on high speed bpms and lots of frequences). If someone have such systems, can share some experience or needs an advice - welcome to discussion. In my next post i will tell something about my experiences with it.
