IsoAcoustics stands use a special patented technology to isolate your studio monitor speakers from the hard surface on which they would usually sit in order to give the truest sound possible. By suspending the speaker, energy transfer to nearby surfaces is reduced, which has the effect of creating a tighter bass and much improved stereo imaging. The stands have been receiving rave reviews from both pro- and home-studio owners for the way that they help get the most out of your monitors.
There's plenty more in the design of IsoAcoustics stands that we've not gone over yet as well, such as the way that they move with your speaker in order to keep the sound on-axis, and the way that you can customise the height and tilt in order to direct the tweeters directly at your ears. Find out more in the video below.
If you've experienced using effects pedals within your signal chain then you'll be well aware of how these otherwise enjoyable little boxes can sometimes have quite a negative effect on your tone when disengaged. An instrument's signal is a sensitive thing for sure & I'm here to tell you that anything & EVERYTHING placed between your guitar & amp will have an influence regardless of how insignificant it may seem. In a world where buzzwords such as 'True Bypass' etc. are often misunderstood & acted upon incorrectly, obtaining a pure & transparent tone can sometimes seem like a mystical & unattainable thing to all but the most experienced & obsessive of tone seekers. If you're interested in demystifying the jargon that surrounds this issue & coming to a sound understanding of the basic principles for obtaining the best tone possible then please do read on...

We all know that KRK make a superb range of studio speakers in the form of their Rokit and VXT range; heck, I was seduced by a pair of KRK RP8s when I was at university after hearing my friend producing bass-heavy tracks through his own set! However, their KNS range of headphones present an unexplored territory for me so I thought that I'd jump right on in and test them out to see how they fare.

Released in January this year, Biffy Clyro's 'Opposites' went on to become their first number one album, and what followed was naturally a huge tour, which saw the Scottish rock band play at Radio 1's Big Weekend, Coachella Festival 2013 and they've even headlined at the O2 arena in London. With them every step of the way were no less than four Nord Stage 2 HA88 stage pianos, chosen for their exceptional build quality and pristine sound.
Richard 'Gambler' Ingram was the man chosen to accompany Biffy on their tour as their keyboardist and in this brief interview, he explains why the Stage 2 HA88 was the natural keyboard of choice. CLICK HERE to read the interview.
