If you're creating music that's designed to be played back on large club or PA systems, then being able to monitor those sub frequencies in the studio is essential. After all, those frequencies that you feel in your stomach form an extremely important part of modern music.
KRK subs are perfectly suited to partner a pair of KRK Rokit or VXT monitors, but, due to their adjustable crossovers, they can also be partnered with any other set of monitors to extend the bass response of your studio set-up.
Until the end of February 2014, you can make HUGE savings on KRK 12s and 12sHO subs, to allow you to monitor those frequencies that are going to make your belly vibrate! Get the KRK 12s for just £549 (usually £699)! Or, grab the KRK12sHO for just £999 (that saves £300 off the usual price of £1299)!
The Novation Ultranova is a powerful analogue-modelling synthesiser that is capable of producing a huge variety of different sounds from huge basses to floaty pads, electronic percussion and loads more. The Ultranova's sound engine is based on Novation's classic Supernova II synth, but it brings it right up to date with features such as wavetable synthesis, a software editor and a built-in 2-in, 4-out USB audio interface. Check it out in the video below!
For a limited time, you can grab a FREE pair of KRK KNS6400 headphones (worth £84) with every Ultranova! KNS6400s are closed back studio headphones that have very similar characteristics to KRKs popular studio monitors, which in my opinion push you to make big, in-your-face mixes; ideal for dance music!

We've recently received our first shipment of KRK's brand new third generation Rokit monitors! These new models retain the huge bass response that made the generation 2 monitors so popular, but they significantly improve their high-frequency response, allowing you to make more detailed mix decisions across the entire frequency range. However, if you ever want to revert back to the characteristic duller sound of the G2s, the G3s feature controls on the back that can be used for just this. As you get both high and low level controls on the rear, you can also refine the sound of the G3 monitors in order to customise them to your own listening environment by counteracting unwanted acoustic artefacts that your room might impose on your sound.
Oh, and one more thing! We've also put together some super money-saving bundles that include KRK RP G3 monitors so be sure to check them out!
KRK have just announced that their hugely popular range of Rokit monitors have been given a third generation re-design. Introducing KRK Rokit Powered G3 studio monitors...
Keeping with the iconic design of other KRK products, these generation 3 monitors retain that striking yellow driver with black cabinet, but are now built to sound better and be more accurate than their predecessors. Whilst KRK G2 speakers were extremely popular, especially with dance music producers and DJS, who were drawn to their BIG bass, their slightly duller high-end response made them less useful for producers of delicate acoustic music and other such genres. The third generation of KRK's Rokit monitors rectify this, with a new soft-dome tweeter, which can extend right up to 35Hz! This makes RP G3 speakers a much more versatile and accurate monitoring option whatever type of music you are working with. Don't worry though, they've still got that deep bass that made them so popular in the first place!
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.
KRK Rokit Powered active monitors are extremely popular with home and professional producers alike. Famed for their exceptional bass response, KRK RPs are particularly popular with dance music producers, who want to get their tracks in tip top condition for being heard through big systems on a dancefloor. However, they are also a perfect option for producers of any type of music who require great sound at a great price.
KRK RP monitors come in three different two-way models: the smallest is the RP5 (although it's still extremely bassy for its size), then there's the slightly larger and bassier RP6 and finally there's the beastly RP8.
For anyone wanting to bag themselves a set of professional KRK monitors, up until the end of August 2013, you can make awesome savings on KRK RP5, RP6 and RP8 active monitors so now is the time to buy if you've got a pair of these on your shopping list!
With more and more manufacturers entering the three-way speaker market, we thought that we'd write an article to bring you up to speed with these relatively misunderstood studio fixtures. What are the advantages of using a three-way speaker design? How do they differ from traditional speakers? We'll also look at some example three-way speakers on the current market so that hopefully by the time you've read this article, you'll be a mini-expert on the three-way phenomenon!
'TWO WAY' vs 'THREE-WAY' - WHAT DOES IT EVEN MEAN?
If you've ever looked at a two-way speaker side-by-side with a three-way speaker then you've probably already worked out the difference between them. In fact, you may have even worked it out from the names! A traditional two-way speaker is comprised of two drivers (which usually look like a shallow, indented circular cone with a small circular protruding dome in the middle), whereas a three-way speaker... (you guessed it!)... features three of these drivers.
