Dangerous Music D-BOX Summing Mixer
D/A converters can greatly alter the sound of a source. Cheap converters can often greatly degrade the signal quality, making a track crunchy or muddy. Even expensive converters can sometimes be a problem for monitoring, because boutique and home hi-fi converters can make the material sound brighter or fatter than it actually is. When it comes to monitoring, what you want is a Mastering-Quality “Reference Monitoring Converter” like the one we have in the D-Box. Basically what this means is that the converter is designed with the same philosophy as all of our analog monitoring gear- accuracy, transparency and neutrality. This allows you to make informed decisions on what to do to your tracks, because you are hearing exactly what’s there.
The Dangerous Music D-BOX lets you hear the difference when angling the mic a half inch upward for more head voice or down for more body and feel the punch when carving out a 50Hz or 60Hz pocket in the bass track to make room for the kick.
