    Great to see you are still using the M-Audio SBX10, i was so sad to read that it isn’t being sold anymore.

      Ya, it’s still being used to date! lol

      The Yamaha HS8S I think would be a similar comparison.. haven’t tried, though!

    Hi. I’ve just started making beats on my laptop and I was just wondering if you had any advice on best headphones to use.
    Your emails are great by the way, great information.

      Hey Joe!

      Thanks man, glad to hear the emails have been helpful!

      For headphones, I honestly haven’t tried tons. I’m currently using the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pros and they have been pretty good to me!

    Your midi keyboard the m audio axiom 49…
    Is it like the Mackie control Universal where u move the faders on ur hardware and it moves on ur DAW.. (FL studios 12.4)????

      Hey Robert!

      The M-Audio Axiom 49’s faders are not motorized – this is a big thing to watch out for if you want that real mixing console feel.

      Because the faders are manual, they don’t really allow you to mix with the sliders because if you go from one bank of faders (let’s say tracks 1-8) and adjust the levels, then go to the next bank (now 9-16), the digital faders may now be at different places than what’s actually on the Axiom 49 keyboard!

      Some tools that are available for this are the Mackie Control Universal, or the Behringer BCF2000 !
