Hey everyone!

Very sorry for the long message. I really want to explain my situation clearly so you guys can help me :)

So, I’m planning to get back to music composing and return to my AudioJungle privileges as an author, but I’d like to boost my quality of music first of all by enhancing the equipment I was previously using. Despite the fact that I’m on a budget, I’m looking to get new, studio-quality headphones, microphone, etc… but my first choice of equipment is new studio monitors.

That’s where I am a bit uncertain because I had previously read a lot of awesome reviews on KRK Rokit monitors, and this series of monitors was what I was going for: http://www.krksys.com/krk-studio-monitor-speakers/rokit/rokit-8.html

But this week, when I contacted what is regarded as Ghana’s biggest music equipment shop, one of the shop’s top attendant explained to me that KRK Rokit monitors were easy to disappoint, and the shop had received bad reviews from some music producers, who complained that the sound produced by the KRK monitors wasn’t as neutral as they had expected it to be. The shop eventually stopped selling KRK monitors.

He then recommended that I try their new partner’s products, which happens to be Mackie monitors. He says they will soon be having MRmk3 Series monitors, and that whilst there were a lot of factors that could be taken into consideration to review their performance, they were basically excellent monitors.

I need your help guys… In Ghana, shipping products can be a tough task, so the only option left for me now is primarily Mackie monitors, including MR8 and MR5 monitors. Should I go for them? Do you have experience with Mackie monitors? Can you tell me the advantages/disadvantages of KRK Rokit monitors and Mackie MR8/MR5 monitors?

I’m going to be using them in a room probably 5×5 x 3.5 meters in dimension. Please advise me! THANKS!

Hi , my friend runs a small pro studio and he uses Mackie monitors(the big ones with 10 or 12 inch drivers). All i can say is to me they sound amazing.

Hey,

@Patchesoft: Authors earning is different than buyers deposits and it won’t expire… :)

Cheers,
Iman
Aaahhh… there’s the confusion. Thanks for clarifying! :)

Hi, I use Swift,its rock solid,plus insured against any loss. It does cost 35 dollars for 1 transfer,but a small price for peace of mind. (swift is the standard international bank transfer)

Boy, I never had such a quiet time.I know its Xmas but last year i had about ten for the same period.Is this a new trend on Audiojungle.

With 340 items and over 1,100 sales it’s really strange to have not a single sale for 3 weeks. :( I’m sorry!

My last sale was $14 12 days ago. :(
Yep but i have noticed that authors on my page have 0 or very low sales.My sales year on year have been down,but i guess this is due to new authors plus 150.000 tracks. When i joined AJ there were 14000 music tracks,oh happy days.
So, what does it mean? Is this the end for all newcomers who are not already Top Authors? It’s quite scary.

No I do not think so, but we might have to put up with lower sales next year(apart from top authors) Lets see how January goes.
