When it comes to monitoring, we always say to be prepared to spend the biggest part of your studio budget on them. There’s no point blowing it all on top synths and software if you’re going to listen to the end results through a couple of tin cans tied together with string.

That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. Focal, however, had other things in mind when it launched the Alpha range a couple of years back. The company took years of Focal speaker expertise and packed it into a much more affordable set of speakers – the range starts at just £400 for a pair of the smallest 50 monitors. Not only was the speaker successful, but it won MusicTech’s Monitor Of The Year at our 2015 Gear Of The Year awards.

About MusicTech

We’re very excited to reveal our new-look issue, which is on sale from Thursday 19th October, and we’ve gone the extra mile to give you something really special. Building up the courage to share your tracks over the internet is one thing, but performing them live is something else entirely. That’s where our cover feature, From Studio To Stage comes in. With 7-pages of expert advice from Matin Delaney you’ll be gig-ready in no time. Elsewhere in the mag we chat with Emre Ramazanoglu, who’s body of work includes several 2017 movie soundtracks as well as some of the biggest pop releases in recent years. Additionally we present our 10 tips to speed up your computer (without buying a new one), a retrospective on the Roland SH-101 and 6 reasons to buy more gear (as if you needed any). This and so much more in the new-look issue of MusicTech magazine.
