Your presets sound muffled because lower frequencies are amplified in corners. Ideally, you want your monitors positioned approx. 1 meter away from the nearest wall, and definitely not in a corner.So I had to rearrange my Axe setup and moved my Presonnus Sceptre 8 monitors into a corner. Since i've done that, all my presets sound muffled. Do I need to go through each one to try to fix this or is there something I should do in my global settings?
I'll bet you are further away from them. It sounded good when they were right in your face, but now that you're further away, it sounds different. Make your adjustments (either sitting closer, or changing amp/cab stuff so it sounds good around where you sit/stand.)
If your doing it for more "rumble" for your home theater system sure, otherwise no, still a bad idea (as are subs for the most part with home monitor setups)Unless the speaker is a subwoofer...
Unless of course, you are mixing club music. Then you need to be able to accurately simulate the rumble your listeners are going to hear, so that you can properly compensate for it with EQ and track volume choices. Otherwise you can adjust conservatively and have people say it sounds bass starved in the club or go in the opposite direction and have a tubby mess happening in the club.The point of a studio sub is just to help reproduce the lows, not to make it sound like your in a club. Obviously if one is buying a sub for home theater or gaming purposes, knock yourself out, make that thing rumble if like, put in the corner etc, but do realize your not getting an accurate reproduction of your mix.
