Queens Of The Stone Age have been busy in Josh Homme‘s Pink Duck Studios writing and producing their next album on Unity Audio Rock & Boulder Active Monitor Speakers.
Also featuring a return to the band drummer Dave Grohl, Mark Lanegan from the earlier Rated ‘R’ album and Bassist Nick Oliveri.
Song Writers, Producers, Engineers usually try various models and manufacturers when it come to their choice of studio monitor speakers before they decide. Varying factors come into play, mostly how the speakers perform in the artists own studio environment including sound clarity and how mixes translate outside of the studio on other speaker systems.
Josh Homme expains his choice of Unity Rocks & Boulders:
“The Unity Audio Rock Studio Monitors have been a fantastic addition to Pink Duck Studios. The imaging is fantastic. They have a bottom end that belies their size & a smooth modern top. The result is true detail with a wide depth of field and I don’t get any surprises when I take mixes out of the studio. Hell, mixes sounds the same at home and in the car, just like they did in the studio on the Rocks. That kind of consistency and accuracy is all I care about.”
“As for the Boulders… They’re the exact speaker I needed. The power & the punch of a large studio main, stuffed in cabinets the size of the modern, real world recording studio. That big bottom end you’d expect, but not at the expense of precious midrange. Accurate details abound.”
