Sony EMI Publishing Composer
As a composer and a producer, I always listen closely for the blend of instruments in a song mix. Is there space?Is there depth? Is there dimension? How do the frequencies and timbre of each instrument combine to mix melody and harmony, and become great recordings? These ideas are at the heart of any top-grade recording and music production.
I was happy to find out that the BenQ treVolo handles these elements flawlessly, based on a wide variety of playback, while covering the different music genres in my collection.
