Dangerous Music Source Monitor Controller

The Dangerous Music Source provides one of the most crucial bridges in both the tracking and mixing process: the link between the engineer’s ears and the music. In each of the aforementioned scenarios, locating sweet spots, panning placement, and balancing kick and bass are all entirely dependent on accurate listening. 

Source contains a front panel headphone amplifier that allows for the connection of two headphones for discreet monitoring of four selectable sources, either simultaneously or independently. This can be used in a variety of advantageous ways, such as allowing a vocalist listen to their own mix while the engineer mixes the actual mix while listening through the other set of headphones.
