i just have a very general question about monitors, and that is are they important?
until recently i did all my mixing with headphones, and the result was this: it sounded great through headphones, but terrible through speakers. after reading some of these mixing posts i realized why, so i figured i should start using speakers. but my question is why are $1,000 monitors so important when you can just buy regular speakers for like 40 bucks, because thats what most people will be listening to music through?
i'll say that i'm sure there is a reason, but i'm just curious as to what it is. any info would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
