Get a Mix to Every Musician!You may have plenty of talent available to record. And you might have the right gear to record it and the right software to produce everything. But if you can't get a decent headphone mix out to all the musicians, you've lost the whole point! How can they play their best if they can't hear well?? Think about it. Fortunately, it won't cost you a fortune to equip your studio for full-band recordings. With the handy PreSonus HP60 headphone amplifier, you'll be able to send feeds to up to six sets of headphones. Since the headphone jacks and controls are right on the front panel, the talent can plug right in and tweak away.
You'll appreciate the fact that the HP60 headphone amp has more than just one stereo input, it has two. And whoever has their 'phones plugged in can mix between input source "A" and input source "B." Maybe the drummer wants a lotta click and no voice, but the vocalist wants mostly voice and band but no click at all... it's totally possible here. Cooler yet, you can plug a stereo source into each individual channel to make things custom here. Maybe that's a finely tuned feed from your DAW. Or maybe it's a metronome you want plugged in for the drummer, so the rest of the band doesn't have to deal with the monotony of a click.
All in all, the HP60 offers a whole lot of flexibility to the modern engineer. And, trust us, the talent is going to appreciate it. You'll seem more professional, but more importantly... they're going to perform better because they can hear better, and the track is going to sound better because they performed better, and they're going to be happier with you because the track sounded better... and on and on and on. Long story short, this could be the one piece of gear that ratchets you from "pro sound" to "pro sound with pro efficiency." And sometimes that makes all the difference.
