It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on DSF…
However, I’ve still been collecting data and equipment for the continuance of my musical journey.
I was gifted around 1500$ recently, and I aim to put around 1000$-1200$ of it towards some new equipments….
Here’s what I have in mind:
Most of what I am looking at is through Sweetwater:
I’m considering a pair of KRK ROKIT 7 G4 7" Powered Studio Monitors:
KRK ROKIT 7 G4 7" Powered Studio Monitor
478$ for the pair.
However, I could save 117$ if I downgrade to the 5" pair:
KRK ROKIT 5 G4 5" Powered Studio Monito
358$ for the 5" pair.
Here’s a video Comparing the two:
I would really love your guys’ input on this choice.
The speakers nearly sound identical to me, with the 7" being a little wider and open in sound.
I’m kind of gauging what would be best for me at the moment, based on some other items I want.
I would really like a DJ Controller to practice and hone my live skillz
, so I am looking at the Numark Mixtrack 3 DJ Controller:

Alright so here’s the big question of the thread:
What’s better - an analog synthesizer or a midi controller hooked up to FL and all my synths on there?
I do have FL Studio Producer Edition.
I do consider myself an “in the box” artist (as I start) - meaning I’ll mainly be arranging and producing my beats in the DAW.
However, I would love to get an actually synth to add for my tracks.
And, for that, I’m mainly looking at two in particular:
1.) The Novation MiniNova
Novation MiniNova 37-key Synthesizer with Vocoder
2.) The Moog Sub Phatty
Moog Sub Phatty Analog Synthesizer
Once again, my curiosity really remains with the decision to get an actual synthesizer or just get a midi keyboard and use all the synths that came with FL Studio Producer Edition.
Last, but not least, I plan to get a quality AID - so I’ve got my eyes on the:
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen USB Audio Interface
Still kind of unsure what the AID do…
I know they allow you to connect Studio monitors to your computer, which is what I’ll need.
However, do they posses their own soundcard? What is their role in live mixing (with synths)?
Thanks for your time and consideration!
I would really love some input on this guys, I really want to know what you think before I make a move on these items.
