I used to do a lot of midi music with the PC about 10 years ago. I remember there was a special kind of speakers professionals use to determine the proper volume level output during the recording of the song so as to be playable on all CDs/DVD/radio, etc. without sounding too loud or too soft. Would I still need that today? Today is 10 years later, and I'd imagine musicians no longer require that special set of speakers? Would Garage Band or Apple Logic now provide software guidance on the proper volume level of recording?
If I sound lacking in specificity as far as terms are concerned, it's because it's been 10 years, and I'm just trying to get back into this hobby.
Also, what brand of speakers would you Apple musicans recommend? Thanks.
