More accurate reading of the bass especially because I'm working on an old metal and wood desk that reverberates a lot when you tap on it.
I own a pair of M-Audio BX8a & the M-Audio SBX 10 subwoofer. Well long story short, my subwoofer was really vibrating against my wooden floor so I was using old heavy books to hold it down because my only other solution was physically holding the subwoofer down lol so I did my research and found these bad boys (pads) and bought em. My concern was more for my subwoofer but I figured hey minus well buy two sets of isolation pads. Did this a few weeks ago, the first pair for the monitors and the second to lay my subwoofer on. Really loved the extra pieces cut out that they come with the pads so you can choose how to best angle your monitors and subwoofer. And so, they solved my problem! Subwoofer really does play appropriately and like the info on the pads say they really do make your monitors sound like "they are playing while floating in the air!" These really did what they were meant to do. very well worth it, for a cleaner more accurate mix. Just make sure you get used to the monitors being angled slightly different. Very worth it, and remember buy two sets if you have a subwoofer laying on a solid floor! Btw the look on these bad boys make your monitors look a lot more pro!
The salesman suggested these and Wow I'm glad I bought these. The pads angle my KRK Rokit 6 powered monitors perfectly and provide the needed isolation to the surface the monitors sit on. Perfect!!
I really didn't think they would be so great, but wow, I'm surprised. These little pads make a great difference. I even had to turn down the volume a little because my monitors are more accurate and I can hear more clearly. Don't second guess yourself, BUY these. I own a pair of M-Audio BX5a by the way. Makes them sound a lot better.
before we added the Mo Pads to our studio we thought our music was just fine until a friend of mine told me about the Mo Pads and demanded we get them, and sure enough, as soon as we put them under the KRK rocket 5's we noticed that our low end was really weak and almost non existent so i highly recammend that you purchas the Mo Pads
I live in a 'cave,' an apartment that was carved out of a piece of concrete. Needless to say it's acoustically "live." When I had my Bose 301's on the floor the sound was horrible. Put them on the MoPads, and wow! A cleaner sound with lower volume! I can only imagine what they'd do for performers who have to put their amps and monitors on whatever surface is available.
We have been recording for our band. As we added the Mopads to our Monitors we experienced a huge difference in sound. The sound quality and clarity increased. My annoying neighbor stopped complaining about we are being too loud. I was so impressed with this that I actually went and bought 1 more set for my Home Theater System and my systems are sounding sweeter than ever. For sound isolation for Monitors Mopads are the best.
When I placed my monitors on these pads, I could tell the difference. The bass was tighter, and the mids were more clear. Now, I know that these don't make a huge difference, but in the world of mixing a little goes a long way. By isolating your monitors from the surface they rest on, you will get a more true sound and be able to make adjustments more accurately. Definitely worth the money!
If you have a mixing desk with monitors on a shelf, or on monitor stands these will help isolate the monitors from the desk or floor. It may not be a night and day change, but anything that makes your monitors more accurate is worth the price. It tightens up the sound for a small investment.
I purchased 2 sets of the Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads for my quad setup at home, and 4 more sets for an eight-channel cube for the studio. Besides being able to hold heavy monitors, they can be tilted 3 ways (great for the eight-speaker cube since there are quad fields above and below the sweet spot). They REALLY tighten up the bass frequencies of my monitors! Well worth the money!
