DAVE PENSADO Mix Engineer (Beyoncé, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey) “They call them speakers so I expect them to speak to me. I want them to tell me, “Hey Dave- that snare’s just not loud enough buddy.” So I’ll turn the snare up and we have a good relationship. If you talk to engineers, we all have personal relationships with speakers we have and use.
TERRACE MARTIN Artist, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist (Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott) “I believe you have to learn and dance to that speaker. You have to cook to that speaker, I believe you have to talk while that speaker is playing, I believe you should really get to know your speaker.”
QMILLION Mix Engineer (Robert Glasper, Christian Scott, Mykal Kilgore) “The pros have known about Reftones. If you knew, and one of your friends told you, “Oh, this is it, this is what’s happening, you gotta get a pair!” The people I’ve told about it- we’ve been getting it. But now that it’s available at Sweetwater, it’s like EVERYBODY can get it.”
DAVE PENSADO “I keep them right in front of me, right here [side by side] and I love them!”
NEAL POGUE Producer Engineer (Kaytranda, Tyler, Doja Cat) “Sometimes I use them in back of me when I’m checking a mix. I’ll have my Ref-cubes in front of me and then I’ll have the Bluetooth ones in back. I like to reference mixes in back of me.”
DAMIEN LEWIS Mix Engineer (Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Fifth Harmony) “Bluetooth just makes everything easy. So if your connection is faster you can immediately pull something up on your phone and send it to these speakers, or you can stream your mix to these speakers. Just take advantage of all the technology that’s out there.” The stereo pair of LD-3B Ref-Cubes have the convenience of 25W power and offer two types of inputs. It defaults to Bluetooth mode when you turn them on. Using the controls on the top, you can play and pause, control the volume and skip forward and backward. Easily switch to the analog 3.5mm aux input with the “M” Mode button on top of the right-side control cube. The speakers connect together with one speaker wire and thrive in easy-to-reach setups.
DAVE FORE Mastering & Mix Engineer (Collie Buddz, Tray Deee, Goldie Loc) “For mastering, its the RMS level- the perceived volume from track to track. When I think I’m done, I’ll just throw it up on the Ref-Cubes and listen to them, go through real quick and I’ll know, like that, if something needs to be tweaked just a little bit more that I didn’t catch on the bigger monitors. I use them for both mixing and mastering.
MARK EVANS Producer & Mix Engineer (Bryana Salaz / Sharks! /Mija / Bad Lovers Club) “I know when I’m done working on them, its going to translate perfectly everywhere. I listen through my AirPods, I listen in the car- it just translates.” If want the full power option, passive LD-3 ref-cubes take up to 300W of power! There can be more control with a separate power amp and passive ref-cubes make more sense in certain setups.
QMILLION “If you only had one pair of speakers, get these and get headphones. You go back and forth, right. What’s happening in the highs and lows in the headphones and then everything else on the Ref-Cubes.”
RONNIELP Filmmaker & Owner of Bird & Lion (Arturia, Lauren Audio, Antares) “As a filmmaker I use my Ref-Cubes all the time. Every edit, those are my go-to to make sure that I’m getting that right balance between dialog, music and effects.”
DEEZLE Producer, Artist (Lil Wayne, Drake, Chris Brown) “When I’m designing sounds or getting tones, when I hear it there, I know I’m hearing it for real. On the Ref-Cubes.”
DJ BATTLECAT Producer, Sound Designer, Mentor (Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, YG, Ty Dolla $ign) “I’m pretty sure that people that love how I hear music would want to be a part of anything that I invest in, so yeah it’s mandatory that you have these Ref-Cubes if you want to be with the big boys. Or coexist with us like that. Go get them. I mean, I gotta have ‘em. I’m taking ‘em everywhere I go!”
From Our Customers: “Finding the balance quickly shaved off hours of mixing time!”
