Subwoofer alternative

Sometimes you just don't have enough money to have all the gear you need to make a great audio mix. We know this first hand.  

If you are thinking about buying a pair of decent studio monitors you probably worry about the bass reproduction and all the acoustics treatment that follows. That's natural. But we offer you an alternative to keep some of the budget for other gear that's on your list. Nope, that's not a joke. Read on...  

BSE - Body Sound Experience system is great if you work on bass heavy audio material such as Hip Hop, Rap, Dance, Metal and Hard Rock and you don't have a ballanced room and very good quality subwoofer. Or maybe just neighbours that don't like your music. We've been there,...  

You are looking for a subwoofer to hear what's going on with your audio mix on the low and super low frequencies, right? Any audio engineer who takes him self seriously needs to hear what he's  doing in the mix with as much accuracy as possible.   

To achieve a great monitoring experience you have to have a well ballanced room, expensive speakers with subwoofer and understanding of the Fletcher-Munson curves. 

 BSE pillow can help with the room and subwoofer issues. For the understanding of Fletcher-Munson curves visit this blog post.

 How can BSE pillow be an alternative to subwoofer? 

 Your ears hears the low frequencies really bad compared to frequencies above 1kHz. That's why you have to turn up the volume quite a bit to actually feel the bass shaking your clothes, internal organs, floor and other things. If you don't, you can't mix the low end with any precision. 

 When you sit on or lean on the BSE pillow all low frequency sound is pushed directly into your body without traveling through air. You simply feel the bass in your stomac. Your brain uses this vibrations and interprets them as sound. When you have a standard stereo speakers on or you wear headphones, your brain joins the sound information from all sources. The monitoring experience is full spectrum, rich with detail in the low end, plus you can  listen to the mix at low volumes. That's very important for your long term career in audio as well. 

 If you have any questions about the pillow, please contact us or read more here.

 Oh yeah, how much can you save? If a standard quality subwoofer is aproximately 5-7 hundred, you can buy yourself another guitar. Buy the BSE pillow, now. You'll love it.
