Tina Guo Hears the Depths of Her Mixes With Newly Released ROKIT G4
White Noise Studio Monitors
LAS VEGAS, SEPTEMBER 22, 2020 â€“ Internationally acclaimed, GRAMMY Award-nominated and BRIT Female Artist of the Year-nominated musician Tina Guo is one of the most recorded solo cellists of all time. Known for her unique genre-crossing style, Guoâ€™s mixes can be heard on hundreds of blockbuster film, television, and game soundtracks. As a dependable mixing solution, Guo turns to KRK Systemsâ€™ latest product offering, the ROKIT G4 White Noise 8-inch professional studio monitors. In addition to her recording projects, Guo also relies on her KRK G4s as playback monitors for her livestream concerts.
As a long-time fan of KRK Systems, Guo previously utilized the brandâ€™s ROKIT G3 powered studio monitors. When upgrading to the latest generation of KRKâ€™s renowned ROKITs, Guo chose to go with the eye-catching White Noise variation. â€œCompared to my ROKIT G3s, the G4s are more powerful and lighter in weight, which is extremely beneficial as I have both speakers on my standing desk, which I move up and down throughout the day,â€ says Guo. â€œI was immediately drawn to the cool aesthetic of the white color of these new monitors.â€
While recording from home and streaming live concerts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Guo solely relies on her project studio setup equipped with KRK White Noise monitors to mix all of her tracks. While adjusting to this work-from-home setup, it has been extremely beneficial that Guo is able to seamlessly adjust her EQ settings using the monitorâ€™s simple-to-use LCD interface. â€œThe LCD screen with visual EQ is amazingâ€”it provides various frequency presets to adjust to the best setting for your specific playback or mix environment.â€
Using her KRK White Noise monitors for playback, Guo recently completed two albums: â€œWinter Night: Traces in the Snow,â€ which will be released on Sony Masterworks, as well as â€œGESICHTSSCHMELZER,â€ which is an Extreme Music (production music arm of Sony/ATV Music Publishing) album as a composer with Frank Klepacki that translates to â€œface-melter.â€ She also recently turned to her KRKs as playback monitors for the recording of an in-game commercial for the new â€œStar Citizenâ€ video game, as well as soundtracks for â€œSpongeBob 3â€ and two upcoming Netflix films: â€œHillbilly Elegyâ€ and â€œA Babysitterâ€™s Guide to Monster Hunting.â€ Additionally, Guo is currently deploying her KRK 8-inch White Noise monitors for her upcoming solo album, also being released on Sony Masterworks in 2021.
â€œI am a huge fan of KRKâ€™s studio monitors,â€ says Guo. â€œWhen mixing soundtracks for cello, it is crucial that I can hear the depths of my mixesâ€”and the KRK G4 White Noise monitors project a natural and unaltered sound. In addition to all of the speakerâ€™s cool features, their high-quality audio and affordable price tag add to the value of the White Noise monitors. I am excited to continue relying on these awesome looking speakers for all of my remote recording sessions, album projects, and live stream concerts in the future.â€
