Chief Engineer, Flux Studios, NY
Daniel Sanint started as an intern at Flux Studios in 2009 and worked his way up to Chief Engineer and studio manager. He has a Masters in Music Business from NYU and a B.S. in Audio Production from Universidad de Los Andes, Colombia.
“ Flux Studios has relied on Focal monitoring from the very start, and crew and clients have benefited from this venture. I have worked with the Shape 50 and they deliver really good low-end clarity for such a small speaker. The one thing the Shape 50 do that I haven’t heard any other speaker do is keep the low-end present and clear at low volumes. This makes it an excellent tool for referencing during recording and mixing! ”

“ I have had the privilege of using quite a few monitors from the amazing Focal range. Twin6, the huge Trio11, and now the Shape 65. Which speaker is better I hear you ask, and the answer is the same for each one of them, they are all superior to anything I have ever used. I may have changed the size of my speakers over the years BUT I would not change the brand. Focal is by far the brightest light in this game. A speaker for every situation! These speakers may come in different sizes but they all come with the same clarity, transparency, power and dynamics. The quality is never compromised and the cutting edge design oozes with a funky retro personality. ”

“ I've had the pleasure of using several monitors from the Focal range throughout my professional career, from the Solo6 to the Shape 65 and the Alpha 50's. Specifically for this past year I've been mixing on my Shape Twins and I can gladly say that I don't see myself using any other brand other than Focal. All the Focal monitors offer something that I really love, a clean and loyal sound. I love how clear my monitors are! I can trust what I'm hearing. They are extremely clean and balanced, with lots of dynamics and pristine highs. I know for a fact that I can get solid punchy mixes working with them. ”
