TRIO6 BE

The Trio6 Be was designed to meet the standards of the most demanding engineers. This dual monitor is the new reference in its price range owing to its extreme neutrality, its precise stereophonic imaging, and its ability to resolve the most minute sonic details, while its Class G amplifiers deliver SPL levels to suit all musical styles.

WILL YIP

Producer • Recording & Mix Engineer

After an internship at the renowned “Studio 4” in Philadelphia (Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, The Fugees), in 2013 producer and engineer Will Yip bought the studio. Today, besides his top artist credits—with over 60 in the billboard charts—he consistently opens doors for up-and-coming bands to polish their sound and create spectacular recording projects.

“ The Trio6s completely changed my audio life. I’ve always searched for the perfect monitor that has detail and makes me work, while still being the most enjoyable to listen to for everyone in the studio. The Trio6 far surpasses anything I’ve ever dreamt of. There’s now life before and after the Trios for me. Before, I would have to reference between 5 sets of monitors and stereo systems before I could commit to how the low end or mid-range detail was sitting.  Now I have the Trios, it’s a one stop shop. Music coming out of my Trio6s is the way that mix is supposed to sit in its most accurate form. There’s so much dimension, depth, and detail at any volume, yet it all translates perfectly to any other speaker. The Trio6s are the perfect monitor. I could never mix a record without them.

“ I’ve been using Focal’s to produce, mix, and record albums for the past 7 years when I was initially introduced to them. They very quickly became one of my most important tools to making records. They never lie to me and make me work for the sound I want by always letting me hear exactly what’s going on sonically and spatially. I’ve no doubt worked on thousands of songs on Focal’s over the years and without hesitation I can confidently say they’ve led me to making my best work in all aspects; whether I’m producing, mixing, recording or all of the above. If the song sounds right on my Focal’s then I know without a doubt it’s finished.

His productions span Broadway’s Tony Award-winner Idina Menzel to pop music sensation and 4-time Grammy Award-winner Sam Smith.

“ The Focal Trio 6 Be is unquestionably the best monitor I’ve ever used. After learning the monitors, I now have a confidence in my mixes that I’ve never had on any other monitor. I can always trust what I’m hearing. I’m blown away at the depth and even performance, especially at extreme low volume. I’m able to mix longer, smarter, and come out with notably better results. I’ve really stopped all mix checking/flipping between sets. The Trio 6 does all this in one cabinet. The Focus mode is all I need to check translation. I'm super fortunate to find myself working within several different genres between Pop and Broadway cast albums. These monitors excel in every genre I work in, as they're incredibly honest. I find myself really excited to listen to music again; even as a passive listener, it’s a total treat. This is, without question, the best upgrade to my setup I’ve ever made.
