Headphone monitoring system for tracking. w/ ZERO latency:

Oz audio headphone matrix amp - during live tracking sessions, this allows every member of the band to have there own personal "more me" mix. A good headphone mix is crucial to a good take. With the capability to let every band member have there own custom tailored mix, no one will have to sacrifice what they want for what everyone else wants. The drummer needs more bass but the guitar player needs more of himself and the Bass player wants no guitars and all drums? NO PROBLEM. And all with absolute ZERO latency monitoring.
