  • Have you ever considered taking a passive approach to monitor control?

    Sometimes you don't need a ton of features in a monitor controller... as Mackie has proven with one of their latest Big Knob studio monitor controllers - the new Big Knob Passive.

    For all the details, please check out my review:

    As always, feel free to make any comments or ask any questions you may have.

    We actually put the Big Knob in our new studio; my partner loves it...I have not had a chance to try it out yet, but I sent him your review...

      Do you know which Big Knob was installed? There are now four of them - the original Mackie Big Knob that was released in 2005, and now the Big Knob Passive, Big Knob Studio, and Big Knob Studio+.

      In addition to the Big Knob Passive review that is already up, I also just finished doing a review of the Big Knob Studio+, but I'm not quite sure when it's going to be published yet. Stay tuned!

        I believe it is the Passive...I have not been out there [Altadena] to see it yet; he just put it in last week.

        What are the physical dimensions of these knobs, daddymack? Are they big?

      I like the Big Knob but in the past couple of years have been using a Palmer Monicon. It's great, but the only glaring absent feature I'd have liked is a headphone output.
