Re: Mixing without Monitor speakers

I find it extremely difficult to get an OK mix with just headphones (Sennheiser HD600s). What usually suffers is the volume balance as well as the high end, as it's all hyped when sitting on your ears. You listen to it on another sound source the next day and deflation sets in as it now sounds like...

Re: Volume vs. Gain

Too much thump in a kick can usually be fixed by a bit of careful EQing. There is often a peak in your kick frequency in the 80-120 hz range that can cause quite a lot of resonant 'honking' in the kick. Lowering that a tad can help your kick sound solid without cutting too much of the volume. Its m...

Can you mix a song without mastering it?

What is the purpose of mixing and mastering?

Do you always have to master if your mix is good?

Re: Volume vs. Gain

You might be able to fix it by lowering the gain. Part of the idea around mixing is to set the sonic stage for all the elements in your track. When you're doing this, you need to be able to hear a true version of the audio. So a flat response is what you are looking for in headphones and monitors. ...

Re: Volume vs. Gain

Can someone explain to me what gain is? As H2Only showed, there can be different applications to the word Gain. Please explain what context you are referring to?
