Did You Know?
Your ears are deceiving you. Not on purpose, but they are. A lot of this comes down to your listening environment.
Did you know that parallel walls are bad for mixing music? Did you know that having too big of a monitor size in comparison to your room is bad? Did you know that most project and home studios don’t do nearly enough broadband bass absorption and diffusion? Did you know that unless you have a sub woofer (which means your room needs even MORE treatment) that you have no way of accurately reproducing frequencies under 35 Hz?
Discover how to overcome these common challenges with tips and techniques you can start using straight away.

The ear (like all human senses) is a very subjective tool. Not all ears can hear the same frequencies, not all ears can define pitch differences in similar ways and not all ears are in the same listening environment. This is why mixing music is so hard. Lets face it, getting a mix that sounds great on your monitors, head phones, computer speakers, car stereo and ear buds is a daunting task.
