OT: Mixing: speakers or headphones?
I need mixing advice. I mix everything in my headphones but I read somewhere its best to do it with studio monitors.
Before I possibly waste money on monitors, can someone tell if it even makes that much of a difference? I really like the privacy of headphones because I don’t want everyone hearing my crappy music over and over in its even crappier early stages.
I’m kinda “alright” with mixing since I do it all by experimenting and haven’t properly learned but I’m wondering if its me using Headphones that’s holding me back from achieving proper sound levels.
The headphones I use now are the Sony MDR 7506’s.
get monitors unless you really cant afford them or dont wanna bother people with your music. if you cant, then make sure to check your mixes through other speakers, car speakers especially. if it sounds good in your car and your headphones, its probably a decent mix
Thanks. What are some good cheap monitors to get? I dont want to buy anything too expensive when I’m just learning.
i got the krk rokit 5s. theyre not the best but they do the trick
@Sunny_D I got the same and I think that they are really, really great for that price
The reason you want monitors versus standard ‘listening’ headphones or speakers is that most headphones or speakers are designed to make the music sound ‘better’ through their own hardware/EQ/etc., while studio monitors are designed to output the sound in it’s most neutral state. If it sounds good in monitors it should sound good on pretty much anything, but if it sounds good on your specific set of headphones it might only sound good on that specific set of headphones.
^^ exactly. my only critique of KRK’s is that I believe they do “color the sound” to some extent. They sound really nice but I’m not sure that I’m getting the most honest frequencies.
