Why you need both, and room accoustics
- [Voiceover] Monitoring your mix is…a really important aspect of being successful…at creating mixes that translate well…into different systems that they may be played on.…You know, a car system, a living room system…where it's playing in the background,…and headphones where a lot of people listen…to the mixes you've done.…And I think there's a question as to whether or not…the difference between putting your headphones on…and taking them off in your mix room is a beneficial…rallying point to judge how much ambiance to add…to your mix.…
And my solution has always been that,…I think it's good to listen to it both ways.…You're always striving to hear your mix…in a context that your listeners are going…to be hearing it in.…And we certainly cannot ignore the fact that…a lot of people listen to their tunes…on headphones and earbuds.…I have always been a proponent…of kind of switching back and forth.…And I do that.…I mainly switch to headphones towards the end…of the mix that I'm working on to catch details,…to hear clicks and pops I might not have heard…
