How Loud do top producers mix

 

If you’re asking yourself “How loud do the top producers mix?”, then you’re asking the wrong question. Try asking “How soft do they mix?”. That’s right, that’s what we said. Below we reveal the reasons Top Producers mix at lower versus higher levels:

 

1) Mixing at high volumes for long periods of time can cause permanent ear damage. Yes, it’s true…long term exposure to high levels can ruin your ears. If your ears are your assets, best treat them right.

 

2) High mixing volumes for long periods cause your ears to over-compensate for both high end frequencies and low end frequencies. If you only mix at high levels, your ears will run out of gas within a couple hours as opposed to mixing at softer levels which allow you to hear accurately for longer periods of time.

 

3) Mixing loud may sound great in the beginning, but re-listening to the same mix a day later at soft levels will reveal a myriad of imbalances. However, the opposite is not true! Achieving proper balances at soft levels tends to maintain the same achieved balances when heard later at loud levels.

 

Are we saying to mix only at soft levels? No, of course not. In fact, it’s necessary to mix loud for a minute or two to ensure proper balance on the low end spectrum of your mix. Also, in order to ensure effects and EQ’s aren’t saturated, it’s necessary to mix for periods of time at moderate levels. But overall…the best balances are achieved at lower mixing levels.

You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to
be really something which I believe I mght by no means understand.
It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
I’m having a look ahead on your next submit, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!

Hello superb website! Does running a blog similar to this require a large amount of work?
I have very little understanding of coding however I was hoping to
start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
