It's Me.. Honest Its Me!!

Recording woes…

Its just one of those things… when do you stop? When is it done? I have been mixing music for my trio “4 Strings of Swing”. The goal here is to have a CD completed for the Dallas Uke Festival! I know tight timing!

So, I kinda broke the golden rule and used headphones instead of studio monitors. I just haven’t invested in studio monitors yet.

I noticed a couple of major differences. The bass seemed a lot louder with headphones.  The spatial spread felt very nice in the headphones but in the car it felt to wide and the music lost its dynamic contour.

I am going to back off on the reverb and how wide the spatial settings are … I will post an update.
