Simple tip for getting more balanced mixes

with 2 comments

Today I want to talk a little about getting the right balance of frequencies in your mix. It’s all good to get the volume of each track just right in the concept of the song. Sometimes though, you will still find that when you listen to your tracks on another system, they sound too trebly or too bassy.

If It happens consistently, then the issue might be with your monitoring setup. If your mix consistently lacks bass, lower the amount of bass coming out of your speakers. That way what previously might have seemed like the right amount of bass will now be not enough. Therefore, correcting the previous lack of bass.
Do exactly the same with treble. If there is too much normally, then turn it up on your speakers to reflect that.

Have a great weekend guys! I have a wicked video for you all tomorrow!

    • I’m glad you agree.
      Adjusting the bass levels on my speakers was by far the easiest thing I’ve ever done to improve on the quality of my mixing.
