Do you use reference tracks for the master before THE master or do you just wait until your ear say it sounds proper? If so, what was the last tracks you referenced?

I generally reference the mastered version of last mix I did that I liked. That's the most reliable comparison I could make.

I generally use 'Splitting An Atom' too, which is probably the most translatable mix I ever did. It sounds the same wherever I hear it. Although, 14 years later, I still wish I'd added half a dB of 5.5kHz to the snare drum or drum buss, for a tiny bit more bite. I should probably let go of that now.
