Hi Ott, I was wondering what your thoughts are on the SUBPAC? I'm looking for a way to get good bass while mixing and at the same time keep the neighbours happy. I guess treating the room is the best way to go, but I tend to move house from time to time. I usually mix at a quiet volume, but most of times I can't get the bass frequencies right... I have a pair of Dynaudio BM6A MKII monitors and an RME Babyface. Anyways, thanks :) Sam
Acoustic treatment is of limited effectiveness in a smallish room and there's no such thing as 'sound-proofing'.
A good pair of headphones, a decent headphone amp and a SubPac are the definitive solution to those two age old problems you describe.
Also, consider Sonarworks Reference 4 correction software. I just bought it and it has changed my life. I cannot recommend it highly enough. [They didn't pay me to say this, I bought it with my own money.]
The layers of subtlety in your music helped me get into sound art. Do you ever go to sound art exhibitions? Are there any sound artists you particularly enjoy?
Wondering what some of the songs you consider to have the best production and mixdowns you have ever heard are? Any genre.Ott responded on 06/10/2018
