Why don't you use headphones?
I don't really have much use for them.
My hearing is a little damaged but in different ways in each ear - my left ear has no midrange and my right ear has no top end - so I find the effect of having music piped directly into my skull a little strange.
The stereo image seems skewed and I tend to make unnecessary adjustments to compensate.
As a workaround I spend most of my time listening in mono or on small speakers a long way away, to one side or the other. This minimises the distraction.
A few people have commented that when making mix decisions I tend to cock my head to one side or the other and that is me taking advantage of the different frequency responses of each of my ears.
When I mix everything is panned to the centre until the last minute when I quickly spread stuff about as required.
Mastering engineers have pointed out I tend to mix in 'wide mono'.
Would you say that music is a natural talent/skill for you? Or is it a thing you've had to "work hard at" to develop and enjoy? Was getting into it a mental struggle? or fairly straightforward?Ott responded on 06/22/2012 Next question
The night was hot... your set was hot @ Middle East. I wanted more... could have watched you all night.
BTW, I never noticed you have baby ankles. A funny crease on the front where foot meets leg ;)
