Today I’m gonna share with you something that could literally transform your mixes.
It’s something I learned from my good buddy Graham Cochrane (who co-runs Dueling Mixes with me).
It’s what Graham calls the “4-Step Listening Check.”
When you’re nearing the end of your mix, put the mouse down and just sit there and listen to your mix, using the following “methods.”
- The Low-Level Listen
- The Cheap Speaker Listen (Or as I like to call it, “The Crappy Speaker Listen”)
- The Tiny Headphone Listen
- The Open Door Listen
I used this checklist just this morning, and it worked like a charm.
Graham and I discuss these in detail on the latest episode of the Simply Recording Podcast. Find out why it works so well here:
And while you’re listening, make sure you sign up for Dueling Mixes. We’re just a couple days away from releasing all new tracks for you to listen. It’s the perfect place to practice your mixing (and listening) skills.
Buh-bye for now,
