Okay, so you’re sitting in your studio, working on a mix.
The last mix you did turned out pretty well, but this one is just NOT coming together.
You can’t seem to get a good level, you keep clipping your master bus, and no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get that big, full mix you got last time.
Talk about frustrating.
There are a lot of factors at play when it comes to mixing a song, but there’s one that I ignored for a long time. But ever since I addressed it, I’ve gotten more consistent mixes.
What is it?
Calibrating my studio monitors.
No, I’m not talking about tuning the monitors or buying any extra equipment. You can literally do it with a free iPhone app and an easy-to-follow process.
The result? You start churning out mixes at consistent volumes.
Not only are the volumes consistent, but the tone of the mixes becomes much more consistent as well, which is huge when you’re mixing an album project. You don’t want each mix to sound drastically different from the other.
And since I calibrated my monitors, I feel a bit more confident and “in control” when I sit down to mix a song.
It feels like there’s less guess-work.
So, in this week’s VIP training video, I’m going to show you EXACTLY how I calibrated my monitors, and how you can apply it to ANY system.
PLUS you’ll get a bonus 5-page PDF guide that walks you step-by-step through calibrating your monitors.
