Questions covered this week:

  • Do you actually “mix” on your “crap” speaker, or if you just use it to pick out problems and then go back and mix on your main monitors?
  • I have a home studio setup with three pairs of studio monitors, what is the best way to set up pairs of studio monitors?
  • When the singer hits some notes on my well EQ’d vocal,there are some frequencies that jump up and are annoying. Any way to get rid of those?
  • As a singer, what do you recommend to get better at singing in tune (live + recording) for someone with minor pitch issues?
  • How much silence (if any) do you leave at the very start and very end of a completed mastered song?
