Headphones - listening and (basic) mixing - Page 2

post #16 of 19

It's hard to say, I borrow more than anything but I suppose it might be EDM, but I'm veering towards EBM which is slower and heavier. :wink_face:

 

Search Soundcloud for user722855929, there's a couple of my mashups on there. The Beach Boys Mashup samples Brainkiller which is classic EBM/New Beat. These were done with AKG K240 DF, but with the bass on the desk bumped up a tad.

I listened to the 2 you have posted. Pretty clean sounding mashups. The kick drums are nice and warm, I guess that has to do with the bass being bumped up a tad.

Well, the opposite is true - when bass is under-represented on the monitoring gear, any mixes tend to be on the bassy side and vice-versa. This is why it's a good idea to use headphones, check on speakers, and check the mix on as much kit as possible. Each thing may find an unpleasant bump which the other things miss.

 

Although the main thing is experience, I've had the DFs for nearly 15 years from new and really know them well!

Yeah, exactly, it is really important to check mixes on everything you can. Even your car system or apple ear buds may tell you something that other gear didn't.
