Mixing is something of an art form and getting it just right is often shrouded in mystery. The simplest tweak of a specific frequency or a subtle dip in volume can change a mix considerably. So why is it so hard to get it sounding perfect? It could be your monitors. Most of the time we mix, produce and listen to our mixes through pristine sounding studio monitors and everything sounds great. However when played back on car systems, computer speakers and iPod docks it all sounds wrong. Have you ever thought of getting a second set of monitors that limit the detail to give you a less subjective impression?
People have been sprouting on about the virtues of Yamaha NS10's and Auratones for years, and this is certainly not for their fidelity. These speakers are becoming very hard to come by in good condition so what can you use instead?
We suggest you check out the Avantone Mix cubes. They really sound awful but wonderful at the same time. They limit the top, and bottom end giving you an acute sense of what is really happening in the mids and can be exactly what you need to get that mix sounding how it should on all systems.
