As a complete amateur , I 'd like to ask how you guys deal with getting a song to sound good across multiple platforms and your techniques.
I read studio engineers use a mono speaker to switch to from studio monitors to judge how it sounds on say a mobile phone speaker and mix accordingly.
I have never done this and relied purely on my ears and monitor speakers. Maybe I should? I just feel that mixing this way perhaps enforces a compromise in the end sound. Am I missing something here?
Also short of taking youth serum, how do engineers cope with the ageing process as ones ears frequency response deteriorates as you get older especially the top end. My fear is of over compensation of the top end because of this. I also find it hard to hear if low end bass notes are in tune at times. Anyone else?
Interested to hear your thoughts and suggestions/tips. Thanks
