This tip is more for the recording newcomers but could also help others in here. When I finish with a mix and burn it to CD my best place to go and try it out is SEARS!!! Yeah thats right (if you dont have a Sears close by, use any music audio store, if the sales person asks you anything just say your trying out radios with your cd). I go straight into the electronic department and put the CD into every imaginable device that plays music, from simple boom boxes, walkmans, to home theater, covering all price ranges just to see how it sounds in different setting. I take a notepad to take note. Remember not to adjust any sound modification switched the radio might have as this will give you a false sense of what your hearing. I used to do this alot and it helped me dearly, now a day I dont go so often since, Ive trained my ears to learn the difference in music mixes. remember, if it sounds great thru your monitors it doesnt mean its going to sound great everywhere else. Take care!!
