When mixing, does anyone feel as though they have a dominant side/ear? Meaning, is there a side (L-R) that you sort of build your mixes around when you pan and mix? Do you find yourself putting a favorite track on a specific side and than building your mix around that? I ask this because ill sometimes find myself doing this. Ill usually begin to build my mixes in the high end first. Being that the high hat is usually placed more towards the left in my mixes, i build my mix around the left ear in a sense, which is my dominant side. However, it doenst appear to hinder my mixing ability or give the mix an unbalanced feel (at least i HOPE NOT!), it just simply gives me a starting point. Though, it depends for what kind of mix im doing as well. For example, i use the high hat when im mixing a ''band mix'' because of its high end, but when i dont have drums in the mix, or if it is much more of a stripped down mix, i will than base my mixing from the center and use other means of ''sonic sorting''. What are some of your takes on this subject?
