Hi there, I have recently changed my studio monitors for a new pair by a reasonably budget brand from Germany as my old ones which where great died. The sound and detail on the new ones is actually fairly decent but one artifact I notice is the bass signal is not particularly audible when up close and working in a typical nearfield way - certainly much less audible than the mids and highs. What I currently do to get an idea of the bass drum and bass guitar for example is step back into the room by about 4 meters and listen from there. Apart from the obvious suggestion of change the monitors(money I don't have) what can I do as I don't have a clue what I am mixing too for balancing the bass end. Yes I can switch between headphones and nearfielding to give a reasonable idea but this is not ideal and probably not accurate either. Tar. Boy.
