Hi there, I've been a composer for several years however in the past I've always had my mixing taken care of by professional sound engineers. This time, I've tried doing it myself and I've run into an issue that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I've recently mixed a song that is having issues being played back on certain stereo systems. When I listen to the final mix on my studio monitors, or through my computer speakers, or even through Bose headphones plugged into my iPod, the mix sounds great, but when I play the track through my home entertainment system with an amplified tuner, the mix sounds off. None of the frequencies are poking out in a bad way (i.e. nothing sounds tinny or too bassy or mid-rangy, etc.) however the volume of the instruments are unevenly distributed. Some instruments sound too far in the background while others are right up front in the mix. But this only seems to occur on home entertainment systems and through things like a television speaker. Otherwise, in all other listening formats, the track sounds good and evenly distributed with the volume. Is this a compression issue? Or is this something I would have to get resolved through professional mastering of the track? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! Saturnyman.
