Hi all, Mixes produced in my home studio don't translate well. Always boomy and with a touch of transparent listening fatigue - IOW, it feels "good" when the song ends. But here's my concern: commercial CDs sound very different from my own mixes when played in my control room. On my Mackie HR824s, my tracks sound present, airy and punchy. But then, when I pop in a commercial CD, it sounds more "comfortable," with more mid-range. Every commercial CD has the same quality, so I clearly have a problem. Is it my room, my ears or my brain? If the commercial CDs sound better than my own mixes in my control room, why don't my ears and brain take me in that direction naturally? Why do I always gravitate towards the highs and away from the mids? If I tune my room, will it fix the problem? Is this a natural tendency that mixers learn to compensate for, or do they leave it for the mastering engineer to fix? Or, should I insert an EQ in the monitoring stage to artificially nudge me in the right direction? Any help is greatly, GREATLY appreciated.
