It seems to me like we have things a little backwards as a whole. Under the assumption sounds aren't gojng to just be replaced. Shouldn't the most accurate control room in the whole project be during tracking, and mixing? Or mixing and tracking? Why are mastering where your supposedly just putting the final 2% the ones going down to 10hz and picking up things you never heard? Why does it make sense to go a whole project not hearing something? Would the ideal control room be a mastering room? I'm just kinda zoning out on this kinda idea. in a lot of article in mags it seems like there's a lot of stuff being kinda tracked 'everywhere' and then mixed in room usually more noted for its board or deck, tha the acoustics, then to the scientific space ship mastering room and speakers? It seems contrary to the ire of not polishing a turd and getting right at first, and commitment. Lol there's a huge typo in the title, my iPad flipped for a sec and I missed it. I dunno how to edit the title.
