Meaning, as the end result...mp3, CD, iTunes, etc? I've spent a bit of time and money recently on proper room treatment as well as a monitor upgrade and have been able to perceive the changes that I make in tracking/mixing better than ever. To that point, I'm very excited. However, as you can probably imagine and maybe even experience, the further I get from the raw .wav files, the more altered the mix becomes. For the most part, I can end up being quite happy with a mix in its raw form, and even bounced to an .mp3 (though, I've not tried burning to CDs yet). I'll double check on my second set of speakers, all good...translations to PC speakers, car radios, etc. all seem pretty well too, but whenever I play mixes through iTunes it just turns me sour as the highs almost always seem too harsh and compressed. Point of the ramble being, what do you guys reference as the be all end all for a good mix for your songs and if you can get it to sound good on all but one or a few listening elements, are you satisfied? I may not be verbalizing this very well, but hopefully you get the jist of what I'm trying to say. I'd love to here your thoughts/comments. Thanks.
