Hi all... I have just found your forum and must say it is well wicked.
Here's my problem... I have just purchased a pair of Yamaha MSP5A
's. Previously i had been mixing using headphones. Whilst i know this was not ideal it did the job and i didn't have the issues I am running into now.
When I listen to recordings through my new speakers, that I have mixed and completed using my headphones, the mixes are just all over the place - they sound terriable. So I make adjustments with panning and volume to the track to suit the new spaekers, mixdown, then burn to CD and the result is below average. The bass will be way to loud and overpowering, the synth might be so distant and quiet you can't recongnise it...
What's up with this? What am I doing wrong... or not doing at all? I was told it is just a matter of getting use to the speakers but there must be more to it then this. I don't understand why what sounded like a pretty good mix when listen through headphones now has parts completly washed out or over compensated for just because I am listen o the same mix through different speakers.
If anyone out there could offer me some helpful advice it would be most appreciated. Cheers!
