i'm finding that I can't get a real world listening channel through either of my devices.
I understand my gear is cheap...
my beyerdynamics dt700 headphones are bass heavy, and I end up turning it down. too much delay and reverb as well.
on my maudio bx5-a monitors, I find it bass less and the delays and revebs are lost.
to demo, I recorded a track with what sounded good in each listening venues making changes to my input (ie, adjusted the hd500).
I burned both to a cd as 320kbs, and played in my car with a premium sound system (infinity 5.1 with sub and even a center channel if so encoded).
both sound like crap. the headphone one is to weak in the bass, and has WAY too much reverb and delay saturation.
The monitor one is very bass heavy, but also very muddy and has no mid gnawrl.
So given the above, and buying new gear is basically out of the question.... what do you suggest I train myself to listen for when i'm recording?
ie, if i'm on [headphones||monitors], how do I get my car to sound good?
how do I mimic real life outcome when neither of my options at all represent what real life sounds like.
Are you recording a bass guitar track as well?
