At the different levels of sound reproduction audible frequencies peaks’ are differently perceived by our ears, the most flat frequency’s response is in the sound pressure level about 85 dB.
In addition, long listening causes fatigue of our ears, especially in the dangerous volume levels. Therefore, EQ settings, with which you've been mixing for 10 hours at a volume level of 105 dB, when the sound seemed good last night, in the next morning it will not seem as good.
You need to have a sample, which can be guided in the case where the equalization’s change causes confusion and hinders the return to reality. It is also important to control the volume level in order to know exactly when it is already enough for your ears for today and then to stop. That's the key of how to get successful as the mixing and mastering dubstep.
Fortunately, more and more people are becoming aware of the importance of this parameter both for mixing and for monitoring the recording track. Therefore, we will not consider this issue in detail too.
However, some budding engineers tremble and say something like: "My cabinet is not designed for that, so everything is hopeless”. Moreover, I answer that this is not so. To change the situation for the better you can place multiple bass traps and diffusers correctly, as well as listen to records at lower levels using near-field monitors.
In this way, you reduce the impact of room acoustics on what you hear, and therefore increase accuracy. Of course, you can adjust to the characteristics of your system to some extent, which undoubtedly will bring a certain effect, but it is worth nothing about the improving acoustics, if you have not yet assumed any measures thereby.
To place the microphones at random and spin the knob to get the desired result are quite interesting. Perhaps you are lucky, but your chances to create a fantastic mix will increase many times, if you will understand the basics at least of how it works and what it is intended for one, or the other equipment.
This means that more time should be given to the study the technical aspects and various techniques of modern recording and to make acquaintance with the instructions of hardware and software, to analyze the works of predecessors and contemporaries, to experiment and to listen to your own works and projects made by another mixing service.
