Re: Headphones for mixing

I'd never use headphones on their own for mixing and mastering, but they are useful for dealing with detail that's not always obvious on loudspeakers and, bearing in mind that plenty of people now tend to listen to music with headphones and earbuds, it is a factor worth checking. I've noticed too th...

If you're determined to have a single closed-back headphone for both, perhaps the Beyerdynamic DT250 would suit your requirements.

Re: SOLVED! Yet another mix down to mp3 question

For MP3, you can use VBR - Variable Bit Rate - because it allows you to decide maximum and minimum bit rates, ie. how high you want to go for high frequency reproduction, and how low in the parts that don't need high bit rate. It's more efficient and you end up getting higher quality audio in a smal...

Re: Headphones for mixing

For tracking, audio quality is not a priority, and for that I use the very modestly priced Sennheiser HD201 headphones. They are light, comfortable, stable on the head (even for a mad headbanging drummer) and very clear. What's more, they help to avoid restrained and underwhelming vocal performances...

Simple answer: Go for it. You appear to have everything you need there in one convenient package.

Re: Microphones

Bear in mind that you will need to purchase a USB interface, which will need to include an XLR input that supplies phantom power. Furthermore, condenser mics, being very sensitive, will require a stand; such is their sensitivity that holding them by hand will likely cause unwanted noise. Then you wi...

Re: Excellent budget mixing headphones: Superlux HD681F

Thanks for this tip Ian. The freq response in the critical (to me) 2k-7k range is far better than an old pair that cost more than 5 times as much. Great economy mixing/ref cans. Your right about the pads, but that's a small thing as you say. Looking for some cloth/velour now...... I'm glad you like...

Re: Excellent budget mixing headphones: Superlux HD681F

For quality headphones, $35 is a great price, but honestly I don't get the value/interest in semi-open headphones. They bleed so a potential danger for tracking, and if only for monitoring, fully open is preferable. The difference between 'open' and 'semi-open' is a mute point, but is something tha...

Re: Auto tune for out of tune bass in recording...

The whole thing was likely sped up a little in order to sharpen the sound, which was a fairly common practice before digital recording. It may be easier to take the whole Bee Gees track down a little until it matches the pitch of your well-tuned bass guitar.

Re: Excellent budget mixing headphones: Superlux HD681F

Can't remember which from which vendor I got that message. My guess is that it was Thomann, based in Germany. I had to dig deep in order to stumble across Musicsquare, the Polish retailer I bought mine from at what looks to be the lowest price anywhere. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to trade out...

Re: Excellent budget mixing headphones: Superlux HD681F

Hmmmm "This item does not ship to Canada" :( At that price would have been worth a try. I just did a search. It's available from North American links below, although costs a bit more. The picture in the first one has the red trim, which denotes HD681, while the HD681F has white trim - so ...
