Mixing and Mastering Course:

In this video, Jake Perrine, veteran mix engineer, teaches us how to analyze our mixing room using a microphone to detect resonant peaks and dips. He uses 3 techniques using sine way sweeps and pink noise, then analyzing in tools such as Voxengo SPAN and Room EQ Wizard. Understanding what your room and speakers are doing to the audio helps you decide on things like speaker placement and acoustic treatment to help you get closer to a flat response. The advantage of this type of testing is a better listening environment where you can produce higher quality mixes with a more professional sound.

  1. typical mini home studio! why does everybody work out of a shoe box from a
    computer office desk these days instead out of an actual studio?

  2. yeah decide on a set of speakers and get the redundant set out of the room
    as extra sets of speakers next to each other is not sensible

  3. Which way should the reference microphone be pointing? If I place a
    cardioid mic in the spot where I sit to mix and point it forward so that
    its polar pattern is parallel with the floor and ‘looking’ at a point
    exactly midway between my studio monitors, then surely that takes no
    account of all the LF problems I’m likely to hear from the walls and
    corners *behind* me. I’m lucky enough to have a Neumann U87Ai, and I
    wondered if I should set that up at the mix position, perpendicular to the
    floor (so it’s upright) and put it into Omni mode. That way it would hear
    sounds coming from all around. Would that give me the measurement I need?
    Anyone got any thoughts on that? Great video, by the way, DJ Vespers.

  4. How much bass trap treatment do you have in that room? The jaggedness is
    quite benign. I have far deeper and higher dips and peaks in adjacent
    frequencies.
