How do you actually know that all the adjustments that you did during mixing, made the track sound better? We need some objectivity on this matter, cause we can’t always trust our ears. The brain is a complex psychological thing which can trick us. We need to protect ourselves 🙂

Objectivity in your mixes is important!
In this video I show you two simple tricks to get that little bit more objectivity in our mixes. We’re gonna use two kinds of reference tracks for that.
One is a raw version of your composition. Raw meaning no adjustments done whatsoever. Just the sounds as they come out of the library. Pure, honest and unedited.
The second reference track is a professional music track. Hopefully you will have a music track in your possession that has some similarities with yours. Think about mood, instruments, genre etc.. And use that to get a second comparison for more objectivity.
