When you compare your music to your favourite songs and artists, how does it sound?
Did you say “great” ?
Did you say “OK” ?
Did you say “Not so good…” ?
Whatever you answered, now answer this question:
Are you sure you were right with that answer ?
Because comparing our music to other similar songs isn’t quite as simple as you may think.
“Just upload a reference song and listen back-to-back”, right ?
There’s a crucial step you need to take first – and if you don’t, you have no idea what you’re really listening to.
Because luckily, that crucial step is very simple – and incredibly revealing. I actually find this technique so powerful, I think if it as “x-ray vision” for your mix or master.
To find out what it is and how to do it, watch the video above – then do your comparison again.
Has your answer to my first question changed ?
