ok im having a real problem to understand why im having this problem. once iv finished my recordings in logic and im ready to do some mixing and mastering i roughly bounce my song and burn it on cd to have a listen on my stereo. when i sit back to listen my ears are listening to something really different. the guitars sound very tinny, the drums sound to loud, the bass has a totally different sound, its more wolly and muffled. its like my little 5 year old cousin played around with it. the question i ask, is my monitors too good or not good at all? am i doing something wrong when im bouncing, am i doing something wrong when i burn my cd. or is it something else. in my recording i have added a bit of eq on my recordings and compression but its only a little bit. just to add a bit of sparkle. im listening back in logic and sounds really good. i know the snare is a bit loud or the bass could come down but thats the process i understand. thats why i did a bounce and burnt it on cd so i could see what volume adjustments i need to make. but im not at that stage. i have a mac g5 2ghz logic pro 8 (the latest update) toast burning programme event 20/20 monitors motu 896hd sound card iv spoken to a few people and some say u need some cheap nearfield monitors, or i need new monitors as my events 20/20 are not giving me a true reflection of my song. if thats the case, when im listening to itunes through my monitors they sound perfect. or do i need to do something in logic (like tick a box which im hoping) the bounce process i do is online, no compressing or dithering. sorry for writing a long message but i really could do with some help on this.Reply
