I was using Itunes so I couldn't eq very accurately, but even what I did with Itunes made the music very listenable (up to +12 dB at high frequencies). It seems like a good tactic when tracking a band with drums and DI guitars. Could save people some hearing.
So is anybody actually doing this?
Interesting, no, but I just happen to have a set of 201s; might try this on the weekend when we rehearse.
I have heard of some other slutz using chainsaw muffs with earbuds for monitoring while tracking with excellent results, especially the drummer.
