Mixing volume


Thanks for doing this. My question is brief. What volume(s) do you prefer to do most of your mixing at? Do you mix at "normal" listening levels or maybe mix at very quiet levels to ensure balance? I've seen things all over the map on this topic.

Hi Alex, I like LOUD. I do gauge the level on what I am listening to at any given time. If I am just listening to something very percussive, like snare, I tend to have the volume down a little, but when everything's in, LOUD. I will check on small speakers but most of the time LOUD.
