I occasionally use a spectrum analyzer when mixing in my rooms I know however I always check an analyzer when mixing in a new room. That being said , I have been mixing for so many years
that i know if i am "outside" my normal curve as far as EQ goes. I tend to put a lot of low end in my mixes (300hz on guitars )and I always discuss my desired goals with the mastering engineer.
For instance, The Shrine album I just finished had a ton of low mids on the main guitars. I told Maor Applebaum (mastering engineer) I wanted to maintain that frequency quality . Some
mastering people may scoop out the low mids and over boost the high end. I did NOT want that. I wanted (and they DO) the guitars to "BARK"!
