Lives for gear

Re: mixing on the Remote HN (Sony-driver) headphones: I guess they are ok. For one thing, most of what I do is going to be remixed later, in a studio, so I'm about "acquisition" mostly: the live mix is just a performance demo usually. Also, like we've been talking about, the real problem is the live vs headphone sound in your ears, not to mention your whole body re: low end, plus the sound of people talking etc near me and so on. Taken altogether the situation is far from ideal for making any sort of "finished" mix, so if that is what's wanted then we need to move my set up much farther away from the action. Since this almost never can happen these days, the HN headphones are what works the best for me.
