Lives for gear

I look at using references in 2 ways:

1) Trying to gauge the frequency response during a tracking or mixing session for a piece you're working on. This is using a reference as kind of a reminder of what good work sounds like.

2) Trying to gauge how a system responds or how a room reacts to both audio and sound. This is handy if you are working in a room for the first time or don't work as frequently as a full time professional.

I do both actually. I only work in my room at home but as music is a high end hobby for me and I travel a lot for my AV job, there are times when I don't get to sit down at my desk for a month and just do a little listening to refresh my sense of the system I'm forced to take long breaks from.
