Every reverb sucked for the particulars songs and for the moment I began reconsidering my profession (okay maybe extreme). So anyway I'm just wondering if I was alone and how you all deal with facing the tough times of recording and mixing?


Here's a recent mix so you don't think I'm always terrible

It can´t rain every day and the sun can´t shine every day as well!
However, mixing with fatigued ears is a very bad idea. It depends on the fatigue but sometimes it can take weeks for your ears to recover fully. You shouldn't underestimate that! I just had this experience recently.
