  • Use Good Headphones

There are some headphones that really annoying, some doesn’t actually produce the music you are mixing. Para marinig mo talaga ang real sound or ng studio engineers sound, kailangan mo ng isang flat response at dependable na studio type na headphone, this will also help you improve your mixing.

May mga headphones na para live audio or consumer type, meron din naman sobra sa bass tulad ng DJ type headphones, at mas malala kung ang magagamit mo ay yung masyadong makalaskas o yung tinatawag na bluetooth in-ear type earphone or headphone. Kaya naman kailangan mo din isaaalang-alang ang pagpili ng mga equipments na ating gagamitin

Our ears and the ability to hear every single details of music must be conserved properly. Above all these guidelines, kailangan din ng ating pandinig ang nararapat na pahinga. Mas magiging epektibo ang mixing natin if we have clear and rested ears before continuing listening to sounds.

  • Download Ear Training Softwares

May mga tools na ngayon na pwedeng mag-generate ng tones where you have to listen and take a short quiz after listening to that particular sound. Makakatulong ito para ma familiarize kung anong uri ng tunog ang narinig mo sa bawat frequencies.

Maari mong itry ang any popular DAW applications to listen your reference music, kung saan kailangan mo lang makinig sa audio habang nag eexperiment ka sa EQ plugins, make sure lang na bypass lagi ang EQ para ma kumpara mo ang before at after EQ.

Then after that take a short quiz from it and make sure lang na nakikita mo ang frequency na pinipihit mo pa boost or cut, focus on negative and positive result sa naririnig mo, ulit-ulitin mo lang ang pakikinig hanggang masanay at ma memorya mo na ang mga uri ng bad and good frequency tones na naririnig mo .

  • Listen to Professionally Recorded Mix

Listening professional mixes can help you train your ear what professionally mixed music sounds like until you’re getting used to those kind of tones and rhythm, and when the time comes that you have to mix your own music mas magiging matalas na ang tenga mo.

I recommend listening and analyzing, himayin mo maigi, focus on one element at a time to memorize the sound, start from kick drum, snare, hi-hats, bass guitar, and vocal, etc., then praktis mo din pag focus on 2 elements, 3 or 4 elements listening at the same time, and compare the frequency.

Para sa pagbuo ng kalidad na mixing tenga muna ang sanayin mo dahil dito nagkakaron ng discrepancies ang bawat newbie mixers, they first learn how to use plugins and tools, pero dipa trained sa listening skills, kaya kahit maghapon na sa kapipihit dipa rin ma achieve ang tamang result, tama?

Kaya kung hindi tamang audio ang lagi mong naririnig maaari itong magkaroon ng impact sa pagbuo mo ng sarili mong music, that’s why it is very much important to listen to those who are doing it properly.
