    Jumping in late to the party!

    Wanted to chime in with an alternative (to the small speaker technique) that I’ve found, kind of out of necessity – SoundID Reference from Sonarworks.

    I’m using it as a plugin on my master as the last in the chain, in Logic, with a profile/preset specifically for my Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80OHM headphones, to give me a flat response.

    About 5 years ago, I noticed some hearing loss in my mids & Highs (basically, speech!), so I got tested, and have been using hearing aids ever since.

    I was really chasing my tail, trying to get a mix that transferred on multiple systems, so I decided to go the “flat headphone response”, and cut out the environment. It’s really been a game changer for me, and I have a lot more confidence, and trust in what I’m doing.

    Just my 2 cents –

    Thanks for the forum Dana 🙂
