Take frequent breaks while working on your sounds.
A very important part of the production and revision process is taking breaks to freshen your ears. While there may be some value in alternative listening options, a more valuable means of refreshing your ear is to take short but frequent breaks while mixing. This might sound awkward if you’re working at a commercial studio and paying an hourly rate.
Yeah, That’s another advantage to mixing in the box in your own home studio😉.
If I’m working remotely it’s particularly easy; I keep track of my actual work time and don’t charge for those breaks doing the dishes (complete that next gta mission😁) to refresh my ear.
If I’m working with the artist present, I still do most of the mix work before they arrive so that we can focus on the fine and more complex details—and so I can use frequent breaks to really prepare for focusing on those details.
