    Hi there,
    I run into a problem all the time...
    I make a kick..either thru layer of samples...or synthesize

    When you are tryna get it right...
    Should you listen SOLELY on the monitors or a combination of headphones AND monitors?

    'cause they both sound different...
    Sometimes it sounds good through the monitors...then I put on the head phones...it just sounds ok...
    the headphones, show up minor artifacts...

    i dunno...

    tx

    Both for me but monitors dictate the final product. Headphones vary too much while ifnit sounds good on monitors it tends to translate better across the other devices

    You definitely need both of you're mixing down a kick, I have this problem too. I can't here the low frequencies that clearly on my monitors. I need to use headphones so I can hear the truth in "pump", you also need headphones so you can hear if it sounds too dry...
