I use cubase 9 on a mac. I have an apollo twin now, and had for years an apogee symphony. I have a decent room, and decent speakers. but here is what I am hearing and wondered why.
inside the DAW, while recording, or mixing stuff up, it sounds really good, deep rich etc. whatever you want to call it. when i mix down demos to listent to i select 320 whatever it is for the highest quality MP3 (also have tried WAV) and when it appears on my desktop and I play it back, thru the same apollo or apogee, same speakers, same volume its just so collapsed and differnt, so much....less. even with a WAV file.
why is that? is my question. I am not sure what my pan law is? does that make a diff though in mixdown? i think its -3 something.
I would be really happy with the sound in the DAW, out of the DAW, but it never happens.
Now having worked with some really good mixers/producers/mastering folks here i KNOW they get a great out of the DAW sound, but for me, its jsut totally different and was just wondering what could be done or looked at?
