I remember a really funny EQ preset in the Digital Performer menu called "40 yr. old male hearing" with everything above 10k slammed to the ceiling!
Sad to say this one is lightly testing me. It's been some years since my hearing was checked... some small high end loss then... but not bad. Now pushing 50... I'm very aware of my potential to go overboard at the top.
I'm attempting to use my smarts... not be afraid to cut... very careful to boost... but... almost thought about a teenager assistant to teach in trade for "full range ears" on important or time crunch projects.
I've played around with the +2 hi end boosts on powered monitors... but I prefer working flat.
Also... got "drivers ear"... - the left one, from rollin' on down the highway with the window open...
it is weaker then my right... and sometimes my mixes get leaning to the left. I have to turn my chair to check balance sometimes... and often will re-pan something after that test, usually involving a cymbal or tambourine part.
