I like to try think of good useful topics. It is not as if I sit and overly try to think of something good...but this could be one to discuss for a little bit...

Sad thing with me and ear fatigue is I don't know when it sets in but there are times I just force myself away from the desk for that reason...I don't know when I have it...but I know it happens...

Like to hear thoughts on the topic

single best way to help avoid ear fatigue in the control room:


Common mistake, way too common. Always listen at a comfortable, reasonable listening level.

I don't ever crank my speakers unless I hear something very very low that shouldnt be there, ie a pop or click...or early on, a little bleeding...

but after a prolonged time, it sets in.

I listen at comfortable to somewhat low volume till I get a mix I think I like then I crank it to see how it sounds. <G>

The hard part is while recording, it's so much easier to get into the music if it's loud, so I've taken to wearing ear plugs while I'm recording, so I don't get ear fatigue.

And I take frequent breaks from it, cause no matter what the listening volume you need to take breaks from it.
