Understanding the low mid-range

Some frequency ranges can make or break a mix. RA's Jono Buchanan explores one of them.

If you're a music producer, feedback from clients, friends or other trusted ears is a hugely useful barometer of how close a mix is to being finished. But when analyzing their (hopefully) constructive criticism, it's interesting to note how you put their words into action. If you're a graphic designer and you show a client some work, it's not hard for them to say "that blue could be darker," or "that font could be larger." For producers, similar suggestions—"the mix could have more air," or "it could be crunchier"—are less tangible. Producers get better with experience at assigning meaning to these, but some are easier to tackle in a mix than others.
