Golden ears are a myth.
As long as you have never damaged your hearing, your ears are just as good as the best mixers in the world.
In fact, they probably have worse hearing than you after years of listening to music at high volume.
So what’s holding you back? Why can’t you mix like them?
The difference is that they are better at listening.
Listening and hearing are two different things…
You have the physical ability to hear the full extent of your mixes. What you’re really lacking are the listening skills that the professionals have developed.
Over time, your listening abilities will naturally improve. EQ becomes easier, you gain the ability to instantly identify frequencies, and the finer details of compression reveal themselves.
However, you can speed up that process with 3 easy steps.
This is part 8 of the One Month EQ Challenge, and I’m going to reveal what those 3 simple ear training exercises are – so you can train your ears and become a better mixer.
