Along these lines, you need to ensure your listening space is as exact as could be allowed.
How about we consider it along these lines. If you somehow happened to ace your melody PERFECTLY – with impeccable equalization, commotion, and energy – however your room is inadequately tuned, it doesn’t make a difference!
Your tune may sound astounding in your space, yet it will self-destruct wherever else.
On the off chance that, for example, your room has additional bass develop, at that point your low end will appear to be more intense than it really is. So in the event that you get your low end to adjust flawlessly in your room, what’s it going to seem like wherever else?

3: Check the Levels.
Before you ricochet (export) your blend, you need to ensure that nothing is cutting. Computerized twisting can frequently be tranquil when you are blending, yet amid the acing stage the majority of the little defects in your blends become self-evident.
Ensure you have headroom on ALL of your faders. Any channel, buss, or send needs to avoid the red.
