A must-have mixing assistant plug-in, MixChecker transforms studio monitors into classic reference monitors or one of several consumer devices to instantly improve mixes.
“You Mix for the People”
Mixing music or other content for consumer consumption is an art in itself, one that takes time to master.
MixChecker will save you time when inserting it as the last plug-in in the master output track of any of your DAW projects to transform studio monitors into classic reference monitors or one of several consumer devices at the press of a (virtual) button.
Working with MixChecker is simple.
Straightforward functions are separated into two specific sections:
– Simulation accesses acoustic models of several consumer devices and classic reference monitors. Simply select the device you want to check the sound of your mix on by pressing a single button clearly labelled with an instantly-recognizable icon. Cycling through these buttons brings about an authentic overview of how the mix should sound across a variety of realistic, real-world listening devices. Not all studio monitors deliver a flat frequency response however, hence the:
– Compensation control section. Select from four more clearly-labelled buttons to tell MixChecker that you are using average 5” or 8” speakers or headphones and listen to the resulting sound change accordingly (although high-quality studio monitor owners should simply select OFF).
The BYPASS button turns off all processing, ensuring that the signal passes through MixChecker without being treated.
I use it on every session, I do! It’s uniquely useful, incredibly well thought and implemented. I used to use a lot more sources for checking my mixes, but now it’s just my main speakers and MixChecker.
I use MixChecker quite a lot as it saves me time running around the studio playing files on iPads… etc. I normally give myself a day and leave the mix alone then I go back and use MixChecker to see where I’m at.
