"Do I have enough low end in my mix?"Enter reference mixes. Reference mixes can serve as the roadmap to a great mix, and they can help answer questions when you find your ears feeling confused.In this pureMix.net Exclusive, Multi Award Winning Engineer, Fab Dupont explains how he uses reference mixes to establish a baseline while he is mixing in different rooms, after long sessions, and as a tool to calibrate his own ears each day.Fab will explain:The importance of using a reference mixHow to choose a reference mixHow to use a reference mixReference mix workflowLearn how to find and use your own reference mixes from Fab Dupont, only on puremix.net
