hi - in the mix part 2 segment jack douglas stated that his final mix is performed through a bose wave radio
i like this idea - is anyone else doing this, if so - what's your workflow and how is it working for you
Instead of using AwfulTones on the mix console I got hold of an old mono 'ghettoblaster' and wired the line in to one of the monitor selectors and use this as a mix balance check and mono compatibility check. I've found it to be invaluable to find things which become masked by the limited response or out of balance when in mono.
very cool - what specific getto-blaster are you using
An old JVC cassette/radio unit from the 1970's.
They can be found in garage sales and kerbside cleanups these days. Usually the cassette machanism is busted but so long as the amp and speaker are working OK then you can use it.
I bought the very cheapest CD PLAYER boom box I could find that also plays MP3 files on disc. I can burn a disc of a final mix in MP3 format (or CD audio) and test it through very crappy 2.5 inch speakers on it. Brand not important as long as it is cheap and typical.
