mixing in your car
      #1040394 - 29/03/13 04:58 AM
Hello everyone

Just wanted to know if any of you all out there do your main mixing in your vehicle. With auxillary inputs and laptops these days it seems very viable and I've been trying it out with good results (I think).

I think this comes from the fact that I listen to music mostly in my car and am used to it, plus stock it has really good sub-bass. I dont have bad monitoring options at home (Shure SRH940 headphones and yamaha hs80s), but limitations of my room and/or volume in headphones seems to be hinder my mixes (along with the fact i dont regularly listen to music on these system, a big no no, I know)

So if any of you all spend a decent amount of time, not just checking mixes, but doing them in your car please tell me your experience and/or that Im not crazy for wanting to do this for every mix I do.

Thanks!
Rishi

Checking is one thing, but mixing in your car...I think you're on your own there.

Tweaking some mixes might work! I mean, if you know what your listening for, why not! Until the battery runs out that is...

My question is, do you mimic the complete car listening experience, i.e., with the engine running and while driving? The typical bass-rumble might be missing if you didn't, I'd think (unless of course if you tool around in a Bentley).

If the answer is yes, please post where you live and type of vehicle, just to be sure I stay clear if I see it on the road!

LOL yes I thought I would be the odd one out who seriously considers mixing in the car. I'm still going to give it a shot since its those speakers Im most comfortable with. P.S. I'm totally against DWM, and when parked my car is essentially silent (I drive a prius)

Thanks for the responses!

This would make a great commercial. RishiP with his iPad propped up against the dashboard and a bevy of R&B stars crammed in the back. They nail the mix and the car skids away with the music pounding out of the speakers.

Not mixing, but I am sometimes known to drive somewhere with a good view, to help inspire composition. The MacBook line-out goes straight into the car stereo...

They call it dogging around these parts.
