Last year I responded to a Facebook post that was arguing the point of mixing at low levels is beneficial. My argument was that I mix loudly. But, I actually failed to explain my point and realized I missed the point of the whole argument. In reality, I do mix at low levels. Or some would say at medium levels because I do like it where I can hear. What I like to do is switch my mix to my studio monitors then to a mono mixcube and mix inside Studio One with the Mono button enabled. I turn up the volume to where I can hear effectively, get my mix about where I want it, the crank the Gain knob on the Slate Digital FG-X, and I make that mix loud as a I can get it while sounding badass. Once the mix gets louder I then turn down the volume on my speakers. That is how I mix LOUD at low volume levels.
