I really like mixing with headphones. It kinda gives me the "silence" i need. Moreover i really enjoy to work outside with my macbook in the spring/summer to make dialogue editing and re-recording for broadcasting stuff more enjoyable :D.
Tough I really got to know my headphones (Sennheiser HD 25-ii). But there is a but! Especially when it comes to EQ, depth (reverb amount) and bass-compression - i make miss decisions. Moreover I run into a lot of troubles in levelling deep bass sounds, vocals/dialogue, and hi-hats. -> So I always need to fix my mix on studio monitors (Adam 5x)
Now I stumbled upon the Focusrite VRM-Box which everyone except some reviews praise as some kind of holy grail.
But I have some questions:
Anyone, got some good/bad experience with it?
Will it help in not getting tired ears so fast, when i listen through the vrm?
Can I mix trough the vim, or do i just use it to reference the mix every now and then too get a slight feel of how the mix sounds on professional speakers?
Which headphones work best with the vrm-box?
Does it use a lot of cpu/memory or is the simulation emulated in the box?
Does a VRM-Box have a heavy impact on my battery life
Do you know any alternatives to the Focusrite VRM-Box
I know its a lot of questions. I appreciate any help!
