Default Things I learned on Reddit...

• 4dB of dynamic range is too much. If you have too much dynamic range and your music is played over the sound system at Target, all people will hear are the transients.
• It is perfectly normal to mix all your music for Spotify, because Spotify will always exist and be the primary way people listen to music.
• -8 LUFS is the minimum recommended level for a finished track. Preferably hotter. This has nothing to do with the Loudness Wars; it’s just how music sounds.
• Headphones are a great way to mix because they take the room out of the equation.
• Bass traps are the first and most important acoustical treatment you should plan for a room.
• Foam doesn’t do a thing. You might as well put egg crates or paint on a wall.
• Any room that is not rectangular is a problem and necessitates advice from others on Reddit as to where to put the speakers.
• Autotuning every individual note of a singer’s performance is not only the expectation these days, but necessary because no one sings in perfect tune.
• It’s a good idea to compress the two-buss before you send something to mastering.
• The ideal mastering is a track that’s so good nothing else needs to be done.
• A 9-band equalizer built into a Behringer mixer is useful for “ringing out” an SR system.
• The more plugins you have, the better an engineer you’ll be.
• There are many recording studios willing to hire young engineers off the street. Anyone who tells you otherwise must have an agenda.
• The best way to buy a musical instrument is online based on advice from Internet forums.
• Education is a waste of money because there’s so much good information on the internet.

They are a very good way to check for some problems in a recorded track,
because they remove your current room from the equation. I also use them
while recording on location or any other room I do not control.

Close. There is a superfluous "not" in the sentence.

True...

You mean people don't all do it that way? <Grins, ducks and runs for cover>

<Grin> They may have a point, and many are trying to prove it.

According to one post I recently saw on Reddit, the best way to buy an
instrument is to go to a Mom & Pop shop with the intent of testing the
instrument and buying online. Then when you see that the owners genuinely
love music and are so helpful, you pay a little more and buy from them anyway.
At least that was the result of this single post.
