I love part 1. The composition and the quality is just mind blowing. Congrats.
I too use headphones for everything (my studio is not the shape or size to use my speakers properly)...
There was a radio programme recently that explored the shift in radio listening from headphones to speakers, describing how people stepped away from purposeful, intense and personal listening to shared experience and doing other things such as eating - making the music a secondary element of the experience.
People even danced to it which they could not with the headsets.....
Back to subject - it can be hard to get things right, but I use the approach that I make it as good as I can on my headphones, then accept that it will generally sound different on every other sound source.
I use Grado SR 325's to record and mix, then Beyerdynamic DT931's to see how it might sound on hi-fi's, then on smaller sennheiser headphones for more general sound.....
And I should mention that Gabriel's Passion is one of my top 2 favorite albums of all time!
QuoteInteresting! So, it means you do all your work just with headphones?
Yes, I haven't used speakers to monitor or mix since 2003. I've listened to music primarily on phones all my life and I've now adapted to using them all time. I know conventional wisdom says that 'you can't mix on phones', but (for me) I much prefer the whole headphone 'experience'.
