    New folks may not understand all the terms that older folks used.

    The only string I use is to tie my wallet shut so I dont throw money away needlessly thinking that more expensive means better.

    And by "everywhere else" you mean the Honda Civic in his driveway? He only tried the mix in his car. Nowhere else as far as I can tell. I may be wrong about the car, though. It might not be a Honda.

    You would thinks so, right? But they also cause other problems which are significant.

    I wish I could mix only on headphones. The world would be a better place. There would be no need to treat rooms or buy monitors. And there would be no recording studios and room designers. My life would be simple, although a lot of people would be unemployed.

    You can save even more money by using a money clip instead of a wallet. Wallets cost money. Too much in my opinion. Just carry a money clip with the big bills on the outside. Or inside if you live in a dodgy neighborhood. The clip will also hold your license and a credit card if you are so inclined. Personally, I think you can save even more money by not driving. But, hey, I'm a recluse.

    The only reason to treat your room is so you can listen to the stereo from speakers not headphones.

    I treat my room for the cancer risk and the fire hazard. I'm dying slowly from a chronic heart condition and I'd like to choose how I go. It's all about control.

    Wait...You said you went to "Uni" during the late 50's or early 60's. That makes you a Brit, I assume. Isn't like 3AM where you are? Shouldn't you be asleep?

    yes
    but at my age it is hard to sleep
    apnea makes it even harder to keep a normal schedule

    how do you treat a cancer risk in a room?

    I use HEPA filters to remove the pm2.5 particles but not bass traps for cancer
    should we do more than that ?

    fire hazard?? ban smoking
    get a fire extinguisher rated ABandC

    Definitely didn't mean to start a battle.

    Just wanted some opinions. Actually heard the song in 5 places; two different car stereos, 2 different pairs of headphones, a boombox, and my monitors. No booming "C" notes anywhere 'cept for the monitors. Again, commercial release "C" notes don't really boom on them, but they do a tiny bit.

    Monitors are M-Audio BX8-D2's
    Headphones are Beyer Dynamic DT-880s and 770s (primarily use the 770s just for tracking though)
    Cars were Toyotas

    Anyway, watching my eq's when the notes pass has no effect, and the peak volume meters don't rise; so it's definitely a room/table/speaker problem. Also, when I walk around the room, the "C" doesn't seem to boom anymore, its only when sitting at the desk, or very near proximity.

    I'll post pictures of the studio to see if anyone has any suggestions.

    Thanks for your help.
