    Hi Kris. Wondering if this forum group gets activity!

    Did you get an answer to this one?

    I have had this. Im assuming you are monitoring yourself?

    What I have found is the 'sweet spot' found while self tracking is misleading, because we often are also getting a bit of the instrument itself.

    Im no pro, but found that;

    - closed backs obv
    - has to be pretty loud , then turn down for when think right for the take
    - Try to be clean on the input ( not much process colour on the in because we 'know its not going to be perfect )
    - avoid low cutting too much - might be tempted in the cans when self monitoring to low cut - but it will sound more low because of the, say, body of a guitar on us
    - More mics ( if poss ) for choices of blend after once all phase corrected

    Again, just a singer somngtrier here but those helped me!
