How to make a balanced mix in both mono and stereo?

Hi Josh :slight_smile:

I’m having a struggle with making a mix that will be balanced in both stereo and mono. a lot of times an instrument that is balanced in stereo suddenly would feel too quiet, and when I fix the volume in mono it would feel too loud in stereo. that would mostly happen with instruments that have wide stereo (like pads) , or have stereo movement, or even just panned . What should I do?

Thank you very much and have a lovely day!

Hey Odelya!

That tends to be the way it is with mono - there may some small tricks you can try, but the most important thing to me is to get the mix sounding and feeling right in stereo.

Thank you very much for your answer :slight_smile:
