Was up till the break of dawn both days this weekend working on a song. It’s just a piano with two harmony strings and a nuphase piano lead, simple by y’all’s standards. So, it sounds nice, pat self on back, put it up on the family/friend youtube site, then listen to it on my mono laptop … it S*CKS!!!
The frequency-volume relationship is ALL messed up in mono. The lead voice turned SO LOUD, it’s like being hit in the head with a sledgehammer every time a note is played. And there were a lot of other tonal balance things. It sounds nice enough on little desk top computer speakers (stereo) but as soon as it goes to mono, Fuggedaboudit.
I’m going to have to sort through how to prevent this … most of my Motif voices are fairly wide stereo, and they sound like Cr*p when panned to mono - all phasy and stuff. I’m sure I’ll figure a way, but for now I’m just tired and quizzed off.
Maybe I can put a note on “the liner” like John Lennon did with his single “Cold Turkey” (he wrote on it, “Warning: play LOUD”) … “Warning: Play in STEREO”!!
