Listened to an old Mark Rubel interview on Working Class Audio last night while folding laundry. Three things I want to remember from this:

  • Don’t look at the screen when you’re mixing. Use your ears.
  • Don’t buy gear. Buy capabilities.
  • He paid for all of his studio gear in cash.

The Apple USB-C to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter through the Koss KSC75 headphones (modded to use a cheap headband) sounds very good playing Apple Music, but kick drums and bass notes lack the muscle behind them that the Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS has. There’s just more power in the XSs amp, which makes sense.

This might not work for all cases, but it’s potentially handy enough that I’m trying it everywhere: How to turn off in-app review requests on iPhone, iPad, and Mac
