I don’t know if this forum is the most appropriate to ask this questions but since Ardour got me into mixing and this community seems nice I’ll give it a shot.
Recently I acquired a pair of Mackie CR-X studio monitors to get a more faithful mix. I came across something strange when I started experimenting with them.
Even though my room acoustics is far from ideal, is it normal for the monitors to sound slightly off centered?
I mean, I didn’t actually measured the distance between each of the monitors and myself, but I thought that the difference shouldn’t be so noticeable.
I use Cadence to connect my Linux system to the audio interface. What I’m doing is manually trying to center my monitors using the balance in my system’s sound output.
Do any of the more experienced users year has any thoughts on this? I would like to learn. I should note that I’m not trying to build an ideal studio, just trying to figure out if the equipment might be faulty or not?
Thank you in advanced.
