    Another way I’ve made a “reference” at times without needing a dedicated reference speaker is to stand just outside the studio door and listened to the master (or mix). Also, playing things softly can be very revealing: What sort of details do you miss? What details remain salient?

    I will turn down a questionable soft passage in the monitor, to see if the vocal still comes through and you can understand the lyrics.
