How do y’all go about checking phase on, say, your drum pieces? I guess it’d be the same with guitars, etc. But I’m messing with the drums for 25 Reasons. Just practicing my mixing.
I’m soloing my OHs, smidge of EQ and stuff, getting them to where I like 'em. Then adding the kick and treating with some EQ, maybe compression, then the snare, etc.
So, when I check the phase of, say, the snare with the OHs, is it enough to just listen to snare and OH in isolation and click the phase on the snare and “see what is sounds like” and go with what sounds better?
When do you do that vs zoom in on the wave forms and visually line them up?
This is “somewhat” new territory for me. I understand the general idea behind what happens when things are out of phase, but haven’t caught on yet on how to assess it.
