what should it look like at the drop? iv heard people say it should be like a smiley face because our ears are more sensetive to mid range frequencies but not sure if this is true. i was wondering if anyone could post a picture of their analyser on a good mix

it depends on the style of tune really. take a tune you liek, stick it in your daw, and put a spectrum on it. then youl see a good mix!

Yeahh and don't rely to much on the spectrum analyzer, sometimes best is to just listen. If it sounds good, then leave it like it is.

the "smiley" face spectrum is supposed to be used for live situations I believe.

i'd imagine it should have a pretty level field of frequencies :)
