We scour our mailbox for the most deserving recipient of the Attack readership’s collective advice in the first experiment in crowdsourced answers to all kinds of production and creative problems. No query is too small, no question too personal…

This month we discuss the idea of teaching ourselves to hear more accurately. Can you train your ears, or are some people just born with better hearing? Join the discussion in the comments below.


My question for the reader help article is this. Can you teach yourself to hear better? Other producers I know seem to be able to pick out problems in a mix better than I can or hear the effects of things like EQ and compressors easier. My monitors (KRK Rokit 8) should be good enough so I think the problem is me. I obviously don’t have the “golden ears” people talk about! Are there any ways to improve?
