Volume of sound during stem mixing

Firstly, on average, the sensitivity of the human ear to higher noise levels largely depends on the frequency of the signal within stem mixing. In other words, different instruments or noises are perceived at different noise frequency levels, even if their levels are identical in terms of instruments.

Secondly, no one has abolished individual physiological characteristics of people. We hear sounds very differently, none of us can accurately know how another person can hear the same sound. Perception can be influenced by seemingly insignificant factors for stem mixing – the growth, size and shape of the cranium and the auricles, age, sphere of activity and even nationality or race.

Thirdly, the addition of the noise levels of the instruments in the music that we create is non-linear. Doubling of noise can occur only when we add two absolutely identical signals with a complete coincidence of the phase. when we add two absolutely identical signals with a complete coincidence of the phase. Even with a slight phase shift, the volume changes will be completely different. And when the instruments are different (in root tone, spectrum, rhythm, level) – it is impossible to predict the total noise level, it can only be measured by experience.

Fourth, music – a phenomenon in time, and hence the noise is not static. That’s why musicians like to talk about “dynamics” (the antonym of “statics”), that is, constant changes and movement. Dynamics in terms of volume refers to a dynamic range, which can be either horizontal (one part louder, the other quieter – sequentially), and vertical (one sound louder, the other quieter at the same time). Accordingly, we hear loud and quiet sounds in the recording not only one after another, but also together, doing stem mixing.

Well, fifth, the one who writes music does not know at what level of volume the listener will listen to it. In stem mixing we focus on our own perceptions through studio monitors, as well as on indicators, spectrum analyzers and so on. But we do not take into account In stem mixing we focus on our own perceptions through studio monitors, as well as on indicators, spectrum analyzers and so on. But we do not take into account the fact that the song can appear in a playlist among absolutely diverse compositions, and that means that discomfort can be caused during both loud and quiet noise levels.

And most importantly – the adaptability of human hearing always leads to the fact that even the loudest, In stem mixing we focus on our own perceptions through studio monitors, as well as on indicators, spectrum analyzers and so on. In stem mixing we focus on our own perceptions through studio monitors, as well as on indicators, spectrum analyzers and so on. But we do not take into account but constant level of sound in a short time begins to be perceived weaker. This is a natural defense reaction of our body. Accordingly, there is no sense in making a person listen to something with a higher noise level – in the end, the effect will be reversed.
