The article offers information on how to solve mixing problems in the U.S. music industry. Mixing problems include the uneven levels throughout the range of bass frequencies, poor engineering techniques and insufficient detail of mix. These can be corrected through the proper installation of acoustic products to help tighten up impulse response and attenuate room models. Mixing must also be done at lower sound-pressure levels and when mix lacks detail, low-midrange frequencies must be cut.
