Headphone Mix

A mix that is created in the studio to provide monitoring for the musicians/performers via headphones.

A headphone mix may be generated inside a DAW or using an external mixer. In either case, a pre-fader send is generally used, so that the engineer/producer in the control room can adjust the faders controlling the mix they hear, without affecting the headphone mix of the performers.

In many sessions, a seperate headphone mix will be fed to each musician so that they can hear the elements and blend they each require in order to perform their best. In some cases, each musician will have a small mixer of their own so that they can each control their own mix and levels.
