Hi all, I'm a rookie producer and audiophile who is slowly looking for ways to improve the hardware and software that I use for my music production. I had consistently heard about how Reference 4 would help with producing and mixing and was looking to try it out and get it. At the same time however, I was looking to utilise a system-wide equaliser software called Equalizer APO to EQ the frequency response of the headphones that I'm using for better audio. Admittedly, I'm not entirely sure on how a system-wide audio equaliser would affect my production in my DAW in the first place and I'm not sure if I would still have the system-wide audio equaliser on when I'm producing. For the purposes of music production in headphones, would it conflict to have both the system-wide audio equaliser software and Reference 4? Or, are there some other interactions or considerations between these two types of software that I'm missing? I'm thinking that the two softwares are for different purposes entirely, but I was wondering if anyone would be able to offer more clarity.
Apologies for the long post, thanks for reading!
