If that's cell phone territory for u, you either need new monitors, or get your ears checked, measure your room with REW might also be a good idea, not to be funny but the track sounded like it had 5 loudness buttons in serial on (remember them from the old stereo?)
The DC is probably residing in one of the samples
Ex GF is ear piercing territory / Tinittus dead spots the metalic 4k 7k and 10k area.
"Boosting for air" feels like getting needles stung in your eardrum or being made to chew tinfoil for people with more sensitive hearing
Regarding the low end, your speakers probably can't play the lowest octave hence you missed shitloads of mud that takes over on a full range system
It's not all bad, but easy on the smiley curve... It gets overdone easily

I have doubled checked on my HiFi and Car stereo too but I have a hard time picking out whats wrong other than the entire sound is muddy, unclear and the synths isnt standing out. basically its the same for all the tracks i make and its been a problem for a decade indepdent on the monitor situation, could be something wrong with my ears after early 20s clubbing and djeing.
yeah 20 years get to your eardrums, AKG240 is half decent just missing the really low end, hence you dial in too much to compensate and it's too much when played elsewhere.

Same here, and I have the exact same problem, but I try counter it early by referencing a lot to something that has the low end I want.. Really takes away some of the enjoyment of actually making music when I have to mix with such a puny bass for it to sound OK elsewhere.

your not alone JEO, it happens a lot, and for the kicker some even add MAXBASS and the whole track becomes one rumble fest.
Luckily there are good filters who can shelve, but it also affects higher octaves, because of the harmonics

Really like the corner desk approach evo8. Actually your setup pretty much looks exactly like what I am trying to do now.

I have a half corner desk from Ikea and have been thinking about getting an extension to it so I can put some stuff over to the left side like you have.

Need to get off my ass and install one of those slide out keyboard / mouse platforms too so I can put the MIDI keyboard on my desk in front of me instead of over to the side.

Very nice

Im not happy yet with said nom, really want the Dominion 1 to finish it off, P6 will be too costly to justify.....

thanks - yeah i was just gonna go with a straight-forward table and get another table to the side but spotted this yoke on amazon and thought it would work out nicely for ergonomic purposes

the keyboard shelf sits a little low so i might redrill the brackets to raise it up a bit

Desk is by Piranha Trading in case anyone is wondering - seems sturdy enough. Had a manufacturing defect whereby the thread for one of the feet was fucked up - had to rethread it with a tap but apart from that its grand

What's the little black controller-looking thing sitting on top of your UFX, evo8?
