Yeah, you can mix on anything if you have some idea of what your
monitors are doing, and what your room is doing.

Of course the problem with that, or listening to a favorite track for
comparison, is that we can really have no way of knowing what our
monitors and rooms are doing without some analysis. And we have no way
of knowing what our reference CD is doing because we have no idea what
quirks were in that CD's mix and mastering rooms.

At the end of the day, I do use a few very well mixed CDs as a
reference, and I have to hope/trust they are reasonably flat.

The one real gotcha that is going to hurt you is low end. If you have
monitors with 6 inch woofers, they simply can't reproduce the low end,
and you could get into trouble.

Having said that, inexperienced recordists are going to have lots of
other problems with their tracks, as well, like phase issues and such,
so I say just hang some mics and have some fun.

If the music is so important to you that you want and expect
professional results, hire a professional.
