interesting you should say that, the way i set the tempo for my tracks is by going downstairs and listening to it from far away, then i go back to the tempo and adjust it till the tempo in the room sounds similar to the tempo from downtairs. if the tempo is wrong, it will sound really fast from downstairs. weird sht.
@ AVX23 yes its the same thing bro,
I'm not 100% exactly. Maybe it was kick and bass. But I'm pretty sure that in the bathroom it sounded more like a waltz and on the dancefloor it was more like techno, but still the same track.
edit... Most likely it might be a psychoacoustic kinda thing. Possibly we perceive things differently.
I will investigate this strange relationship of fastness and distance more. Seems very interesting.
