When balancing BGV's, I like to monitor at very low volumes, almost inaudible. I find this allows you to get a good balance.

I usually record several bgv tracks, pan and compress them, then send them to their own bus where I'll eq and add fx.  I will normally pull out a few db at around 3k to soften them up a bit so that they don't step on the lead.

Yeah:

I too find myself listening to stuff very quietly. Not just BGV but, I've been listening at a lower level in general for the last couple years. My last room was not so great {in the bottom} and I found it helped keep standing waves from being so loud. My friend Scott at Frontier Recording likes to listen quietly also, and we did a-lot of work together and he got me hooked..

I find myself monitoring at a low level most of the time now also.  When I do crank the mains(for any extended peiod) I usually listen from outside the room.
