There is definitely a step by step process to follow when you mix. Even with slight variation depending on the genre, style and complexity of the song the steps are pretty similar most of the time.
What are these steps you say? Let me tell you!
1. Critical Listening and Organization
2. Balancing and Panning
3. Grouping and Simplification
4. EQ, Compression and Saturation on Busses
6. EQ, Compression and Saturation on Individual Tracks
8. Reverb and delay
It’s really as simple as that. If you follow those steps, and the tips and tricks inside Step By Step Mixing you’ll become a better and more efficient mixer in no time.
