A brief insight to some mixing techniques we use that could help you achieve a better end product.
First - Initial Thoughts
Simply write down your initial thoughts upon listening for the first time, and what direction you feel you want the track to go in.
Write down how you want each section to make you feel, and any specific effects you think could work with fresh ears.
This is a simple process that is often overlooked and is great at laying down your initial instincts for the track, instead of figuring out half way through the mix.
There is only one chance for a first impression so you must capitalize on it and capture your ideas from the start before your vision of the mix gets distracted.
