im kinduva newb to home recording. ive done some good mixes and i use cool edit pro. im getting better at it, but a question i have is about mixing. is ther any "standard" way of doing it? like get drums to a cerain level, guitar,...etc. ive had no one to show me the basics, and i normally just adjust volume and pan stuff until it sound s good to me. a good method but it takes so much time and is frustrating. using cool edit pro, is whats the best level for each kind of instrument.? like i have drums at +4 volume panned 25 to the left and then guitar at -5 volume panned 25 to the right. seems like ive just got everything out of wack....its always a mess. and i spend hours trying to get it right. any help?
