ok, I basically halted where I was at mix wise cause I didn't really know what the hell I was doing ..I went to a whole load of sites and read all kinds of tutorials on mixing and eqing, these are just a few things I can remember offhand. It'd be great if you guys could give your input on these and offer some of your own tips, rules of thumb, or tricks. - When eqing always subtract rather than boost the levels. - There is no right way to eq. or secret forumula. - Kick and Bass always stay's in the middle and is never panned ( how come one of my favorite songs has the kicks and snares panned to left and right and a big fat bass in the middle - Use reverb to place things closer or further back, using wet and dry reverbs. - Try to use the same reverb for most of your effects and have the percussion linked to it's own reverb.
