So, I know a general idea is to keep your mixes peaking at around -3dB on mixes ITB. Some people told me to keep drums peaking at -12dB so there's enough room to put all the other instruments in. Now, if you start mixing drums and bass first, it's relatively easy to anticipate final levels, but my question is, if you start mixing from the vocals and bass, or some other place other than drums, what do you want your levels peaking at, initially? Is -3dB a good final peak for a mix? Too hot? Anything you think I should know, regarding mixing ITB?
