I just finished a recording of my band, and it's 24 tracks of drums and overlapping guitars. What do I do first?! Do I normalize all of the tracks first? Then do I adjust levels? Then do I tweak EQ? Or do I compress/expand/limit/whatever first? Uggh, I've always sort of just "wung it" (past tense of wing it) when mixing, but I'd like to know what to really do first that won't limit my options as I go, if you know what I mean. Most of the time I do so much crud to all of my music that it gets muddy and I wish I could hit a reset button and start all over.
