    hi guys ive been recording for a while now in cubase but am now ready for the mix, which i have no experience so i wanted to turn to u gurus for some direction. I will not be doing mixing in cubase since i have an external mixing console on my soundcard so im now in the process of preparing the songs to be mixed in the other mixer. almost all my songs i made with no regard to levels and stuff put a bunch of compressors and turned down master faders. Throughout all my songs theres clipping, and just horrible mixes in general. So im starting now on 1 song and started by removing all compressors and set all levels in mixer including master fader at 0db. Is this right should all levels in mixer be at 0db including master? and make changes just to volumes of vsts and audio tracks? Im thinking maybe a rational way to approach is going one by one with audio wav/vst instrument and lowering the volume till its under the clipping, do u guys agree? and how much should they be under clipping? right under clipping/half way to clipping... ne advice much appriciated, thnks
