Agree on many of the tips given in the thread.
My best technique is to place/plan parts in dimension before tweaking tracks.
You know: levels, panning. Layers of stereo (i.e soft synths) becomes muddy,
make a priority list.
Tips for users of URS eq's and the like:
start using eq's in a normal way again. I took the advices about only subtract
when dealing with digital eq's, but with good plugs, proper levels:
- go back to normal.
