there's a lot of disinformation in this forum. a LOT.

and there's a lot of talented people, that actually know what they're talking about, and have made success with their knowledge. But they're hidden in a pile of random thoughts from apprentice audio engineers.

Well I guess then this calls for a thread "The most useful tips I got at Gearslutz", to dig the most useful stuff upfront.
Maybe you could start by telling what the most valuable information was that you got here!

i do music for tv, and i mix it myself, but i'm not the best mixing engineer in the world.

"99 percent of mixing is moving the faders up and down until you find where it sounds good" - steve albini

just get it to sound right at the source and you're done

Back on topic. That loooong thread on gain structure ITB and especially metering and watching out for overloading between plugins - also LPF the highs to help create depth perception were great tips.

There have been so many things (over the last 25 years) that have "taken my mixes to the next level" (I'm still not where I want to be yet, but I'm always getting closer - zeno's paradox), but I guess the most significant one was one of the earliest I learned:

EQ instruments in the mix - not solo'd.

I spent less time reading and more time mixing.
