Mixing Job/Advice Required (paid)

Hi,
Long story cut short - I usually use a an engineer for my mix downs. He does a brilliant job. And my mixing credentials are not advanced enough to recreate his mixes. I'm expected to release music regularly and fairly quickly and the moment, therefore I don't have time to begin learning an advanced mixing technique.
Financially I'm not in a position to pay for the amount of mixes I require.

Expect a huge sigh upon yourselves, but I've recently invested in EZ Mix. Feel free to sigh.

I'm looking for somebody who (A) - owns EZ Mix along with some of the add ons, (I'll give more details via PM messages), and (B) - feels they can offer me a list as well as some advice, of the best presets to use when trying to recreate some of the songs, mixed by my engineer, (which will be provided). Instead of me wasting time as well as buggering things up.

I'm fully aware that the mixes will not be 100% identical, I'm simply looking for the best advice via skilled, experienced engineers.

Pm me for more details.
Thanks.

You want to learn, good.

If you'd need a drumpart (without being a drummer) would you buy a drumset and learn drumming.. or simply get a drummer in and a crate of beer?

If you'd need brainsurgery.. would you buy the equipment and operate yourself? If you'd need a child.. would you grow a womb.. or look for a woman? (or -if you ARE a woman- get a boy to donate his ...err...part)

There are times when you want to expand your abilities.. and times when you just hire. And the inbetween where you still hire someone but can appreciate the work done much more and you're more able to voice your wishes.

Not to turn you down, but mixing is not learnt in one or two years, okay? Keep that in mind and my best wishes for you.
