Mix preparation

Hi Andrew, and thanks for doing this, hope I‘m not too late.
What kind of preparation „grunt work“(either by you or trusted assistants) happens to the files you get, before you get to properly mix?
I‘m talking about phase and level checks, hpf, lpf, hunting down resonances, checking for unnecessary stereo, etc.

I do all of my own mix prep, all the way from ordering tracks and color coding.

If I'm getting files bounced out from another DAW I will definitely check for mono/stereo sources and split the files accordingly.

Using HPFs and things like that are just part of my general mixing process. I feel like if you treat doing anything sonically as just a mix prep stage, you're not listening in context and you might actually be messing stuff up. If things need HPFs or resonances tamed, it will be obvious as you mix and it will just be part of the process.
