Keeping mixes from becoming "crowded".

I've always loved the way your mixes have "space" around the instruments.

What sorta stuff do you do to achieve this?

To keep my mixes from being too crowded I make heavy use of HI-Pass Lo-Pass filters on each instrument to focus only on the desired frequencies and to cut out unwanted "noise " on the top
and rumble and clashing on the bottom. I also mostly just pan left/right/center . I monitor at low level to make sure I hear everything.
