Mixing music you've produced and recorded

Hi Vance,

thanks for taking the time for this Q+A.

I was wondering that how do you keep yourself fresh when mixing music when you've heard the tracks countless of times during producing and/or recording them?
Do you sometimes start from faders zero or just keep on working the balance you've created before?

Best

Strangely, I'm in the midst of that at the moment.. I produced a record that i think I can't mix.. too inside it.. so it's on pause for now.. luckily the artist is in no hurry..
If I record it, I record to the mix, ie I put all the faders at 0 and never move them either on my desk or in PT's. That way I'm always moving in the right direction, towards mix day.
But, I've zero'd a mix more times than I care to admit. It's just a part of the process. A good walk around the cemetery out back helps sometimes. A serious perspective adjuster.. if you get my drift. (;-)>
