Are there any things you do regularly that are counterintuitive (such as cutting the low lows from bass to make it bigger in the mix)? If not, can you give some examples of things you had to do to make it work that really suprised you?
Nothing comes to mind. I can't think of anything counterintuitive. I just keep tweaking until something works, if I go the opposite way and it works, I smile and move on. Sorry, i'm no help on this one.
