People are always wowed at my mixes from freakin' 2 tracks (which drive me crazy. luckily I don't get too many of them). I readily share my process, but people don't like to use it. I guess it's hard to do well or something.

Hi chris, super new to Gearslutz infact I've made an account specifically to reply to this....
Are we talking about side-chaining the vocals to a compressor on the instrumental such as a Waves F6 so the beat ducks when ever the vocals are playing to create space?
Thanks for all the info also!
