Mixing Backing Tracks

Wondering if anyone has any experience mixing live backing tracks and feels like sharing their wisdom?

My assumption is that different considerations are needed for a playback mix to translate (not to mention blend with live musicians) effectively.

Best case scenario I’m looking for real world, tried and tested direction on things like EQ and compression severity, sub bass and using HPF/ LPF, bounce levels and the use of finalizing plugs (Slate FGX etc) and mono vs stereo.
Not to mention anything else that’s vitally important I’m missing.

Any positive info would be helpful and I appreciate the time should anyone decide to chime in.

Cheers lads!
