just one example (not necessarily true for your process of course), :
lots of people cut low-mids like mad to achieve clarity/hifi/modern sounds...but if you suck out all the low mids across an entire mix youll get thin, cold sonic-picture. Perhaps just notice your sonic intentions with eq as you go along, and dial it back a bit with each move? a little goes a long way in the grand scheme of things


The eq-ing starts very early and goes out of hands quickly. I use VST:s and samples, so I can't control the frequency range using a mic. Therefore I find I have to eq a ton, but at the same time the different tracks start loosing body, many times becoming hollow and the opposite to rich/warm.
