When I first started out, I was obsessed with “fixing” my mix. I’d focus on the EQ, solo a track and go to town, cutting any nasty frequency I found.
Problem is, if you go looking, you’ll always find something to fix. I know I did. And I ended up with boring, flat mixes.
I’ve since learned that the pros don’t mix like this – and neither should you. Shift your mixing mindset from defence to offence and get to pro mixes faster.
