During the mixing process strive for the best sound you can get
without using any processors on the master bus,
Don't compress the mix.
Don't normalize the mix.
Try not to limit the mix.
Make sure there is no clipping - have your mix peak at around -3 dB . -6 dB
If possible, don't do fade-ins and fade-outs during mixing;
This can be done smoothly and easily in the mastering stage.
"Don't compress the mix?" Why not? What if it sounds good? I regularly use compression during mixing, sometimes eq too. "If it sounds right--it's right!" Joe Meek
These are the best tips to prepare a mix to the mastering session! Great job! Hope everybody follow that!
