Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually have a good listen to the song and listen to what's wrong or what could be improved. Then I do a balance of the mix (volumes, panning) After this I usually tend to EQ the tracks and start adding busses/sends. I will compress where needed and glue the mix as well as possible. After a final mix is complete I will send 24 bit WAV to the artist to see if they like it and would like any changes. After approval I will send the 24 bit WAV and mp3 + Masters to the client.
