Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to vibe out to the track for a while, trying to catch a vibe or an idea about what I believe it has to be done next. I go deep into editing the vocals, volume automations, tuning, breaths, etc... Set up a rough mix for the Instrumental stems, just to have a guide for the vocals, and from there, i just keep building each other, until it sounds solid. And thats for Mixing, obviously there are many steps to get to the last one, depending on the track I'm working on.
