What's your typical work process?
Editing is crucial for a good track and I try to make that part done first.
Levelling instruments/tracks/busses, than the mixing process. It is a process that comes in waves; equalization, making sure instruments dont fight each other in the frequency spectrum, wich is done with mono compatibility. Compression is added after EQ, in some cases is added before it, sometimes none of them are needed.
After that or during the mixing, effects are added and treated to "sit" where the mix dictates it best. Again making sure they are mono compatible.
When I am happy with the result of the mix, comes the light touch of mastering.
