  38. A: If it's mixing, i will import everything and arrange it accordingly( track order, groups, color coding and some minor routing) and listen to the song and get a basic filling of what is going on. I always ask for a reference ,so i will listen to it as well and then write some notes about the things that need to be done. Then hands on the desk and get a rough mix.
