After conducting multiple mix tests and comparisons I had formed a good idea of how I would approach the mix. I would be mixing ‘in the box’ in my own project studio with monitoring I am familiar with. Learning from previous experience, I get much better results while working on monitoring I know well, than in a studio with better equipment but monitors I don’t know.
The main body of compression and EQ in the mix was done with the UAD plugins I had been working with a lot. Surgical edits and filtering as well as multi-band processing would be used in moderation.
