    I usually get a quick sense of what I have. I'll sub mix instrument groups into auxes I want to group process (stereo guitars, drums, bgvs and such). I get my lead vocal sounding roughly where i want it (eq and compression) and then move on to drums and bass. Assign VCA's for drums and vocals so I can control certain instrument groups on one fader. From there it's really just whatever grabs my attention as needing work. Ideas usually come to me section by section.
