Guido tum Suden

    Since I haven't learned mixing from someone I have a special approach. I usually push some faders up and listen in on some points of the song, so I know what's it about. Then I go track for track and listen to it to find out if it sounds like I expect it to sound. If not (like in most cases) I change it with EQ, Compression and more often Transient Designer and Saturation. Sometimes I even insert effects at that point e.g. when it's clear that the snare needs a special reverb. Only after that I push up the faders to see what I get. Then it's time for all kinds of effects.
