    Hi there, I have a template set up in Studio One for mixing. I have all my tracks which are then sent to their own group bus and folder. Everything is colour coded and I use colours that I associate with the sound source, for e.g. Bass = Red for danger! And so on. This is my starting point and from there I will decide what is needed as I go through a mix. I don't always use EQ and Compression on tracks just for the sake of it but if needed I will usually go subtractive EQ then compression then additive EQ if needed. Quite a lot of the time instead of using additive EQ I will use saturation to bring out upper harmonics of an instrument. I always start with drums first and then I move onto Bass and will usually leave vocals until the end. I have a picture to demonstrate.
