    Personally, I wouldn’t bounce the tracks before giving them to another mixer. As long as you don’t clip on the way in, you will be fine. If you bounce with compression and eq, then you have committed to what you have done, which may not be to the mixer’s liking. But if you give the raw recorded file to another mixer, they will be able use whatever gear they have (outboard or plug-in) to manipulate the signal the way they want.

    Even if you are doing the mix yourself, I would be doing the compression and eq as plugins on the channel rather than bouncing down. The only time I would bounce down was if I was using outboard gear that I may not always have available, or if I was getting performance issues on the computer due to too much processing.
