    Hey Luuk!

    Great question, that for some reason is never addressed in the large ocean of mixing lessons out there.

    I have been struggling with this myself. Even if it's band I have recorded myself, where the drums, bass and guitars are recorded at the same time, the sound is different from song to song, even though I I copy the exact setting for the rhythm instruments. If it's a 3 song ep, I usually prefer to mix en one pro tools session, but for more songs than that I usually make separate sessions for each song. I used to worry about this a lot, but listening to some of my favourite albums today, I can hear that the dynamics of the different songs is different. I never noticed this before, so likely neither will the client.
