There’s no shortcut, really. Reading articles etc. helps, but practice makes perfect. Just mix, mix, mix! I think I learn new stuff almost every time while mixing.

And yeah, learning to how to use EQ and compressor are really essential skills while starting mixing. :)

Tip #4: Pan.

haha seriously though I agree with nahkaorava: It’s not a one tip does the trick situation. Mixing is such a big deal you pretty much just have to start trying, run into a problem, research the problem, move on, run into another problem, research the problem, and so on and so forth.

Good luck! :)

Tip#7: Tip#0!!! always trust your ears
