We all learn something from seeing experienced mixers work. The approaches of different mixers varies but it is difficult to pin down exactly how much the differences in the results is down to the techniques used compared to the differences between the music being mixed.
That is the idea behind the Lifeboats Series. One track mixed by six different people. That way the differences between the results are purely differences in the mixing, Its the same track!
Episode 1 Fab Dupont mixes Will Knox’s song in Cubase using only the built in plugins.

Episode 4 is coming soon, Andrew Scheps completes his mix
