Just a quick tip

I've been working on mixing some songs for my band Day Nine, and I wanted to share a tip that I plan to touch on in a future episode. This is a mixing tip. When mixing an album, I find it's best to mix one song until it's finished. Then, when that song is done, make as many copies of the session file as you have songs to mix. Then, just plug the files from the next song into the appropriate tracks. You'll not have to worry about eq's and gates and compressors for most of the mix, as all this information should be present from the previous mix. The main things you'll have to focus on will be the volume levels, and making any subtle tweaks to the mix that need done. It's a real time saver.
