The Mountain

Do you sit down to mix and feel like the task is so large that you just can’t bear to begin? It can be daunting, especially if there is a lot to sort out or any re-conceiving to do. When you don’t know what to start with, choose the most obvious and menial. It could be grouping drums, rolling off rumble, listening for phase issues, tuning stuff, muting stuff -whatever. There is always something obvious to do that doesn’t require inspiration. Do those things. It’ll take time. While you’re at it the music will be infiltrating your brain. At some point the inspiration will strike, and when it does, you’ll have gotten a bunch of useful busy work out of the way and the session will be all nice and organized for you to make your masterful moves.
