    In a nutshell, the basics is what makes a good mix. Gain staging, EQ, and smart use of compression.

    I actually noticed that Mike Senior and his Mix Rescue articles mention the "trivial" things a lot.

    I've watched/read a bunch of this guys stuff and it's pretty good. He does plug his book a lot in the links and some of the text, but it's free. He does sell some training though, but hey if it helps him make some stuff free I'm ok with it.

    Like someone mentioned in the Comments on the YT page......"Pensado's Place".
    His YT videos and mixing tips are always spot on, even if he's talking about a particular plug or piece of gear or with a particular guest.

    The small problem with this other guy's video is that simply telling people "check your gain structure, EQ etc".....doesn't really help newbs any more than telling them to use XYZ plug. Also, the reason the mixing pros don't dwell on basics, is because there is an assumption that if you're really at that stage where you're going for the "killer mix".....you should already have a pretty good handle on basics.....so pro discussions turn more toward nuances of doing this or that, and minor subtleties like "this mic was used instead of that one"....which is where a lot of those guy's heads are at, and not necessarily stuck the basics.

    Again...."Pensado's Place" is great, and not just a lot of fluff about pimping gear and whatnot....he really does get into specifics, but again, very often the specifics are touching on subtleties and not the broad stroke fixes (like what a lot of newbs tend to look for).
