    Excellent post, which I will be following.

    I had never considered a mixing toolkit, but it's a great idea that I shall adopt.

    What else, besides these lessons should I include in my toolkit?

    Peace.

    Actually this link contains a lot of "between the lines" informations. Take those articles as an inspiration. I like them a lot, great stories and very nice explanations of processing and mixing techniques sometimes. The "eSub" tagged ones have to be paid but most of them are free anyway.
