    All faders down... (or at least all channels muted)

    Then bring up your chosen dominant level-maker to whatever level you like to start at (for me, that's the kick --> -6dB)... and go from there!

    Volume/level is too often overlooked. Get everything sitting right with the faders. Lower all faders; and then start with the kick… Raise to peak around -6dB. Then mix in the snare by ear - a...
