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.

Interviews/Stories
Secrets Of The Mix Engineers Index

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.

Can I be totally egomaniacal and link to my own articles? I think they're pretty valuable info, but it's kind of self-agrandizing.
