Mixing is a big part of the production process, and it is important to get it right. Over-processing your mix can lead to some very undesirable results such as distortion, harshness and lack of clarity. In this blog post we will discuss how you can avoid over-processing your mix by understanding what causes it and how to fix it!

The most common cause of over-processing is excessive use of compression. Compression can be a great tool for controlling the dynamics of a mix, but it can also lead to unwanted results if used in excess. Another common cause of over-processing is using too many plugins on individual tracks. When you add too many plugins, each one starts to have a smaller and smaller impact, and eventually they all start to blend together and sound muddy.

By following these tips, you can avoid over-processing your mix and create a balanced and clear sounding production. Thanks for reading!
