I have listed this video in this forum as it has so much information for beginners as well as those that have intermediate skills in mixing and mastering. This video was made by Dan Baker and Published on Oct 4, 2017. It is a complete recording process, with drums, bass, electric guitars, keys and vocals, with the necessary procedures for each. This video covers in real time the process using analog as well as digital systems.

1. Mic Placement.
2. How to start your recording process.
3. How to start your mixing process.
4. How and why you use certain plugins for each track.
5. How to bring up your track levels.
6. How to make each track fit into its own space.
7. How to make your vocals ride on top of the mix.
8. Why you should NEVER take the attitude of "we'll just fix that in post op".
9. Why you never want to master your own mix.

Plus a hundred other useful tips. This video is best viewed using headphones so you can see the small changes Dan makes during mixing and mastering.
