    I wanted to add that one of the links within the 50 Mix Tips article refers to the website of legendary producer Dave Pensado. His video tutorials are quick to the point and are gold. I would encourage everyone to check it out.

    I've copied and pasted the bits that I really need to pay attention to, saves having to scroll through that whole list all the time :)

    Just gave it a quick read; w/ #31 are they talking about designing the drums and bass first, or just working on mixing them down? I usually start w/ designing my pads and try leaving breathing room in them to give the drums and bass some breathing room, altho I still somewhat suck on those two :p. I just like using the pads as a "glue" to give the track a coat of definition and I'd have a hard time starting from the bass and drums w/o a good pad.

    I'm pretty sure it's just relating to mixdowns.

    By no means am I a DnB producer, I just signed up to the forum to say thank you to all of you for the extremely positive feedback. Glad I can help in some way :)

    EDIT: I wrote this article.
