    Hi guys I realise every tune and therefore every mix is different, but does anybody have any tips or any like 'rules of thumb' that they do on a general level regarding the use of EQ's when mixing dnb. I have pretty much nailed beatmatching now so I'm just wondering about this to make my mixes smoother or better sounding still.

    Cheers

    It all depends on the mix. take away the sounds that are clashing, work the highs and get your hats sounding nice, too much high end is not good in the mix! and gradually work your EQ's down for when you switch so it doesnt seem so sudden!

    every mix is differnt but a general tip is - roll the tops of the highs and mids and switch the bass's
