This is a short example video of a mix that was mixed into a compressor at the very start of the session.
I love to mix this way to keep everything in check level-wise during mixing.
This shows how the mix falls apart when it is turned off and the importance of the compressors on the channel inserts and the important mixbus.
Try this next time you mix. Strap a compressor with a ratio of 2:1 with a fast attack and release then proceed to mix. See if you like it or not.
