TIP #2 - Side Chain Ducking - This is one of my favorite mix techniques to create separation from conflicting instruments and frequencies.
TIP #3 - Pan Arrangement - Arrangement is usually just thought of as the movement between sections or themes in a song. However, you can have mixing elements like pan/stereo imaging play into the arrangement as well.
TIP #4 - Carving Out Home Frequencies - I like to take a very common practice of paining frequencies by using an equalizer to cut frequencies, but I work backwards. I find the most important element(s) of my mix and then carve around those cutting frequencies of other instruments.
TIP #5 - Limiting Important Sounds - The use of a limiter seems to be a taboo thing these days. Most of use are taught to only use limiters on drums and in the mastering process. But sometimes using a little of limiting on a lead or bass goes a long way
