    I subscribe to Bobby Owsinski's training.

    Here's a pretty simple tool he just put out that can help you get your mix balance "in the ball park" quickly.

    Here's what you do:
    -Solo each element of the mix
    -Watch the meter on the master fader (not the track meter)
    -Adjust the track fader volume to match his recommendations.
    -Do this for each instrument, Drums, Bass, Guiatrs, Vocals etc........

    Following this template will get your mix balance in the ball park before doing any final tweaks.
