too general

I was hoping to see more production tips and tricks

Response from Customer Service:

Thank you for your review!
This tutorial is more of a review of an existing production than a tips and tricks lesson.
However, letting these great engineers review a mix offers a lot of value in it's own right. I hope you apply their thought process to your own mixes!
