So I've been doing this for awhile and have a good grasp of the basics. But I know there's a lot that I'm missing out on and need to learn. I've messed around with send/receives a little bit and read about busses, which I think may just be the same thing. What I'm looking for is something/somewhere I can read some pointers on how people go about their recordings. I want to see how someone in a semi-professional/professional studio does it. This may be a broad topic, but anything will help. I don't have a real clear understanding of how a lot of things work. It's usually just turn a knob until it sounds good and go on.

It's all about your ears mayng. It doesn't really matter how the professionals do it as long as you've got a sound you like.

Also SoundOnSound archives. Probably the best place to find general mixing infomation.

Also look for master classes on google and youtube. You can hear producers talking about the methods they use. There are a few vids on the metal mixing articles on SoS, here a link to JUST those videos. Has Russ Russell (Evile, Napalm Death, etc) and Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Dimmu Borgir, etc)
