For every producer out there mixing their own songs, I highly recommend watching this "Audio Myths Workshop" video:

Often my mastering clients ask why my sampling rate is 44.1 kHz vs 96 or 192. Main reason: intermodulation distortion

Anytime I hear a new song with fried highs and weak subharmonic bass I immediately think "Ozone mastering plug-in" #avoid

If you're going to master your own material, stick with the Waves L2. It's hard to get a bad sound out of that limiter.

Compressor settings for mastering: slow attack (30 mS); auto release; 4:1 ratio; set the threshold for 1 dB max gain reduction; +1 dB makeup

Compressor settings for vocals: fast attack; 500 mS release; 2:1 ratio; set the threshold for 3-6 dB gain reduction; +5 dB makeup

De-essing is critical for a smooth vocal sound. Most sibilant frequencies are between 4 and 9 kHz. Typical rap vocal sibilance at 5.5 kHz.

Reverb directly on vocals can muck things up quickly. Consider putting a short delay on the vocal instead, then put reverb on the delay.

How to get more subharmonic bass in your mixdowns: except for the bassline, put 75 Hz high-pass filters on every sound (including the kick)

If there's any "secret" to quality mixing and mastering, it's low level monitoring.

The human ear is subject to equal-loudness contour, meaning that frequencies are heard differently based on volume

Basically, the louder you turn things up, the highs and lows artificially leap forward. Definition of the midrange begins to collapse.

Some say 85 dB SPL is the optimum volume for the flattest response. Others say 83 dB. I'm usually doing my mastering in the 70-80 dB range.

And if you're wondering how to measure SPL easily, there's at least 10 iOS/Android apps you can download on your phone right now.
