If you're consistently unhappy with the mixdown I'd
recommend trying someone else. If you've got a top
notch mastering house in the neighborhood I'd recommend
trying to get a 15 minute appointment with a mastering
engineer to listen to one of your mixes. A good and
experienced ear will do wonders for your sound. You should
be able to do a quick, dry mix that you can compare to
your "final" mix. This all assumes that the tracks you
recorded are clean and sould like you want them to.
You can't fix bad recording with mixing, you can't fix
bad mixing with mastering.
To paraphrase Cathi Norton's advice to me.
"Spend the money on the mixing and mastering, you don't
want to have something that will make you cringe later."
Good luck and keep cool,
