Hi Alan,

I believe what Mark is refering to is pulling down just some of the frequencies of the music, and then pushing up those same frequencies in the voice track. When I do this, I find it helpful to figure out what frequencies are strongest in the voice and then work with those frequencies.

Because most voices are in the mid range, this allows the base and treble of the music to be "louder" without interfering with the intelligibility of the voice. Thus, in the case of a sports bumper, the base drum, base guitar, and cymbal hits can really drive the spot without making it impossible to understand.

One other mixing idea I did not see above
