    It make r&b tracks you going to need to be familar with your basic major minor scales most r&b is in the minor scale but there are some in the major scale. major scale sounds more happy while minor scale sounds more sad. since blues is used lot when the r&b singer most songs are in the minor scales while more uptempo are for happier. for an example Justin timberlake justified abulm. cry me a river.

    mixing a record takes many skills and the proper mixing studio monitors

    You are also going to need to use your ears, have proper room acoustics. Which you will need some bass traps and some arealex studio foam.

    Expaining how to mix is to deep to write about but you can find links on here for mixing tips.
    Mixing involves in eqing, compression, paning leveling the mixing to balance it out adding sends, inserts, reverb, delay, chours and so on etc…

    Mastering is separte from mixing.

    For very deep bass you scan use a simple sine wavform.
