If this is a joke I don't get it.

Although it isn't 100% designed as one it can be perceived as one.

Seriously, a lot of your suggestions don't make a lot of sense.
The other ones seem overly complicated, a poor substitute for proper sound design and a way to get a really lifeless overprocessed sound. The opposite of a mix with definition and dynamic range, then.

My workflow is the complete opposite. I keep things as streamlined as possible and only use one or two well-judged effects on a sound, if any.. definitely no weird shit with harmonizers and multiband compressors. I love broad stroke equalizers and then glueing things together with slow compression and some saturators on sends. Saturation is really key if you're working in the box, picking the right type is 50% of it. Well-saturated sounds just sit together much better before you even start with compressors.
Reverb and delays I also keep as sendFX or sidechain them so once I have my sound dialled in, I just have two sliders (dry and wet) to worry about and don't have to go back into the plugin chain.

Your music sounds pretty cool actually. It's different. I like Triptych, reminds me of DJ Krush a bit.
But as I suspected the mixes sound very flat and lifeless to me.
