Chapter 12. Mixing Basics > Creating Stereo Mixes

Creating Stereo Mixes

A stereo mix refers to mixing multiple tracks of audio down to two channels (a left channel and a right channel). Stereo mixes are designed for listening over two speakers (a left speaker and a right speaker).

When we create a stereo mix, we’re actually constructing a simulation or “image” of a three-dimensional acoustic space. To construct this stereo image, we use various techniques to trick our binaural (two-ear) auditory system into perceiving sound in the three dimensions of width, depth, and height. These techniques include left/right panning, spatial effects (reverb, delay, chorus, and flange) and EQ shaping (Figure 12.1).
