Chapter 11. Mixing Audio > Linking Mixer Channels

Linking Mixer Channels

Another common approach when working with multiple tracks is to link channels. Two channels that are linked will synchronize their fader moves with each other. If you move the fader on one channel, the level of the other channel will change as well. In fact, the two channels will change levels proportionally, allowing them to be treated as one fader.

One situation in which linked channels are very useful is when you are working with multiple sounds from the same instrument. For instance, a bass might be recorded on two tracks: one with a microphone on an amplifier and one plugged into the sound card after a direct box or a preamplifier. After you set the relationship between the two tracks to achieve the sound you want, you can link the channels together and edit them as a group.
