Chapter 17. Uing External Effects > Mixing with External Effects

Mixing with External Effects

There are a couple of serious differences between mixing with external effects (or a combination of external effects and plug-ins) and mixing in a purely software environment. The biggest difference is probably that, when working only with plug-ins, you can bounce, render, and process audio offline, at a time of your choosing. When external effects are introduced, though, all mixing and processing will usually happen in real time.

The process gets most complex when you have to create a final mix. How do you include your external effects, such as delays and reverbs, in the main mix? The answer has a great deal to do with how you are monitoring. If you are monitoring with an external mixer or your sound card mixer control panel, probably the best approach is to record to another computer or hard disk recorder.
