Lesson 9. Mixing > What You've Learned

What You've Learned

  • The clip detector at the top of each level meter turns red if a channel's volume is too high.

  • If the clip detector is black, the number in it shows how many dB below 0 the channel peaks at, and thus how much higher the volume can go before clipping occurs. If the clip detector is red, it shows how many dB over 0 the channel peaks at, and thus the number of dB by which you need to reduce the volume to bring the channel's level back under 0 dB.

  • Level meters hold the channels' peak levels for a few seconds, making it easy for you to see volume peaks.

  • The Track Mixer displays the same channels as the Arrange window, in the same order.

  • The Track Mixer's filter buttons are used to hide or display specific track types.

  • Fades created in the Arrange window are nondestructive and do not change the original audio files.

  • To create a curved fade, hold down Control and drag up or down on a fade.

  • A Send (located below a channel's Insert slots) splits a portion of a channel's sound out and sends it through a system bus to another Audio Object.

  • The CPU window is used to monitor your computer's performance.

  • The Freeze button, which looks like a little snowflake, appears on every audio track and Audio Instrument track in the Arrange window.

  • When you freeze a track, Logic renders the track and all its plug-ins into a high-quality audio file that it plays instead of the original track. All plug-ins are temporarily deactivated, and they will place no further strain on your system until you unfreeze the track.
