Chapter 10. Arranging and Mixing > Setting Signal Levels

Setting Signal Levels

Once your project is organized enough to manage, it's time to set your levels. Mixing means raising some levels and lowering others. Because of this, set your Mixer channels to unity gain (see sidebar, “Unity Gain”), or 100, before you start mixing.

If your song's volume is going to increase down the line, or you are using a lot of distortion effects in your tracks, you might even want to set your initial levels lower still, to about 75–80.
