Lesson 7. Mixing and Effects > Creating a Rough Mix

Creating a Rough Mix

There are different stages to mixing. You start with a rough mix, then fine-tune the mix, and finally polish the mix in the final master. There are five basic steps for creating the final mix:

1.
Adjust the volume levels of the individual tracks to balance the sound of the different instruments.

2.
Adjust the pan positions of the individual tracks to place them in the correct location in the stereo field.

3.
Find and fix any musical imperfections like timing, velocity, or performance. (This may require editing in the Track Editor, or re-recording a section of the song.)

4.
Add and adjust effects to enhance the sound of individual tracks, or the whole song.

5.
Create dynamic volume and pan changes over time using the Volume and Pan curves on individual tracks and the Master track.
