Lesson 7. Mixing and Effects > What You’ve Learned

What You’ve Learned

  • The Track Mixer includes a Volume slider, Pan wheel, and Level meters for each track.

  • You use the controls in the Track Mixer to adjust the levels of an individual track.

  • When the levels in the Level meter turn red, that means the volume is too loud. This is also known as clipping.

  • Changing the pan position of a track changes the placement of that track to a different location in the left-to-right stereo field.

  • Option-clicking the track controls will reset the Volume slider or Pan wheel.

  • You can add or change the effects on a track in the Track Info window.

  • You can add or change the effects for the overall song in the Master Track Info window.

  • You can dynamically change the volume or panning of a track over time by adding control points to the Volume or Pan curves.

  • You can add control points to the Volume curve by clicking the Volume curve.

  • You can move a control point by dragging it.

  • The Master track Volume curve is for dynamically adjusting the volume of the overall song in the Timeline. You can also dynamically transpose a song by adding control points to the Master Pitch curve.

  • The master output volume is the output level of the finished song that will be used when you export the song.

  • You can use the Master Output Volume slider to adjust the master output volume.

  • To change the volume of your playback in your headphones or speakers, use the volume controls for the computer, not the Master Output Volume slider.
