Chapter 11. Standard Effects in Action > Using the Stereo Mixer

Using the Stereo Mixer

The Stereo Mixer effect is one of the more versatile of the standard audio effects. As its name indicates, you can use the Stereo Mixer to control the levels and pan values of each of the left and right audio channels of an audio layer. The effect also provides a switch to invert the phase of the channels, so that sounds with the same frequency can't cancel each other out.

In addition to manipulating audio channels separately, you can also take advantage of other aspects of the Stereo Mixer effect. Because it uses percentage values rather than decibel values, many users find it easier to get predictable fades with the Stereo Mixer effect than with the Audio Levels control. Also, because audio effect properties are always rendered before the Audio Level property, you can use the Stereo Mixer effect to adjust the levels before adding another effect.
