What is Audio Mixing?

Audio Mixing is the process of blending all the individual tracks in a recording to create a version of the song that sounds as good as possible – the “mix”.
What is the process of Audio Mixing?

The process can include: balancing the levels of the tracks that have been recorded. It is the process by which multiple sounds are combined into one or more channels. In the process, a source's volume level, frequency content, dynamics, and panoramic position are manipulated and or enhanced. Also, effects such as reverb and echo/delay etc. may be added to the mix. Remember your mix down must NOT EXCEED -6db (Master Volume). This gives room for mastering.
