Join Yeuda Ben-Atar for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing your project for mixing, part of Learning Ableton Live 9.
After we recorded our musical idea, arranged it in the Arrangement view,…added effects, and automated parameters in the effects over time using…automation envelopes,…now it's time for mixing.…It's time to make all the elements of the song work together.…When I mix a song, I usually convert all the MIDI tracks to audio.…In Live, it's very easy to quickly bounce your MIDI tracks to audio using Freeze & Flatten.…Let's right-click on the Bass track and choose Freeze Track.…
Freezing a track will temporarily disable all the devices on it,…but we will still be able to hear its output.…This can also help saving up CPU power in heavy projects.…If we right-click again on the track, we can choose Unfreeze Track to go back, or…Flatten, which will convert all the MIDI into audio.…So now, if we double-click on one of the clips, we can see its audio rather than MIDI.…
If you want to keep your MIDI data-- let's go back and hit Command+Z. Let's…create a new audio track by going to Create > Insert Audio Track, or Command+T…
