Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the master channel, part of iPad Music Production: Auria.
So we've seen that the process of mixing can involve many different tools and techniques…and that the goal is to produce the most pleasing and professional sounding combination…of all the tracks as you can.…And the final stop in the mixing process is the Master Channel found at the very far right of the Mix window.…This is where everything ends up.…Everything you have done to the individual tracks, from setting their levels to panning,…to any effects you have applied, they are all routed and summed to the master track.…The same goes for any subgroups you've created.…Basically, any sound you work with goes to the master track, and looking at the master…channel, there really isn't too much to see here. We have a fader which controls the master level of your project.…
(music playing)…There is a Meter button, which displays a detailed master channel meter.…The meter displays both peak and RMS info, with RMS on the outside meters and peak in the middle.…(music playing)…This can give you a much more accurate view of the levels you're hitting in your mix.…
