Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting organized, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
…Once you have recorded and are satisfied with all of your individual tracks, it's…time to turn your attention to making…them sound good when they're all played together.…This process is called mixing and that's exactly what you're doing.…You're figuring out exactly at what volume levels you want…to mix the individual tracks together to produce the complete song.…I've opened up a sound file called Ruin Us mixing, which is…a full length version of the song we recorded in the previous chapter.…So with this version of the project, a vocal track has been added.…And as before, I've split the software drum track into…separate tracks for kick, snare, toms, high hat, and symbols.…
So we'll be mixing the song in this chapter.…I also want to stress that what I'm going to be showing…you is the way that I like to work when mixing a song.…This is what works for me, and I'm just going to pass along what I…hope are some useful tips for you that you can use in your own work.…But, you're going to find when it comes to mixing, whatever works for you is fine.…
