Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Mixing, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Okay, now that we have cleaned up…and organized our tracks a bit,…let's talk about mixing them all together.…Now, too many people spend too little time…during this part.…Try to remember that what you're creating here…is the final version, or at least the first impression…of the song that anyone you choose…to share this with, is going to hear.…So, be prepared to spend a decent amount…of time mixing your song.…In professional studios, it's not unheard of…to spend anywhere between several hours…to several days mixing a single song…and figuring out exactly where every single instrument…should sit in the mix.…
So, don't beat yourself up if you find yourself…spending what seems like a long time on your mix.…Just do it until you're happy with the mix,…or at least until you feel like you can live with it.…The first thing we should look at here…are the different level sliders in GarageBand,…because when you're mixing you're adjusting…the overall volume levels of each track…in relation to the other tracks,…
