Pre-mixing

Pre-mixing is the stage where you get your project set up to mix and do any final editing that you need to do. I always start by lowering the track level on all of my tracks down to -6.0 dB or even a little bit lower. We may have a decent production mix going here, but for the sake of actually clarifying the mixing process, I'm going to take you through all the steps I would go through to mix this piece. And even though some of these things may get moved back to where they were, I'm going to start by bringing everything down to -6.0. You'll find in doing this that the sounds are going to be sort of out of balance all of a sudden and we can begin to work with them.

But I'd rather have everything center around this -6.0 point rather than having everything center around the 0 dB or unity point, because as soon as you start raising things above 0 at that point, you're going to be clipping down here on our main master out. If we start everything down a bit, we have much bet...
