Why it's a good idea to use subgroups, and what you can do with them
- [Voiceover] Let's start this movie with some thoughts on…groupings of instruments and how templates such as this one…can allow a mixer to do some interesting things with levels…for groups of instruments and why that's important.…The first thing I wanna talk about is a group I've made…called all audio tracks, is this track here.…You can see I've placed the view in the edit window…to show all volumes.…
This is a group I use only at the very beginning of a mix.…Let's listen for a moment.…(pop mix music)…For instance if I see…a level hitting the stereo bus that I think it's too hot…right at the beginning of a mix when I'm using a nominal…level for all the faders, I'll pull it back all at once…to get those levels in line and somewhere where I want them.…
That's all audio tracks and no group tracks,…no auxiliary tracks.…Let's talk about that again for a second.…First thing I wanna point out is…in the new era of plugin modeling, we're looking at…devices that exactly emulate their analog counterparts.…Those analog counterparts were very sensitive…
