Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting levels and stereo pans, part of Up and Running with Reason 7.
The file I have here to mix is an instrumental track that I…created, called no time like the present, and right now nothing is mixed.…All the pans are set to center, so it's essentially a mono mix.…And all the levels are set at zero.…So the first thing I think we want to do is start reigning in some levels.…And some engineers might actually…start working with these input levels up at the top of the mixer.…
But I do know that I have my Guitar and base sounds dialed…in just the way I want them, and that they include some insert effects.…And so I really don't want to change the gain level,…the input signal level that I'm sending to those insert effects.…So, I know I'm kind of ball park with those input levels and…I just want to start down here.
