In this lesson, our instructor Evren Edler gives an introduction to mix windows. He goes on to define mix windows and talk about its features, as well as channel strips, coloring the tracks, faders, meters, panning & Viewing options. He then explains the topic of signal routing windows and using inserts. Lastly, he goes into the types of plug-ins and operating them.
Mix Window: Mix window has a
look of a traditional mixing board. It provides us a mixing like
environment for recording & mixing audio. Tracks appear as mixer
strips, also called “Channel Strips”.
Signal Routing Controls: Top
portion of each channel strips provides controls for routing signals
into & out of the tracks. These are Inserts, Sends, I/O.
Inserts: A channel insert is an
audio patch point that allows either a plug-in insert or hardware
signal processor inserted in to the audio channel.
Sends: The term send refers to
a signal path carrying a mix output of one or more audio.
Inputs: The term inputs refer
to an audio signal traveling into an audio hardware device such as
a mixer or an audio interface.
Outputs: The term Output
refers to an audio signal traveling out of an audio hardware
device, such as mixer or an audio interface.
