Workshop

Use the quiz questions and activities to put the information from this hour to good use. This will help these techniques and concepts become a part of your long-term memory.

Quiz

  1. What is the difference between a fader and a slider?

  2. What do we call the process of placing audio in the stereo field?

  3. Which key do you use to quickly minimize all track heights at once?

Quiz Answers

  1. The control is called a fader if it affects volume. If it adjusts any other parameter, the control is called a slider.

  2. The process of placing audio at a specific point in the stereo field is called panning.

  3. Press the tilde key (~) to minimize all tracks. Press it again to restore all the track heights.

Activities

  1. Reopen the mixereze.acd project. Set a loop region the length of the project and click the Play Looped button. Use the Solo buttons to get familiar with each track in the project. Next, rearrange and color-code the tracks in a logical order and color scheme to facilitate submixing. While keeping an eye on the Master bus, create a mix using the techniques you learned in this hour.
