Introduction Edit

The mixer is the heart of the Mastering task.

Mixing Your Tracks Edit

A software mixer (as a hardware one) is an effect machine that, as well as the feature of mix the input data, can modify some characteristics of each input, some of them are basic features -general ones that all the mixers have- (Fig.1) and other features that depends on the developer:

1. Basic features

a) Channel input volume faders

b) Panoramization for each channel

c) Mixer output volume fader

2. Extended features

a) Channel EQ

b) Insert effects (to connect plugins for each channel)

c) Auxiliary inputs (to connect the mixer to an input signal from hardware -i.e. soundcard- or another software)

d) Controls for channel mute and solo, and so on

Because there is no multi-input/output feature in Psycle, we need to work with its mixing capabilities that is offered into each machine and each wire.
