Chapter 10. Getting the Mix Together

We've put all of the pieces in place, and now have a cohesive story with our arrangement sewn up tight. At this stage of the game, we need the elements that we've created in our project to work together sonically. The timbres of individual elements are like colors on an artist's canvas. We need to take this time to carefully blend the different colors we have going on so that every element gets its own space in the mix.

In this chapter, we will learn:

  • A little lesson on signal flow and audio energy
  • How audio signals flow through LMMS
  • The stages of mixing
  • Using dynamic, filter, delay-based, and modulation plugins in the FX Mixer
  • How to bounce our project out for various media
