LESSON 10 Finishing Your Work > Creating a Stereo Mixdown

Creating a Stereo Mixdown

Mixing down is the process of recording the output from multiple tracks to a stereo or multi-channel format. This process is also often referred to as bouncing, which can be done for the entire mix or to combine selected tracks to free up resources or reduce track count. Mixdown is often the last phase of music production, but in Pro Tools mixdown can be done any time you want to bounce tracks or create a completed mix for use outside of your session.

The most common mixdown technique in Pro Tools is to bounce to a stereo mix. You can record your mix to Audio tracks within your session or create an external recording using the Bounce to Disk command. Once you have created a stereo mix, you can play back the results outside of Pro Tools and share your composition with others by burning the file onto a CD or posting it to your SoundCloud account.
