Module Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to mix music that has been recorded live or in a studio. This involves balancing all instrumentals, vocals and recorded/imported sounds, and adding effects. Knowledge of musical styles and mixing conventions is essential, along with highly developed aural-perception skills and the ability to communicate effectively with clients, performers and colleagues.


Module Application

Sound mixers and recording engineers apply the skills and knowledge outlined in this unit. They take the multi-track recording of a performance and mix it down to a format ready for mastering.
