The Mixer allows you to control the sounds produced in playback, both for the master output and on each individual channel.

  1. Channel types

    Allows you to hide/show channels in the Mixer according to their type, and in any combination.

  2. Channel controls

    Allow you to hide/show the corresponding controls in the channel strip according to their type, and in any combination.

  3. Deactivate All Mute States/Deactivate All Solo States

    Allows you to deactivate all mute/solo states by clicking the corresponding button.

  4. Zoom

    Allows you to make channels wider/narrower.

  5. VST channels

    There is a mixer channel for each stereo output from the VST instruments in your project, and all instruments in your project are shown, even if they are spread across multiple VST instrument instances. Channels are stereo by default.

    In addition to your instrument channels, there is a single FX Send channel and an Output channel. These channels allow you to add effects, such as reverb, to your project, and to control the master output volume.


    The FX channel has Reverence loaded automatically by default.

  6. Mute/Solo

    Allows you to mute/solo individual tracks.


    These buttons have the same functionality as the Mute/Solo buttons in the track headers in Play mode. For example, if you mute a track in the Mixer, the Mute button in the corresponding track header is also enabled.

  7. Balance panner

    Allows you to position the sound of each individual track on the stereo spectrum for stereo playback.

  8. Fader

    Allows you to control the volume level of each individual track.

    MIDI channels have a MIDI fader.

  9. Channel meter

    Indicates the output volume of each individual channel in real time.

  10. MIDI channels

    Every VST instrument in your project has its own MIDI channel in addition to its VST channel. These MIDI channels allow you to change the MIDI volume and MIDI pan of each instrument.

  11. MIDI pan

    Allows you to position the MIDI output of the channel on the stereo spectrum for stereo playback.

  12. MIDI fader

    Allows you to change the MIDI volume of the channel.

    Some plug-ins require MIDI faders, and this is often useful if you are using a MIDI device for playback.


In order to control the volume levels in your project, we recommend that you first input dynamics and adjust the dynamic curve to suit your project before using the track faders.

Any changes you make in the Mixer are automatically saved and applied to the project.
