Re-recording Mixing - Done on a mix stage, which is set-up like a movie  theatre: The mixers should hear the material in the  same conditions an audience will. - Also commonly called “dubbing.” (Mix stage  sometimes called “dub stage.”)

Re-recording Mixing - The re-recording mixers adjust the level, equalization,  and panning of every sound supplied to them by the  sound editors. - They also perform additional processes, including  adding reverberation, noise removal, etc.

The Mixing Hourglass

The Mixing Hourglass - On the mix stage, we start with all the individual units  of sound, organized in tracks in ProTools. - We usually only deal with one type of sound at once  in what is called a pre-mix : We’ll only deal with the  dialogue in the dialogue pre-mix, only the  backgrounds in the backgrounds pre-mix, and so on. - The number of pre-mixes depends on the complexity  of the sound track.

The Mixing Hourglass - Next, the pre-mixes are combined into a final mix . But  even in the final mix, three stems  are delivered  separately: - D, M, and E  – dialogue, music, and effects - Must deliver these separately for foreign delivery. - After the final mix, there is the print mastering  phase;  we will look at that next week.

I. Mixing Processes 1. Level domain processes a.) level setting - the most fundamental job of the mixer is to set  the level of every sound that is heard. - The faders  are therefore the biggest controls on  the mixing surface; also called pots  (short for  potentiometers)

I. Mixing Processes a.) level setting - On the mixing console, 0 dB means unity gain : input = output. At unity gain, the sound is played at the same level as input.
