Submix Tutorials

(a.k.a. Channel Group, Subgroup) Submixing occurs when several audio tracks are fed into a new track within a mixer. This new submix track can then be used to apply volume, panning, and effects to all of the inputs tracks at the same time. This is a very efficient method of mixing. Submixes are essential for drum and bass mixing. (See "Submixing" and "Kick Drum & Bass Mixing Techniques" in Premium).
