I had a friend tutoring me w/ audio, but unfortunately he has been sidetracked lately. Well, for 6 mos actually. I doubt I'll have access again. I've been on my own just as I was starting to understand a little!?! 1. I remember he'd have me take midi trks and record them as stereo into the audio . Then he would take them back to mono after bouncing them. Never understood that nor was experienced enough to question the process. 2. He would use a process to create silence between inactive sections within the bounced trk, why? Should I? 3. I can understand a mono trk I believe, if using a solo instrument or section. But, I occasionally use ensembles (GPO5, orchestral comp). Why make this mono? I don't remember that he did this or even suggested it (getting foggy at 75). Should or can the two be present in the mix down? 3a Ancillary to that, how does pan fit into the process. For ex, if I use a full string ensemble, does pan influence the balance? I'd say yes intuitively. 4. Is there a concise tutorial suggesting a process after the input portion - ie all midi trks ready to go in terms of balance, EQ, volume etc? I use orch stuff primarily and don't know if there is an actual difference in technique from current pop music mixing ideas. I appreciate any help. Willard
