Band update.

The story so far...

Photo of someone using a computer with audio software installed on it.About a month ago, you managed to pick up a 2nd hand 4-track recording machine and for the past few weeks you've been recording a variety of drum, bass, vocal and acoustic tracks with it.

Most of the tracks that you've collected have been from local muso's rehearsing in the Play room but you've also recorded a few tracks on your own, down at the audio school.

Your friends in the band 'Beside the Point' are taking a break from gigging at the moment, so you thought you'd download some audio software and learn how to use it to digitally mix a range of sound sources while they're away.

Before you start mixing your recorded tracks, download the following worksheet to complete as you work your way through the unit.
