Mixdown of Audio Definition - What is a Mixdown of Audio?

A contemporary audio recording typically consists of dozens of individual pieces, each placed on a separate "track". Thus, a guitar may be on the first track, drums on a second, saxophone on a third and vocals on a fourth. When the final product is created, each of these tracks must be combined to yield a song that can be played. This process of taking dozens of tracks and creating a mono or stereo master is what is known as the mix down of audio.
