There is no one, fixed way of structuring an audio mix. Contemporary practitioners need to be mindful not only of the audio quality and artistic integrity of a final mix but also of the importance of creating separate mix stems that form component parts of subsequently syndicated formats and foreign language masters. It could be argued that a modern mixer’s skill base needs to include not only highly proficient hands and ears for mixing but also expertise in digital systems management—arranging a cost-efficient workflow for deriving the alternative mixes that modern theatrical, broadcast and online platforms demand.
