    When you lay down your mix to audio, what's your typical number of tracks in your mix?

    Bare minimum is 7 tracks at a time, but barely that. Usually it's 20+ but never over 40.

    For Productions usually no more than 12. For a complete song no more than 32....(only because that is what I'm limited to in pro tools le)

    I do mostly hip-hop so I very rarely go over 20 unless I'm doing somthing with complex vocals or harmonies for the hook, or if I have a lot of fill-ins and stuff like that

    yea, I produce hiphop as well.. so its normally, the hook, a few verses, ad libs, the beat and maybe some other little intros... prob around just 10. never over 20 or so.

    Well i'm a bit wasteful so by the time i get to mixing down the average song i generally run anything from 40-60 tracks. That's not so excessive as it sounds coz each seperate drum sample or sound for example has its own track.

    Some of the tracks are stereo but mainly in mono at 48kHz & 24 bit. For mixing purposes usually everything is grouped into about 6-8 buses though i.e. drums, bass, lead synth, vocals, guitars, solos, pads & strings, special effects etc.

    One track i did called Spin Out was 68 tracks... mainly coz i had lots of different guitar stuff going on.
