Achieve total control over volume, panning, and effects processing on each instrument or vocal track for the perfect mix.
Audio and MIDI Mixing Console:The Mixing Console provides an integrated view of all tracks and busses in your project with the appearance of a traditional hardware-based mixer. The look can be customized to provide great views of even the most complex sessions.

Music Studio 9 also supports up to four audio busses and four assignable effects chains.
