On today’s Tech, No Babel: Live-Streaming: Mixing audio prefade or postfade

You know (if you’ve been watching long), that I really think that audio for your live-stream should be mixed by a dedicated individual in an isolated room. Not every church can do that.

So the next best option is mixing with an aux. The question is whether you should mix prefade or post fade.

That’s a good question.

[tweet “When you’re mixing live-streaming audio, should you mix prefade or post fade? It depends:”]

With prefade, you have more control and you acn affect the live mix without affecting the house (in the case of something you don’t want in the house).

The downside is that it’s more work and easier to forget.

With post fade, it’s easier. Hard to forget.

The con to this that you have less control and could end up with a mix that just doesn’t sound as good.

So, what do you think? Which would you prefer?
