    This a quick question. I know that after the mixdown process, you have the option to interleave your waves 1panned left and 1panned right. The question is, is this a good process for the mixdown of a beat that you have created. My thougt are that, that would be to much wave on top of wave action going on after you've added vocals to the beat( meaning that the beat would have been interleaved twice. Just a question..... im just trying to get the best out of my beats, and my overall recordings...mabye some of you can give me your process in the mixdown of your beats and you vocals to the beats.

    'Interleaved', in this case, just means that the two channels arec in one file. Non-interleaved would give you a left channel file and a right channel file. In the end, there is nothing different between these two options, save for the number of resultant files.

    I would recommend that your record vocals into your multitrack project so that you can still haev control over individual elements of the beat after the vocals are there.

    I guess that the interleave is only significant when you are about to right a DA audio CD

    or you want to play the file in a typical media player

    I would definetly agree with tracking the vocals into the same project as the beats. I wouldn't worry about interleaved untill your final cdda mixdown.
