All your tracks should be routed to a master bus. You can then add effects to that bus to apply them to the entire mix.

To learn how to mix and master, I would recommend the following books...

* Mixing Audio by Roey Izhaki - http://digifreq.com/?IzhakiMixing

* Mastering Audio by Bob Katz - http://digifreq.com/?KatzMastering

Hi Stuart,

They are different books. One covers mixing and the other covers mastering. They both provide a lot of good info.

Another thing to consider is: Is the "mix" really ready for pre-mastering or mastering?

Hi Jack,

One of those books I mentioned earlier can teach you about mastering.
