  • (acoustics) The condition of having an equal weight of different instruments and/or voices so no one instrument or voice overpowers the others. A mix is considered to be "balanced" when all of the sounds can be heard clearly and no one sound dominates the rest (exception: when there is a lead instrument or vocalist, they will typically be louder than the others).
