The Multitrack View work area :

In Multitrack View, you can mix together multiple audio files to create layered soundtracks and elaborate musical compositions.

Mixing occurs in real time and is nondestructive. You can change mix settings during playback and immediately hear the results. Because mixing is nondestructive, mixing adjustments don't permanently change original source files.
