Composite Track

From Chace Audio

A composite track (or comp) refers to a final audio mix that contains all of the components (or stems) that together create a complete soundtrack. These stems generally include dialog, music, Foley, and effects. The dialog may be in the original language or may have been dubbed into another language for foreign release. Either way, a composite track should contain all necessary audio for a complete motion picture soundtrack. An M&E (Music & Effects) track is not considered a composite track, as it does not contain dialog.
