    Question the way that you like and the way you like

    Could somebody help me with this doubt, please?

    Is it correct to say "put the sound in the PC, mix and edit it in the way that you like"?

    Is it the same if to use "the way you like" instead of "the way that you like"?

    Thanks in advance =)

    Exclamation Re: the way that you like and the way you like

    (Not a Teacher)I'd write it ,"....mix and edit it the way you like." 'That' isn't wrong, but isn't strictly necessary either.Also, "put the sound in the PC" doesn't sound quite right.Perhaps it should be something along the lines of, "....record the sound on your PC, then mix and edit it the way you like."You could also say "however you like" instead of "the way you like".

    Re: the way that you like and the way you like

    Yes, you can.
    the way (that/which) you like
    that and which are relative pronouns, and also can be omitted.

    '... edit it the way which you like' sounds unnatural to me.

    Why didn't you explain?

    Re: the way that you like and the way you like

    Dear 5jj,
    You said:
    the way which you like' sounds unnatural to me.
    In my opinion, if a native speaker said it is unnatural to me, it is wrong.
    My understandin is that that and which can be used interchangeably as relative pronoun.
    Am I wrong, in your opinion?

    Re: the way that you like and the way you like

    Some claim that in defining relative clauses only 'that' is correct. I do not agree, but I do feel that 'that' (or a zero relative pronoun) frequently sound more natural; they are certainly far more common.
