In the past I've worked using a MASTER FADER and bounced out using the bounce option. but I've been made aware recently of not using a master fader at all and utilising sends (such as M+E, Dialogue) and then sending them to tracks which I arm to record.
Is this a pretty standard practice? Any extra tips?
At the moment I'm working on a short film with a ton of tracks, I'm running a room reverb for effects which these tracks send to, then this reverb sends to a (premix) AUX which then sends to a new TRACK which I've labeled full mix. I've also set the outputs from the tracks to go straight to the premix as well. Ultimately my premix SEND/AUX is now my masterfader! Is this correct? :o Taken me a while and some help from a colleague to get my head around it.
What does everyone else do? hope this wasn't too confusing.
