Route the output of each track to another empty track. Record arm the destination tracks and then hit record. When the record pass is done all your effects and automation will be "printed" to the new tracks.

Jake, In addition to Steve's idea, try slating each track vocally. Grab any small recording device (pocket recorder, iphone, laptop mic) and record yourself reading the names of each of the tracks. Import the recording into the pro tools session and splice each recorded track name into its own region. At the end of the session (after the video file ends) ...

Quick answer: I don't know if it is possible. Also, Pro Tools > Nuendo and Nuendo > ProTools transfers aren't always the smoothest. If you have that working, you're over half-way there. Quick solution: Email. (ie. A1-A16 = SFX, A17 = LFE, A18-A22 = Foley, etc.) Never underestimate the usefulness of good 'ol communication in the face of technological "...

Convert the m4a file into a 48kHz WAV file first, using iTunes, Audition, or QuickTime Pro. Import the wav file into AE, and position it in the same place as the video file. Make sure the loudspeaker icon is enabled on your new audio track.

Yes, there will be a difference. Mp3 is a lossy codec that deteriorates with every generation. It's bad practice to use mp3 (or lossy compression in general) at any stage where the audio may yet be edited or reencoded. Some programs are smart enough to simply copy the original audio stream without reencoding if possible, but I can't say whether this applies ...

WAV is a lossless raw format, so the short answer to your question is no. The only way to reduce the filesize is to : use a different export format, or shorten the length of the project. There are various lossless compression tools available to you such as WAVPack, FLAC. The lossy compression tools that could be considered are aac or mp3.

After many headaches I finally found the answer: it has to do with a mismatch between global and export Sample Rate settings. Here is how to fix the issue: Go to Ableton Live's Preferences / Audio and note your Sample Rate : In/Out Sample Rate setting. Now try exporting again and make sure that the export setting is set to the same Sample Rate as your ...

Based on Nuendo... You should be able to do an Export -> Audio Mixdown which will allow you to select an output channel of a particular format (mono, stereo, whatever) to allow you to export the audio through that master channel. This is a fairly basic process in cubendo. "Saving" is normally done at a project level. You need to 'export audio mixdown' in ...

I'm fairly certain I know what the problem was now. Figure will always export the current file, in whatever state it was last saved in. This means if you mute 2 of the 3 tracks and export, you will not get the resulting single track you expected. You have to mute the undesired tracks, then save, then export. I had known this and thought I was saving, but ...

As far as I know there is no "direct" way to export a sample built from reason synths/samplers. What you can do is: Set your reason project to only play the single note you want to export (clear the sequencer and only leave a single note) and use the "Export as WAV feature". Reproduce for each note. The other way around is to use signal routing on your ...

8-bit 8K isn't going to be great quality in any case, but WAV is as good as you can do. Straight uncompressed MS-format (RIFF) WAV is the most compatible format for interchange. There are two senses of 'compressed' at work here. U (mu)-law and A-law refer to schemes for compressing dynamic range, not for reducing file size. Typically they would be 'expanded'...

I haven't used Audition myself in years so I don't know if there is any plugin to do this, but even if there isn't, the classic workflow is to export to .wav or .aiff, and then use the converter of your choice to convert that to Ogg Vorbis or FLAC. This will work for any tool that records audio, not just Audition.

consolidate the clip and it renders the fade and gain. shift+option+3

Hey, You can bounce the individual regions ('clips' in PT 10) by soloing the track, selecting the region and then opt+cmnd+B. When the bounce window pops, in the bounce source, select the proper output. (Output--->Built-in Output) I think that should help you out and all your fades and plugin settings will get printed as well. I hope that's what you meant. ...

You could do an internal bounce (route through a bus and record to another audio track). That would lock in all the processing, fades, etc. without the hassle of dealing with the Bounce to Disk window. You can even create interleaved or mono files as necessary by making that change in the Session Setup window.

After running some tests on my system with various codecs, I've come down to DV for SD material (I still use the ol' Canopus on my home rig) and DVProHD for HD material at 720P... PhotoJPEG and ProRes came in a very close second in my CPU tests. I have FCP on my systems so I usually use Compressor to Convert.

I usually do an export in QT 7, reducing frame size and audio quality (I keep the audio track intact as a guide track, but use compression to help reduce the file size). This tends to help make the video file easier for the DAW to handle. I'm interested to find out how others approach this.
