I’m looking for the best method to print your song to an Audio track within your Cubase Template.
I thought I did it right, but I have run into a snag which makes me believe there’s a better way. Since I have outboard gear - reverbs, delays, synths, etc. I can’t Export via the Bounce method. I wish I could… So I have to bounce in real time to an audio track. I kinda prefer this way too, since I can listen, one last time, to the final product.
I’m coming from DP, so I set it up in Cubase like I did in DP --> Basically ALL Audio tracks (and Midi Audio returns) eventually find their way to a MIXDOWN Bus. That then goes to a PRINT bus, which is a Stereo Audio Track. I do that so I can put Mastering Plugins on the MIXDOWN Buss, then that feeds the final audio signal to the PRINT track and recording it.
Since DP just has Aux tracks, i’m a bit confused in the Cubase world. Hopefully someone can enlighten me. It seems it’s really just for organization… but maybe i’m missing something key…
What I did, that I thought worked was this - I created 2 “Group Tracks” Called MIXDOWN and PRINT. Both of those are not sent to anything. (No Bus)
Then I made 2 audio tracks - One with Input - MIXDOWN and Output - PRINT. The other was input - PRINT, Output - MAIN OUT.
This has been working fine… I think… Until I just discovered a flaw. When I go to Solo a midi track or any track, I have to go down to those 2 audio tracks and solo them. It doesn’t do it on it’s own… Nor does “Solo Defeat” work… Not the worst thing to have to do… but I’m now thinking I went about this all wrong.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Love this forum! Tons of great stuff here!
