I’m exporting individual tracks from cubase so I can send them to a mixing engineer. I’m a little confused on how I should be exporting them. I got a message back from a guy trying to explain it, but it’s not making sense. I would ask him directly, but he probably won’t be on all day and I want to hurry up and star mixing things down, and since he doesn’t use cubase, maybe people that do could explain it better. I’ll quote him:
If its a stereo file, keep it panned hard left and hard right. If its a mono track, please make it centered. Then run them off accordingly. Mono track gets bused to new mono track, stereo gets bused to a stereo track panned hard left and right.
I don’t understand this at all. How do you pan a stereo track left and right? It’s one track. It has one panner. I’m not getting this. And tracks get bused to new tracks? What? I’ve just been selecting the master bus on the channel selection, but apparently, I shouldn’t be. Can someone walk me through how these tracks should be exported from Cubase? Thanks.
