Here’s a thing when exporting stems:
I output my tracks into different Group Channels to be exported as stems. In the Export Audio Mixdown window, I choose Multiple Channel Selection. I check all the group tracks I want to export, and under Effects, I choose Groups/Sends or Master/Groups/Sends.
A fantastic feature! BUT:
This does not include the sends that are sent from the individual tracks before they go into the Group Channel. That means I have to duplicate each of the FX tracks so that I have one FX track per stem, routing them to each of the Group Channels before mixdown. I then have to change the individual track sends so that they go to the new FX track that corresponds with that track’s stem destination. An okay workaround, but still a bit of a hassle.
The alternative is still to do it the old way, soloing all the tracks I want in each stem, do an export with Stereo Out as the source, then repeat.
I would absolutely love it if the Audio Mixdown would also include all the sends from the individual tracks BEFORE they go into the Group Channel, when exporting that Group Channel with Sends during a Multiple Channels Mixdown.
