Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me. I have a project that I want to master. I export it to a wav file and then load it into a new Cubase project (I normally drag and drop). I need to do this for processing power rather than do it all in one. Now I have been doing this for a bit but I am unsure if I am doing it right with respect to the tempo and timestretching etc… The original project is mainly at 130bpm but rises at one point. My mastering project I forgot all about the tempo and it was set to 120. Does this mean Cubase will have time stretched it when importing? If so is there a way to avoid this as I do not want any degradation of quality. In the pool window it shows the temp as 130.5 and musical mode is not on.
Also what is the best way to transfer files between the mix and the mastering project ? My final output will be CD quality. I am using wav 44.1K 24bit as the intermediary file but it would make more sense (I think) to use floats but then on import to my mastering project it asks to convert it to 24.
Thanks in advance for any help.
