When exporting multiple channels in my current project, the total file size of all stems combined is 14GB. Is this normal?
So I have a quick question regarding exporting multiple channels in Cubase 10. The piece I’m currently arranging is about 11minutes long and contains 66 stems, primarily consisting of orchestral sample libraries. I need to export each stem for mixing but the result is that all the stems combined reach a total of over 14GB.
Each individual stem is 226MB (regardless of how frequently or infrequently the instrument track actually performs notes).
I appreciate the length of the piece and the sheer amount of stems, but I wondered if there is something I’m missing or outright doing wildly inefficiently. I can manage if necessary, but it seems extraordinarily large.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
