You guys may already know this… putting it up in any case.
So I have a session with 32 tracks spread out over Instrument and Audio Tracks. Most tracks have inserts on them… different inserts. Every time I try to mix down the audio to a WAV or mp3 file, cubase 8 crashes.
First I tried freezing all tracks with inserts on them… no go.
Then I tried soloing each track and exporting them to find out where the problem lies… still no go… Cubase just wont export anything down.
I also tried removing the inserts on the master bus… still to no avail.
Until finally, I selected all parts in the session and Rendered them into place. It took a lot of time because there were over 400 parts in the session. But eventually, I had all parts laid out in renderred audio in the session. I deleted all the original parts and then tried to mixdown.
It works just fine now.
Thank God for render in place.
