A typical scenario:
I have finished my project, ready to export.
All elements are routed to their respective groups and these are assigned to multiple stem outputs.
Then I batch export.
All fine as it should be. But…say if I create a loudness track at this point just to quick analyze, where would that reading arrive from ??
Ideally, I would hope it’s from the sum of post stem outs.
How do I know ?
These two links brings up valuable concerns and the suggestions making sense.
But…workflow and methods used varies quite a bit among users.
For example…if I have to deliver different stem variations of the same project, I would just simply mute non-required groups or one or two entire stem outs.
That will reflect correctly in the reading of quick analysis.
My first post describes the way I lay out my exports. I need to add that there is only one main monitor out ( stereo or 5.1)
being fed from all stem output channels via direct monitoring .
So for me right now it works as it should.
