Today I tried a few times to do a batch stem export of around 13 groups. I am using some Izotope plugins with automation so I need to do real time exporting (grr).
However when I tried to do all the groups as a single batch export, the window popped up saying it was exporting 13 tracks at once, and then kept restarting saying it was doing less and less tracks at once. Finally it got all the way down to just exporting the first group (Kick drums) and it said there were 12 more tracks to go. Fair enough, I just figured it would move on to the next group after the kick was done…
Well it finished the real time export of the kick and then started the next track and it was…Kick again! I thought it was something weird, but sure enough 8 minutes later it went to start the next track and…Kick again!
Long story short, I canceled the batch export and ended up having to sit there and do one real time export at a time and manually start the next one.
Was I doing something wrong? Are we not supposed to be able to do a “real time” batch export on multiple tracks?
