Not exactly what you ask for but a viable solution to bring down export times - if you re-import the mix into the project (I often do anyway as a mix progress reference for myself) just export that track as mp3.
Still means opening the export window twice, change format, select track to export but at least the export is lightning fast compared with export of a loaded project.
Yeah, that’s how I figured too. Only one format at at time. And that seems to be beyond the reach of macros or logicals.
Thanks marQs, the idea sounds like a good workflow choice for the time being, short of an option to render into two formats (like Protools). Only the caveat could be, it will potentially modify the project itself, for a stupid person like me tend to forget to delete the temporary track and get surprised the next day for the volume twice as big .
I’m in the habit of immediately removing the routing (no bus) right after export.
I use that for listening anyway (via the listen button/control room) to previous mixes which gives me an idea of how the current (hopefully more advanced) mix compares to an earlier one (which may be pretty rough but preserves the original vibe better sometimes).
The script solution is the better option for you probably, just wanted to line out that workarounds can have advantages as well
This often helps me to get a kind of ‘grounding’ after some hours of twiddling, trying all kinds of weird mix moves that are interesting and funny for an audio nerd maybe but do not contribute to a ‘better’ mix. Checking back to an earlier version instantly (perfectly time alligned with the project) is super helpful indeed!
