Consolidating audio files in pro tools
Ensure “Split Mixer Tracks” selected, and export as wav or aif files. Select “Export Multiple” from the File pull-down menu. Set Export Format to WAV, Split files based on Tracks, and Name files Using Label/Track Name.Community member Narek Ambar has been in touch to ask for our advice on how to create smaller Pro Tools sessions when preparing them for archiving so they take up less storage space. Dear Pro Tools Experts, I'm a huge fan and a big follower and absolutely LOVE your content!Alternatively, you could select “Consolidate Selection” from the Edit pull-down menu. To export these new files, highlight them all to select them, and press Command Shift “K”. Note that this will create new files, which can be retrieved from the Audio Files folder. Alternatively, you could select “Export Selected as Files” from the Audio Regions List pull-down menu. Once all clips have been consolidated, click File Audio 5. Just sort the files by Date Created so that they are grouped together. Once you’ve rendered all tracks, you can select them from the Audio Files folder; I recommend copying them to a new folder for ease of transfer. Split all the instruments or sounds onto their own mixer channels. Name each channel according to the sound it’s playing back and bypass effects inserts on each channel and the master channel. Repeat this with every track until all tracks have been rendered. These allow you to render audio or Audio Instrument tracks with all active effects and automation into a single new audio file."Back to the troll cave with you, damn it!! Than I wanted to consolidate the track to I could keep my files organized.
This will bypass the Reason 14:2 mixer, yielding higher quality audio. Highlight from .000 to just past the end of the song.
Select the Glue tool and click on one of the regions of the track - Logic will throw up a dialog box informing you that you are about to create a new audio file. WAY more involved than PT's Consolidate, but it'll work fine. I do this with each track individually and they line up perfectly in PT. it will automatically start each track from bar one and it does not export effects, volume or panning. if you want to bounce with effects , panning and volume then solo one track at a time and do an offline bounce, which will be faster. These allow you to render audio or Audio Instrument tracks with all active effects and automation into a single new audio file." Export menu also features several Export functions for Regions and tracks. copy Yeah, it is faster in PT, but let´s not start debating pros and cons of different daws.
The problem with the "Bounce" command is that it will bounce plug-ins on that track with the audio and bounce automation. if you have outboard efx then you gotta do it real time. These allow you to render audio or Audio Instrument tracks with all active effects and automation into a single new audio file." I have no idea Lagerfeldt, you tell me, I guess you could indeed make as many new tracks as you need and then just drag all the audio to those empty tracks, but then you'd still have to name them properely (or doesn't the exports get named after their tracks), so I think that the other suggestion (disabling everything) is faster, or did you mean something else... I was trying to glue stuff the other day and it was doing some wierd stuff.
Click the track, and all the regions on it are selected, then click the selected regions with the glue tool.
The regions will be combined into one whole region and will replace the other regions in the arrange page.
