Consolidate?

Postby Perfect Record » Thu Jul 04, 2019 07:22

Is there a function to consolidate and render out multiple tracks from a project.

I need to dump out multiple tracks from multiple projects including automated fades and processing, as we can do in Pro Tools. I can't figure out a quick way to do this.

In other words, I want to end up with 20 or so files from a 20 track project, so they can be moved into another project with a vastly different busing structure.

It sounds like you wish to export more than just the audio files/clips, otherwise a simple Render operation would be enough. Do you have the AAF export function key for Pyramix? Does the software to which you're exporting support AAF importing?

I am importing back into Pyramix. This has changed from a somewhat complicated stereo mix and turned into a very complicated multi format surround mix.

Render as far as I can tell, does not reflect the automation and fades. I need the rendered- consolidated files to have the relative balance and fader moves of each track captured in the resultant files for each track.

Render is not what you want; it only deals with what's on the timeline and none of the mixer functions.

There's probably a much easier way but the following is 'known to work'

(only sorta') quick and (very) dirty method:

Assuming that panning doesn't matter...

Add the 'La Totale' 32-channel output bus in your mixer (You could also use the 'NHK 22.2' or the '25-ch HO Ambisonic' buses.)
On each input strip, select 'channel router' as the bus interface type
Assign each input strip to one of the output buses
In mixdown, select that output bus and 'one file per track'
Perform a mixdown and you'll get all of your individual, automated input strips/tracks as individual files.
The file-naming in my test was "mixdown name_##track number##__unique file extension" ("test only_##001##__dfh456tg3456534b3bv3ETCETERA.wav")
