1: Open the project
Launch your project. Our example has Audio and Software Instrument (MIDI) tracks, as both can be rendered to new audio regions simultaneously.
2: Set song end marker
In the ruler bar, to the right of the last region in your project, you’ll find the song end marker. Drag this to a point just after the end of your song.
3: Export all tracks
From the File menu, select ’Export>All tracks as Audio Files. This will bring up a dialog containing a range of options to select from.
4: Choose save location
To start with, browse to the location on your computer’s hard drive where you want to save the files you’re about to create.
5: Choose save format
Three audio file formats are available. You can choose from CAF, AIFF or WAVE formats. All are widely used, but WAVE is probably most universal.
6: Choose bit depth
The higher the bit depth, the better the quality of the rendered audio. CD-quality is 16-bit, but 24-bit is the standard bit depth for professional audio files.
7: Bypass Effect Plug-ins
By checking this box to disable all effects plug-ins, all tracks will be rendered without effects. This is helpful if exporting tracks to an external application.
8: Include Volume/Pan Automation
By the same token, it’s also probably best to render the stems with no volume or pan automation. Leave this box unchecked to do this.
9: Save and render
Click the ‘Save’ button and sit back while the rendering process begins. This can take a while, depending on the number of tracks in your project.
