There is a lot of things I learned in the past months that I felt kind of really pissed off when I learned about them. Here's 2 of them: 1- PRINTING TRACKS Printing tracks is useful for a lot of stuff. First of all, lot of people say that by printing audio on new tracks instead of bouncing them sounds superior. But the main thing I find useful about printing tracks is that it is soooo much faster than bouncing. Let's say you have a midi playing audio in a vsti like Pianoteq, from bar 64 to bar 68. I used to solo the midi track and the vsti and bounce them in cubase, so it took a lot of time each time I wanted to have the midi in audio. Instead of doing this, you should print the audio on a new track. Here's how to do this in Cubase: 1- Press F4. Create a new Stereo output Bus. Name it as you wish (let's say Piano for this example) 2- Select the vst intrument track, and choose Piano bus as the output. 3- Create a new track. Select Piano bus as outbut. 4- Place the marker at bar 63. Arm the track you just created, and record until bar 72. 5- Voila, your audio is now printed and it took 1/10 of the time it takes bouncing it. 2- STOP BOUNCING Another stupid mistake I was doing was, let's say I had the piano track we just printed, with multiple segments across the track, and I wanted to send it to someone. I used to bounce it with my markers at the beginning and at the end of the track. STOP DOING THIS. Instead, just consolidate all the segments, and rename the consolidated file with ''AAA'' at the beginning. Now, just go in the Audio file of your project, and the file will be there, easily found because of the ''AAA'' at the beginning. The problem with this is that you can only have it in wav, at least in Cubase. In pro tools, you can click on the consolidated file, right click it in the bin and select ''export audio file as'', and you will be able to choose the type of file you want. I know this is some basic stuff, but I can't believe how much time I wasted because I didn't know these simple tips.
