Once your project sounds the way you want it to, it’s extremely easy to convert your soft synth MIDI tracks to either new audio tracks, or Wave, MP3, or other exported files.You can also do a temporary conversion, called freezing. See Freeze tracks and synths for more information.
2. Click the Track view Tracks menu and choose Bounce to Track(s).The Bounce to Track(s) dialog box appears.
3. In the Destination field, choose a new or pre-existing track to put the new audio data on.
5. In the Source Category field, choose Tracks.
6. In the Channel Format field, choose mono if you want a mono track, stereo if you want a stereo track, and split mono if you want to create separate mono tracks.
7. In the Sources list, choose the tracks or output bus(es) that the soft synth tracks are using (usually the main outputs).
8. Under Mix and Render, make sure all choices are selected.
9. Click OK.Cakewalk creates new audio tracks from the outputs you selected. When you’re through converting, don’t forget to mute your MIDI tracks so you won’t hear them and the new audio track(s) at the same time.
Note: You control the bit depth of all rendering operations (bouncing, freezing, applying effects) in Edit > Preferences > File - Audio Data, in the Render Bit Depth field. The default value of 32 is the best for most situations. See Bit depths for rendering audio for more information.
2. Use the File > Export > Audio command.The Export Audio dialog box appears.
3. Under Filename and Location, specify the location where you want to save the exported file(s).
4. Type a file name in the File Name field.
5. Under Format, specify the type of file, the format, and the bit depth of the new file you’re creating—for MP3 use 16 bits.
6. Under Mix and Render, make sure all choices are selected.
7. Click Export.Cakewalk creates a new audio file of the type you specified. Find the file in the folder you specified, and double-click it to listen to it.
