When you stretch an audio clip, AudioSnap uses a particular formula, or algorithm, to stretch the audio. The best algorithms take the most computing time and power to complete, so if AudioSnap always used the best available algorithms (the iZotope Radius algorithms), you would not be able to play back your clip in a reasonable amount of time to listen to the timing. That’s why you can choose a quick algorithm for “online” rendering (real-time playback), and a different algorithm for “offline” or non-real-time rendering. Offline rendering in an AudioSnap context usually means bouncing to track, but it also refers to other offline processes such as freezing tracks and applying effects. When you do any of these mixdown operations such as bouncing, exporting, or freezing, audio clips use the offline rendering algorithm you have chosen for them.
Note: The Online stretch method is for preview purposes only during playback. The final audio quality will be greatly improved after the Offline stretch method is applied during mixdown/export.
Do your AudioSnap time stretching, error correction, etc., with a quick algorithm: choose either Percussion or GrooveClip.
After your AudioSnap editing is finished, bounce to track with a better algorithm: choose one of the Radius choices, or for drum tracks, Percussion is usually the best choice.
Note: You should avoid rendering AudioSnap clips more than once. Applying stretch algorithms multiple times in succession can degrade the audio quality (similar to transcoding an MP3 file).Until your project is mixed and finalized, it is recommended that you use the Freeze function instead of Bounce to Track(s) or Bounce to Clip(s) if you need to temporarily off-load CPU processing power. For details, see To freeze an AudioSnap-enabled clip.
2. In the Applies To list, select Global.
3. Every AudioSnap-enabled clip that you stretch or bounce uses the settings you choose for default stretch algorithms, except clips that you choose individual settings for.The AudioSnap palette displays the current stretch method of the selected clip. If you select multiple clips that have different stretch methods, the Online and Offline lists display (Multi).
3. In the Applies To list, select Clips.
3. In the Applies To list, select Tracks.
