The Export Audio dialog box (File > Export > Audio) has been completely redesigned to streamline workflow and make it easier to get to the most commonly used features. Related settings are organized into collapsible panels. The size, position and expanded state of each section is remembered when you close the dialog box.
The Export Audio dialog box contains the following settings:
*
Preset. You can create presets of export settings. A preset stores the following settings:
*
Format settings (except Bounce Buffer Size)
*
What to Export source category
*
*
Filename and Location. Filename and location are shown as two separate fields. Filename is the name of the file you want your exported audio to be called, and location is the directory where it should be saved.
*
When you first open the dialog, the location will be set to the default location as specified in Edit > Preferences > File - Folder Locations under Export Audio Files. The default is \Audio Exports under the current project directory, where the current project folder is indicated by the %PROJECTFOLDER% environment variable.
*
Format. Specify the file type, channel format, sample rate, bit depth, and dithering method.
*
The Bounce Buffer Size (ms) setting controls the buffer size for export independently of the playback latency buffer size when Render in Real-time is disabled. The default settings uses the current playback buffer size (max size is 200 msec). A larger buffer size can speed up the export process in large projects by allowing the CPU to process data more efficiently, but will use more memory. The playback latency buffer size is used when Render in Real-time is enabled.
*
What to Export. Specify which audio sources to export.
*
Tracks Through Entire Mix.  Exports individual tracks, including all downstream bus effects and automation, as heard through the main output. The result is the same as if you solo one track at a time during export.
*
Track Folders. Creates a separate file (or group of files if Split Mono is selected under Channel Format) for each track folder that you select in the Sources list, as heard through the main output. The result is the same as if you solo one track folder at a time during export.
*
Arranger Sections. Creates a separate file (or group of files if Split Mono is selected under Channel Format) for each Arranger section that you select in the Sources list, as heard through the main output.
*
Tracks/Buses in Project. Export works on the current project selection. You can modify the current track selection and the mute and solo status of each track and bus, without exiting the Export Audio dialog box. This is especially convenient if you if you want to create several tasks, each with a different selection, or if you want to export multiple stems. Simply solo the tracks that you want to include in the stem, then add as a new task.
*
Search. The search filter lets you search for a particular source should you have a large number of sources to search through. The search filter is available for all source categories except Hardware Outputs, Entire Mix, and Clips.
*
Mix and Render. When all Mix and Render options are selected, the export will sound the same as playback. You can check or uncheck each of the options to include or exclude them from the exported audio file(s).
*
Range. Specify the time range to be exported:
*
Entire Project. The entire length of the project.
*
Time Selection. A specified time selection. The Start and End edit boxes allow you to manually enter the start and end times of the export range. Click the / button to toggle between musical (Measures:Beats:Ticks) and absolute (Hours:Minutes:Seconds:Frames) time. Click the buttons to choose a time based on defined project landmarks, such as the beginning of the project, the now time, or marker locations.
*
Set Time Selection to Loop Range. Set the selection start and end times to the Loop From and Loop Thru times.
*
Set Time Selection to Punch Range. Set the selection start and end times to the Punch In and Punch Out times.
*
Add Task to Queue . Create a new task from the current export settings and add it to the queue. For details, see Batch exporting audio files using task queues.
*
Task Queue. The task queue allows you to create multiple export tasks and run them all as a batch. A task in the export queue contains the set of export settings including the mix settings, export file name, selection, location, and the time range. The export queue is saved in the project and can be recalled and re-executed. Any prompts appear at the time of adding the task, so you can run the whole queue without any user intervention.
*
Run Tasks. Batch export all selected tasks in the task queue
*
Export. Export a single job with the current export settings. Upon completion, a toast notification appears with a link to open the export location.
