Rendering a Track

To render audio, you follow a basic set of instructions, described here and used in the rest of this chapter. Cubase has the ability to spit out an exact digital copy of whatever appears at its master outputs, and the file can include insert effects, send effects, automation, and EQs. The following task shows you all of the steps, including how to print the compression and EQ settings on a track.

To render a single track with effects

1.
Set the EQ and compression as you want for the track and then click the S button to solo the track.

2.
Set the channel fader to 0.00 (Figure 18.7), or raise or lower the fader to make the rendered file louder or softer.

3.
Open the mixer and set the master fader to 0.00 or raise or lower the fader to make the rendered file louder or softer.

4.
Set the left and right locators (Figure 18.8) at the boundaries of the part of the track that you want to render.

5.
From the File menu, select Export > Audio Mixdown.

6.
In the Export Audio Mixdown dialog box, set the options you want for the file.

Figure 18.9 shows the file name set to BassCompFX and specifies creation of a mono, 24-bit, 44.1-kHz WAV file. The Pool and Audio Track buttons are selected, so the rendered file will also be brought back into Cubase on another audio track.

7.
After you set all of the options in the dialog box as you wish, click Save.

A status bar will show the progress of the export process.
