So we are finally done with our song. I've done a few modifications to fine-tune our mix. It's now time to Export. When we export our song, we want to do it into a stereo format. Which includes all our of mix moves, automation, live instruments, as well as virtual instruments, and all included effects. We can do this in a number of formats depending on our preferred delivery specs. Before we do, I just want to check the mix one last time. Let's take a listen. (MUSIC). Let me open the mixer to take a look at the levels.
(MUSIC). Looks like I'm clipping a little bit, let's fix that. I'm going to go to my Edit Channel settings and go here to the Strip. Go to From Track Preset, I've already typed in Master. Let's see what this does. (MUSIC). Great, it's very subtle, but the difference is definitely there. (MUSIC). Very good, no more clipping. Let's Close the mixer.
Now, before we export, let's make sure our locators, are at the beginning of the song and at the end of the song. Let's give ourselves some nice space at the end. Let's also make sure that any tracks that are muted are unmuted, and let's make sure that solo tracks are unsoloed. Let's go over here and turn Right Automation off. Now let's go to File > Export > Audio Mixdown. Over here on the left, let's go to Ouptut Channels and select that. Let's name our mix. And under Path, let's select a location on your computer so you know where to find your mix after you export it.
Let's put it on the Desktop so we can find it easily. Under File Format, select the file format you want, whether it's Wave or AFF, or even MP3, we're going to stick with Wave for now. Under Audio Engine Output, we're going to stay at 48K, and change this to 24 Bit. If you want to listen to your mix while it is being exported, you can click on real time Export. However, if you don't, this process takes much less time. If you have a SoundCloud account, you can go down here to Post Process and Upload to SoundCloud directly.
Now let's export. After export, let's cancel out of this, let's hide Cubase and look for our song, and there it is. The last process in our mixing stage is to export our final mix into a tangible format for final delivery. One that includes all live and virtual instruments, as well as all our automation moves and effects. Export Audio Mix Down will let us export our song in various formats, whether it's Wave files or MP3s. And allow us to upload our project directly to the web via SoundCloud.
