Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Finalizing and exporting your mix, part of Up and Running with Pro Tools.
- Once we're done mixing to our heart's content,…we have to Output our mix…so the rest of the world can hear it.…In Pro Tools speak, this is called Bouncing to Disk,…and this movie will discuss the various ways we can do this.…Now before going any further, you have to ask yourself…what your intention is with your song.…For music mixing, the final mix isn't always…the last stage of the process.…Most professional mixes go through…a final mastering process before they go out…into the world, on iTunes or Spotify, printed to a CD,…or if you're lucky, pressed to vinyl.…
