Hi. Please, read carefully, because there are several things I'm not understanding. I'm including numbers to the question so that you can refer to them.
Q1. This is what I mainly want to do:
I want to bounce a track to be able to keep working on the new bounced track and save CPU usage. BUT I want the new bounced track to be heard with every effect and automation already applied to it. I also DON'T want the Sends nor the MASTER Pro Channel effects to be applied to the new bounced track. Is that possible?
Q2. To try to achieve what I want in Q1, I'm :
- selecting the original track
-going to TRACKS> Bounce to track(s)
-choosing Source Category: Track(s)
-choosing Channel Format: Stereo
-checking every box, but UNCHECKING "BUS FX", because I don't want to include them NOR the Master Pro Channel effects.
When the bouncing is done, I get a new bounced track, with no Sends, no Master Pro Channel effects, no Bus FXs (these three things are good); but here's the problem: the new bounced track includes the audible result of the Muted Clips (that's good), but it doesn't have the audible results of the Volume Automations of the original track. And what's weird is that, if I turn on/off the Sends POST buttons in the ORIGINAL track, they affect the new bounced track while playing ( with the original track muted).
How do I get a bounced track that has all the "things" (that affect only it) already applied in an audible way (except buses and their respective effects)? Also, how can I make it so that the original track settings DO NOT affect this new bounced track?
Thanks for any info. I'm losing so much time trying things around and looking for an answer on the Internet...
