EXPORTING TRACKS FROM PRO TOOLS

Pro Tools can be a powerful ally when you’re working on a project in your home studio, but with all the options it presents, how do you know the best way to export your music? Here is a quick step-by-step breakdown of how to export your tracks before you send to the studio.

Exporting Tracks from Pro Tools

  • In the Edit Window, group all tracks. There are two easy ways to do this:
    1. Choose ALL from the Groups window
    2. Option + Click on one of the track names (which selects all tracks), on the menu bar, click Track, Groups (notice that all audio tracks are currently in Group), click OK
  • Using the selector tool, click and hold beyond the end of the last audio track, then drag back to the beginning of the session, so that the entirety of all tracks are selected
  • Go to the Edit Menu and select Consolidate Clip, which will make each track a single file, with all the audio files the same length — starting from the beginning of the session
  • Click Shif t+ Command + K to bring up the Export menu
    1. Select File Type: WAV Format: (Multiple) Mono Bit Depth: 24 Bit Sample Rate: 96kHz
    2. For Destination Directory, click Choose, then create a Directory for the exported files, with the name of the song to be exported
    3. For Resolve Duplicate File Names, choose Prompting For Each Duplicate
    4. Click Export
