Rendering Stems with Return Tracks

Post by theswiftone » Wed Jan 29, 2014 1:07 pm

I've got a mix Im happy with and want to export the groups to stems for a final mixdown. I do this by selecting the groups individually as this selection is not available. I know if you render all the tracks it exports everything including the Return tracks. Do I need to export the Return tracks and have them with all the other group stems to have the same audio as I had with my original track? Or do the grouped tracks exported already contain the return signals? Is there a better way of doing this?

Thanks for any help............. :D

if you solo your groups and returns and export master you would have the same thing, but collapsed.
another solution is to export the groups only, and separately the returns only for more later modularity.
ie if you set your tracks that got sends levels outputs to "sends only" and export master or directly choose
the return as rendered track should also work if im not wrong.
