Option to default Export Audio & bypass all effects/plugins

Post by stuartharesnape » Tue Apr 18, 2017 10:36 am

In preferences I would like to see an option that when you export audio it bypasses all master buss effects and bounces the audio down without this at 0 volume. Maybe you can offer to override this at the time of export.

I hope you realise that it would save the almost endless repeat exporting when you forget to turn this stuff off.

I use a "Main Buss" that all tracks, busses and returns go to before master. Whatever I put on my master — like Waves NX and room correcting software — is not part of exports as I choose this main buss. The alternative is of course to turn off all master buss effects. As in all my busses all sends are turned off, to avoid loops (which would add 1 sample of latency).

One irritation is that Live won't remember I want default tracks to go to this Main Buss, rather than Master. But I need to keep track of routings myself so no big deal.

I never export hotter than -0.3dBFS and I prefer to use my Limiter instead of normalizing.
