A Step by Step Guide to Exporting and Uploading Cubase Tracks


Step 1

eMasterSound Engineer will add the best effect from premium professional hardware and software plugins that out weight the cost to you. So, please remove all effects, compressors, and limiters including all processing when you export your stems. If you have an instrument or vocal with an effect you would like to keep, you may do so on an FX track but, please remove any limiters on that track. Vocals must be completely dry with no effects, compressors or limiters. Also, make sure you name your stems accordingly and in order.

Pro Tools user, take these steps prepare your song for our engineers to Mix or Master your song by export or bounce the individual channels/tracks into ProTools DAW.


Step 2

Select all the tracks in your session from beginning to end.

The Export Audio Mixdown function allows you to mix down and export all audio that is contained between the left and right locators of a project.

Set the left and right locators by dragging the selection tool across all your tracks or pressing CtrL + A on your keyboard.


Step 3

Select the Edit menu and then select “Consolidate Clip”.

It’s important you consolidate your tracks so that they’re all made the same size which will allow them to all line up properly when your audio engineer goes to load them into his DAW.

Step 4

Open the Export dialog by press Ctrl + Shift + K in Windows and Apple + Shift + K in Mac.Configure settings in the Export Select dialog as follows:

File Type: Wav
You should always export in WAV or Aiff format at whatever settings you recorded your song at.
Format: Interleaved

Sample Rate: 48 kHz

Destiny Directory: Allows you to set up the naming scheme and to select a path for the exported file. Create a song name and folder in the same location as this project

Its good idea is to save the track outs to their own folder, usually titled the song name. You can do this by going to Path and right clicking on an empty area to “Create a new folder”.

Another good idea is to include an info doc with the tempo and song key in the folder name. For example, if your songs name is “Tight” you’d name your folder Tight 120 bpm major C (stems) and then click “Use current folder”.

Click “Export”.
