Bouncing or Exporting Your Project

You can bounce or export your project at any time. This calculates the complete project offline, and renders it to a single audio file. The bounce file is actually a Mac OS X package containing one continuous audio file, the document data, and mastering info.

Exporting a project saves the project file (WB3) and the source audio files. This makes it a perfect backup solution.

Saving a DDP (Disc Description Protocol) Image creates a folder that contains several files. The entire image folder can be delivered to a mixing or mastering facility that works with this format.

To bounce, export, or save a project to a DDP image
Do one of the following:
  • Choose File > Bounce Project. Specify the folder location and project name.

  • Choose File > Export Project. Specify the folder location and project name.

  • Choose File > Save DDP Image. Specify the folder location and project name.
