Record track sequencer while retaining original tracks?

Post by itm » Mon Oct 02, 2017 6:54 am

I have used the track sequencer to create a song from 3 tracks (guitar, vocal, bass). I now want to record/save the track sequencer recording (for upload to a DAW) while retaining the track separation - i.e. I want to save it as 3 separate tracks. (How) is this possible?

Short answer: You don't...

You either bounce the result of the sequencer into a single (stereo) file (losing the track separation), OR

You take the three tracks you currently have, and recreate the sequence using the DAW capabilities (ie: cut&paste copies of the audio snippets to produce the desired number of repeats/trigger points, and shift the snippets as needed for proper time points)

Thanks for confirming. Not the news I was hoping for but at least I don't have to waste any more time trying to work out how to do it!

You might be able to do three bounces -- one for each track, with the other tracks muted/-inf on the fader. That would get you three tracks in alignment, and for the full length of the sequencer data. Since I don't have a device with that style of sequencer I can't give any confirmation.

It looks like the track sequencer doesn't allow individual tracks to be bounced, or at least I can't find a way to do it!

Running the fader to the bottom for the source tracks doesn't do anything? I'd have though the track volume would apply to what the sequencer is playing back.

Ah yes thanks that seemed to work. I'm still trying to get my head around the workflow for using the sequencer!
