“Save each track into a separate file” now only renders the effects on the given track, so pre-group/master effects. That’s nice to “freeze” tracks. But I’d love it if there was an option to render tracks with all of the effects in the groups above it, post-group/master effects, for easier rendering of stems. Here’s why…
I use groups and groups in groups in groups with effects all over the place a lot. For example, I often split the frequency bands of a synth recording into separate tracks (for more precise stereo imaging etc), group them and EQ/process them as a whole. Or I put a subtle distortion automation on a group of multiple percussion tracks. Or I group all the drum tracks together to faster adjust the volume. Stuff like that.
With the current “save each track into a separate file” option it would render all tracks without all the effects, automation, volume changes, … in the groups above it. Yeah, it also renders the groups. But I want to have the detailed tracks for further mixing/processing in other DAW’s. Now I either have to solo groups and render them manually one by one or I’d have to copy all effects/automation/volumes into each and every track beneath it.
I find it hard to believe this hasn’t been suggested before. Searched the forum, but couldn’t find much about it.
