Audio export in cubase
Hi, when I export audio mixdown in cubase, the resulting file has no sound when played. I have set stereo output, set position markers, if I use realtime I can hear it playing during export, and the resulting file has about 3Mb as expected so it must have data in it, but no sound when I play trying various players. I must be missing something basic but can't figure out what. Any ideas?
From the size of your output file, I'm guessing you are exporting in a compressed format (MP3 or similar). If this is the case, what happens if you export as an uncompressed file (e.g. WAV)?
Sorry I should have said, I tried mp3, wav, & windows media file. I also tried to export as audio file into an audio track in the same project
From the Steinberg help page, but with my underline.
Mixing Down to Audio Files
- Set up the left and right locators to encompass the section that you want to mix down.
- Set up your tracks so that they play back the way you want.
This includes muting unwanted tracks or parts, making manual MixConsole settings, and/or activating the R (Read) automation buttons for MixConsole channels.
The setting of the Output Routing in the corresponding track Inspector determines the channel width of the Export Audio Mixdown export. This means, if no main output bus is selected, the exported audio file only contains silence.
- Select File > Export > Audio Mixdown.
- In the Export Audio Mixdown dialog, make your settings.
- Click Export.
The audio file is exported.
Hope this is of use.
In the export box - you must have failed to tick something, or you've left the channels muted - it has to be something really silly as export works very simply and I've never ever had any issues with it. Maybe a picture of the export window would assist us?
