Print it baby print it. Love that delay or multi-effect? Make a new playlist and print it. There might be a plug-in conflict for whoever mixes your music. Do they have a different version of Pro Tools, a different plug-in package, a different operating system? Don’t risk it. Print it. You fell in love with your effect, now love yourself for being organized. Sound Toys anyone? Great stuff but notorious for problems between versions. Also- Did you just accidentally delete that insert? There’s no undo. Don’t spend another 10 minutes recreating an effect you loved. Love it? Print it! After printing, check for latency. When producing, DJ quick has this advice : “sometimes I print a lot of shit”, and then strips it down. I know you love offline bounce for you stems. But what about checking the waveform against your source tracks for latency? Always check waveforms if your workflow includes video. And… There’s nothing like listening to your mix go down. Make sure all that automation really happened. You can also automate your master fader after your inserts instead of mixing into them when bouncing. Decide… more intense mixing into your master inserts, or actual volume automation on your master sub. Also, when you print, you can change a section, consolidate, and boom- there’s your next print. Vocal up, vocal down, instrumental, and anything else your producer needs. Are your ears done for the day? Print it and send it to your phone while you go home for a walk . Did you grind away at the mix another 3 hours and hate the result? Go back to your earlier print! You nailed it. Now you have more time to watch 1 Minute Mixing Madness. Print baby print it!
