Bounce settings before mastering

I'm mixing a project where the source files were all recorded in 16bit/44.1kHz (*sigh*, I know, not my fault, what's done is done). Most mastering houses prefer to get files with at least a 24bit...

Re: Can protools do this?

I agree with stootka. This is also know as reamping or "resnareing" This is probably the easiest and best sounding option if you have the snare and amp. I have used this to fix a few snares with...

Re: Working in LE7 at the Root Level

I guess it would work fine but not having tried it myself, I can't be sure. A good question for Digi. Perhaps their developers run in root while working on the code.

Re: Playing out of time

Um, "out of time" meaning you would just have to nudge the track either forwards or backwards in time to get it to sync up? If so, go into slip mode and nudge the region to right spot with + & -. Set...

Re: sitting vocals into mix
