Default Re: HELP Pro tools bounced files have weird sound!!

Iíve just had a quick listen and it sounds like itís phasing.

My first guess would be you have a duplicate track of the vocal that may not be muted or is hidden but not inactive. I would check this isnít the case.

It doesnít sound like a software glitch/issue, but rather a user error like I outlined above.

Go through your session very carefully and triple check thereís no duplicates or weird routing that could cause a phase issue.

Well the thing is, I have checked everything. The phasing starts happening in the middle of his verse and its on the same track, no duplicates. When i am playing it in pro tools it sounds completely normal. Im only using one Aux Send which has reverb on it and every track including the send is routed to Output 1-2.

Default HELP Pro tools bounced files have weird sound!!

Only mp3s... meaning if you bounce to wav it is OK?

What are the mp3 specs? Try maxing out their specs. Do you even need the mp3 files or can you live with wav?

What reverb? What settings? As a test get rid of the send with reverb and try again.

---

And for the third and last time...

Are you bouncing in real time?

What exactly are you bouncing?... i.e. what source? Is it actually Output 1/2 you are talking about? ... check carefully, again it is a common cause of issues.

Ideally show us a screen shot of the bounce to disk dialog screen.

The MP3 wonít sound bad in sections. If itís a low bitrate causing the underwater effect, youíll hear it on everything, not just one section of a vocal at a certain point.

There must be more to it. I find it weird that you say itís not in the way and that the session sounds fine during real time playback.

Try duplicating the session and delete everything except for that vocal track and see how it sounds on export. Then, import session data anything relating to that vocal track - sends busses etc. one at a time and repeat and see if youíre hearing that weird phase you sound. Essentially process of elimination.

Or if the session isnít too big and you donít mind sharing the audio, upload the project and maybe someone can test it out if they have the time.

Actually, can you link a copy of the wav version?

Iím still finding it hard to believe that the MP3 render is causing that sound only in certain sections.

If you upload a copy of the wav, Iíll download it and have a listen and convert to MP3 using a few different methods and let you know if it sounds the same etc.

Sardi is right. You need to show us your outputs page, bussing page, and bouncing path selection on the bounce to disk window. You need to help us help you. It could be software related but generally speaking, issues like this on bouncing are user error related.

My speculation is this.
You are bouncing from outputs 1&2. You say you have one send, lets call that bus 1-2. Your send to that reverb is automated at around the same time you are having phasing issues.
If you look at your I/O settings on the Bussing page, check to see if bus 1-2 is assigned to Outputs 1&2. If it is, this is most likely the problem.

At this point, unless you provide us with more information, there is nothing we can do to help.
