Default quality getting worse everytime i bounce to wav in pro tools mp9

im no expert at using pro tools but whnenver i put a beat in pro tools and lay down some vocals over it...i bounce it as a wav file, and then the quality sucks when i listen to it after....it sounds way different than it does when its in the session...its not my headphones or speakers being ****ty either...its the song itself...can somebody please help me out? im trying to put out my first ep and i really dont want it to sound bad...im pretty decent at mixing songs its just really pissing me off.

Too many variables.
Can you sit with someone who mixes professionally?

Make sure you have selected WAV interleaved format at 44 kHz and 16 bit in the export windows.

Need a lot more info before anyone can be helpful, but posting a screenshot of the session (showing I/O in particular), and a screenshot of the bounce dialog settings as you're getting ready to bounce might be a start.

My friend, in the first screenshot, in Format you should choose "Interleaved" instead of "multiple mono".

The multiple mono is definitely at least part of your problem. One other important thing is to make sure you have a dither plugin on your output master fader if you are running a 24 bit session and bouncing to 16 bit.
