Default Dumb. question...bouncing stems/tracks

OK. I have been confused. on this for my entire time as a PT user. I need to send a bounce of a single track to a friend.

If I solo the track and then do a bounce, it ignores my solo selection. All tracks heard. Everything is fed through auxes that feeds a mix bus. Mix bus is the only thing that hits main outputs. Nothing is solo safe'd, my bounce source is set to physical output 1-2. Still, every track is included in the bounce. Google results say that solos should be reflected if the bounce source is set to physical outs. This is killing me!

Sounds weird..

Anyway, let's start with some information of your setup. Please take a look at the Help Us Help You linked to the forum header.

Ok. System specs:

mid 2018 MacBook pro
OSX Mojave 10.14.6
i9 2.9ghz
32GB. Ram

PT 2019.12.0

I think maybe my understanding of soloing in PT is just doomed. I really need to figure this out. I want it to be such that if I solo an aux, I hear all tracks sent to the aux. If I solo a track, I want to hear that track routed all the way to the mix bus. Search results claim that I should solo safe auxes. I've done this, which allows me to hear bus processing on tracks if I solo at track level, but then soloing that aux just mutes all sound. Search results say "then solo-safe the tracks feeding the bus also". But then those tracks don't mute when I solo an unrelated aux. I cannot wrap my head around this, and I've watched enough videos to make my head spin.

How about muting the auxes/ tracks you don't want to play instead? or make them inactive?

Trying to solo on an aux isn't recommended

If nothing else helps and there indeed is a bug, after reporting the bug to Avid Support, route your soloed track/buss to a dummy buss like Bus 127-128 and bounce that buss.

Forgive me but I just don’t get that logic in the least. Why would soloing an aux be undesired? If I decide i want to hear my drums/bass together to lock in the rhythm section, I definitely don’t feel like muting 40 other tracks, or even 10 auxes, when I could as easily solo two.

Try setting up VCA's for each group. Use the VCA Master to solo the members.

I'm not saying it's undesired. I'm just saying how it works in Protools. When you solo a track it mutes everything that isn't also solo'd or solo-safed.

If your sessions aren't setup so you can mute a few auxes setup some vca's

Maybe a clearer explanation of the goal would help?? If its a single track you want to share, don't bounce it...use Track Commit. Then export that new audio file
