I would really love to keep doing offline bounces in pro tools because they save me a lot of time, but I really don’t want to sacrifice quality. I made this video to explore any real differences in sound quality between printing a mix in my session vs offline bouncing. I really thought it would be the same exact thing, but it turns out my guess was wrong. Certain plugins might not activate or work the same way, nonetheless, the summing and mixing of audio signals from different tracks into a stereo mix seems to work exactly the same. I hope you enjoy this video and make good use of these findings.
