Lesson 6 Working with Music > Walkthrough: Mastering Music

Walkthrough: Mastering Music

In a typical game music project, music can be exported using either a Bounce To Tracks or Bounce To Disk workflow. Because you have so few cue sections, it will be faster to use Bounce To Disk.

Tip: In a larger project with many cues, the cues are typically bounced to tracks, exported, imported into a dedicated mastering session, and then bounced to disk.

In this walkthrough you learn how to maximize the levels before exporting. You also insert a quality dither plug-in to take the files from 24-bit to 16-bit before you bounce.

To add an ultra-maximizer to the master fader:

1. Create a stereo master fader (see Figure 6.24).

2. Use the Edit Window View selector or the View menu to display the INSERTS A–E column in the Edit window.
