I have a slave setup with Logic on a Mac and VePro on a PC. Just finished a big orchestral piece and about to mix it. I usually like to bounce all tracks to audio (using bounce in place) and mix with those as this has a lot of advantages, like saving resources and enabling easy clip-gain editing etc. Previously this worked fine when I was doing everything within Logic, no slave or VePro. However with the slave setup I’m now finding that the bounced tracks end up with problems such as many sustained notes having the attack only, the rest is cut off. This is when using Hollywood Orchestra with Play 5, which seems to be a well-documented problem. Apparently Play 6 fixes this but I haven’t upgraded and am loath to do so mid-project. This is obviously because the slave houses my template and I don’t want to risk destabilizing it at this stage. I haven’t tried real-time or online bouncing yet but I imagine that should work ok. The problem is it will take ages to do that for every track and I don’t want to group them into stems at this stage cos I still need to work with the individual tracks. So I’m wondering what is the best way to approach this: mix in midi, take the leap and upgrade Play to hopefully enable proper off-line bouncing, or render every track to audio in real time? Or is there something else I’m missing? Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.
