Bounce - Audio Design Desk
How Can We Help?


Bounce Window:

When you have finished your project, Bouncing is the process of creating and exporting a stereo mix-down of your session. To Bounce your project, go to the File Menu and click Bounce. Or press (⌘B) to open the Bounce Window.

By default, ADD will bounce the entire project timeline. We recommend setting In/Out Points to prevent ADD from bouncing empty space.

Set your In/Out Points by pressing ( I ) and ( O ). Or you can press (Command – A), then press (Option – Command – L), to set In/Out Points around the entire project.

The Bounce Window allows you to select different Audio Formats, Sampling Rates, and Bit Depths that can be selected on the right side. As well as you have the option to add the bounce to a playlist inside of ADD. The Bounce Window also offers several options of what you want bounced that can be selected at once.


Export Audio Mix:

Checking this a single stereo mix-down file of your project. This is useful when exporting a completed music composition or a draft of your audio for your editor/director.


Export Tracks:

Each individual track will be bounced as a separate stereo mix-down. This is useful when your mixer or editor is asking for Stems of your audio such as Footsteps, Ambiences, Sound Design, etc.


Export Multichannel Wave:

Compresses all of the tracks from your project into an individual multichannel.wav file. With this .wav file containing all tracks along with all fades, effects, and edits, you can easily import your work into another DAW and every track from your project will be displayed.  This function can only be activated along with the “Export Tracks” option.


Export Video:

Creates a stereo mix-down of the project and exports the audio to the video. You can choose the video format from the drop-down menu. For the fastest results, select “same as source” in the export video drop-down. 


Overwrite Existing Files:

Selecting this box will overwrite any files with the same name in the same location.


**When no box is checked, the project will Bounce the full composition in a single audio .wav file**
