Just wondering, what method do you guys use when you want to go from using Spark in real time, to converting all of your drums (banks and patterns) in to audio-files?
I have so far experimented with these methods:
1. Rendering patterns and dragging audio-files in to Pro Tools.
Works ok, but i am DEFINITELY noticing some reductions in the sound quality, as oppose to Spark in real time.
Also, when using reverb on different drums in patterns, the audio-clips cuts of that when one is copying clips in the DAW, so itīs rarely practical for me.
2. Printing entire patterns via bussing in Pro Tools
Works bad. The sound quality of the drums is greatly reduced when i print Spark patterns to an audio-track in Pro Tools, as oppose to running Spark in real time.
On the plus side i now have an audio file thatīs coherent, and doesnīt cut of any reverb or other effects.
3. Printing individual drums via the multiple outputs in the mixing window in Spark.
Best quality so far, although it wonīt print in stereo in Pro Tools 8.0.5. It is supposed to print on "Aux 1,2,3" etc.
according to the video on "Recording multiple outputs", but in Pro Tools 8.0.5 i only have "Out 3+4", "Out 5+6" and so on, all the way up to "Out 33+34". And that only prints in Mono.
