I put all these instructions together for my clients (and anyone else). Props to Benny G for getting the ball rolling here on GS to get everyone to gather up all these instructions.
Anyway, I was just told that FL doesn't bypass inserts and sends/returns automatically during this process. Could some of you FL users please check these instructions and let me know? This is what I have: Consolidating regions in Fruity Loops: 1. Split all the instruments or sounds onto their own mixer channels. 2. Name each channel according to the sound it's playing back. 3. Put the file in SONG MODE. 4. Clear any region set in the playlist. 5. From the File menu, select "Export" 6. Ensure "Split Mixer Tracks" selected, and export as wav or aif files. Naming the base file "[the name of your song]" will help to organize the exported files by grouping them by your song's title. For example, the Drums track would be called "[the name of your song] Drums", the Bass would be called "[the name of your song] Bass, etc.
Yep those instructions are good, but you forgot one!
Remove the pluggins from the master channel, you may consider leaving the limiter if one was used.
Additionally perform a back up to zip archive, bear bones, and project files as well.
Use an excel sheet to maturely capture the name of any pluggin used on the master channel.
In some cases the users may want to render dry and wet, so they should proceed as follows
per track perform the necessary muting and deactivating of the processing, hence a selective render will work better than a full track top to bottom render.
