Pro Tools novice question

I am new to Pro Tools and have a question. I have all of my tracks going out to a master bus. I'm wondering what I need to do to get the song in stereo and then onto a cd? I know that I can bounce to disk but is this the correct way to finish a session? Thanks in advance for any help.

What I usually do first is print on a stereo trk first to see if I like it than Bounce to disk with a 24bit wav Interleaved for Best resolution (If recorded in 24bit). or you can do 16bit Interleaved but you would need to Dither from 24bit to 16bit to take out some unwanted noise.

It will sound low if you don't compress and add a limiter on the master bus which is good (low levels) that way the ME has enough headroom to make it loud as a commercial CD.

Next I would open in Itunes and burn on cd.

Hope that helps a lil.

So, once I have everything going to the master bus I don't need to do anything else (unless I try your advice) except bouncing to disk and then burning onto a cd? Thanks for your response.
