BR-600, BR-900CD: BOUNCING or MIXING your tracks

Tags: mix,mixdown,bounce,br-900cd,br-600

Before you burn a CD or export a mix to your computer, you must mix down your tracks. This process is called BOUNCING. To BOUNCE, follow these steps:

  1. Make the song sound like you want it to sound. This means any effects and fader levels should already be set.
  2. Press REC MODE until BOUNCE appears on the screen.
  3. In the top right-hand corner of the screen, the Track Destination will appear (the default is 78V1).

    If you want to change it, you can use the CURSOR buttons and the TIME/VALUE wheel to do so.
  4. Press REC+PLAY and let the song play all the way through. When the song is over, press STOP.

Now you can burn a CD using tracks 78V1 (or whatever tracks you selected) or you can export those tracks to your computer.

To hear the BOUNCED tracks:

  1. Lower the volume of all track faders except for the MASTER fader and track Track 7/8 fader (or whatever track(s) you selected to bounce to on Step 3 above.
  2. Press the V-TRACK button.
  3. Press the TRACK button underneath the fader of the track that you BOUNCED to.

    This will display the track and the status of it's V-Tracks. Darkened boxes indicate that DATA exists on the V-Track and blank boxes indicate that there is no DATA recorded on that V-Track.
  4. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial to change the V-Track number of the BOUNCED track. For example, if you BOUNCED to track "7/8V2", select the V-Track 2 here. The cursor position will determine which V-Track will be the current playback track.
