Consolidating tracks in pro tools

This is usually accomplished by making a selection from bar 1 to the end of the session, and invoking the appropriate command (different from DAW to DAW).

The downside is that there are no more separate regions in each track, which may have been helpful if the arrangement is to be further edited, though that’s usually not a major issue.

Each DAW has its own way (actually, multiple ways) of doing this, and there are a number of considerations.

(Fig 7) Logic X File Menu "Export Selection As MIDI File"A Standard MIDI File contains multiple separate MIDI tracks, with all MIDI data (notes and controllers), as well as the Tempo setting or Tempo map from the original session, which (optionally) can be imported into the target session, to insure the MIDI tracks stay in time with any audio tracks from the same session.

But, while this is a reliable way to get the MIDI data from one DAW to another, there can be some major gotchas.

If the transfer is for a new mix, raw audio is probably the way to go.

If the imported tracks will be used as a reference for overdubbing new musical parts, some mix information may be needed.

(Fig 4) Pro Tools File Menu "Bounce To Disk…"Depending on the version of Pro Tools, this might have to be done by soloing each track in turn, in real time (v10 and older).

Pro Tools 11 has options to bounce offline (faster than realtime), and the HD version further allows for multiple tracks to be bounced this way simultaneously.

Upon import, you just line them all up at bar 1, set the correct Tempo (if necessary), and the song is ready to play.

The upside is that everything is correctly lined up in time with no extra effort.
