How can I bounce each of my tracks in Logic as WAVs and in Mono? I need a step by step guide.

    Mix via an Aux bus.

    Channels  -> Bus OUT -> Bus IN (Switched to MONO) -> MstrOutput set to MONO

     

    Now bounce the Master output and you will receive  a genuine Mono audio document.

     

    Good luck!

    In addition to kc's advice..

     

    Might want to read this chapter in the manual.

     

    It's called  "Bouncing Your Project"

     

    It discusses the options presented to you.

    Shame there's no direct option for mono bounce in the bounce window.  When I need a mono file, I usually end up bouncing stereo and then converting to mono in Soundtrack Pro.

    Press the button labeled  () next to the Bounce c.q. I buttons, choose this symbol o and you'll get mono.

    All great info, and thanks guys.  I was having the same dilemma,

     

    I am using L9, and recordign a microphone for voice overs.  My client kept telling me they wanted mono .wav files.  When I create a mono track and slect the stereo output, and click the stereo/mono symbol next to bounce so it's one circel and not two, it was still giving me stereo files.  When I bounce an mp3 the same way, the dialog box where you can name your bounce, also lets you choose mono or stereo mp3's.

     

    But the dialog box for a .wav or .aif bounce does NOT give you the option to choose stereo or mono. So, I was always getting stereo files.

     

    Now I tried switching my track output to a bus and, when tellling the bus to go either to a mono output L or R, or the same stereo output, I get mono files - two of them. And each file is half the volume of the original or stereo bounces.  How do we get a full volume output in mono?
