In this Section, we discuss the different ways to save and export your sessions. When working with any type of digital media, It is important to stay organized and Ableton helps with this quite a bit. There are several different ways to save a session and they are discussed in this session.
We also discuss how to render or "mix down" your sessions to play on other devices, in other studios or use in DJ sets.
Notes on Saving and Exporting
Save = Command S
Save Set As = Shift>Command S
Save a Copy = Creates a New Folder of Current Session
Collect All and Save = Collects all assets of current session into the root folder for that session. Very helpful if working on multiple computers or in multiple studios. There is nothing worse than getting to a new studio or on stage and not having all of your files in your session. Bad newsâ€¦
Rendering files = exporting all tracks or individual tracks as audio for mixing on other programs or playing full mix of song and creating song files for releasing to the public.
