Supports most of the major DAWs, except for bitwig and reason. Uses macros to export project lists ala render or export audio.

Haven't tested yet, but looking forward to some exports in reaper.

Maybe I can answer this question?

"Bouncing" tracks is an old technique, from a time when recordings were still on 4-track or 8-track machines (think Beatles and older), to save tracks for new recordings.

Nowadays you can still save system resources when for instance bouncing MIDI tracks to audio, so you save all the processing power for the VSTs you might use. But then you "bake in" the sounds, and cannot change them anymore. You can also bounce a direct (DI box) and a microphoned signal (for instance of an upright bass) track to a new track to further process it there, so you use only one compressor, eq, and so forth...

A https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=%22bouncing+tracks%22&ia=web search brings out things like:

If we ask people for single HD "stems", it's usually also a mix of several tracks, like lead & backup vocals, several layered guitars, and so on... so you can basically think of "bouncing" as in creating submixes.

Hope that helps?

Basically, upon opening, you select your daw, audio settings then you can drag and drop project files into a big list. Some extra settings if needed (selection area, folder for output) and (still untested here) it will automate exporting each item in the big list to a master ouput mix.

Say, you've got several months of reaper project files and you'd like to listen to every one. Instead of manually exporting each file, or creating your own scripts, this app will do what i described.

More of an Export than a bounce.
