Exporting Audio Tracks out of Logic Pro X
If you have ever needed to export audio tracks out of Logic Pro X and have used the track export feature, you’ve likely discovered that you can either do one selected track with Export > Track as Audio File or all tracks by using Export > All Tracks as Audio Files. That’s fine until you want to export a subset of tracks.
Exporting Audio Tracks from Logic Pro X
I’ve had an ongoing project where I need, say, 10 out of 20 tracks exported. I’ve been exploring ways to do this and asking around to some learned Logic Pro users. The final consensus appears to be that there are two techniques to export a subset of tracks: inclusion and exclusion.
Inclusion requires putting the desired tracks to be exported into a folder (an old school Folder, not a Track Stack), opening it up and choosing File > Export > All Tracks as Audio Files.
(or use ⇧ ⌘ E).
Exclusion requires turning the track on/off button to off for any tracks you do not wish to export, then using the Export > All Tracks as Audio Files function.
Since we can now select multiple tracks in Logic Pro X, it would be nice if track selection would define the tracks to be exported. Hopefully this is a feature we will see at some point in Logic Pro X’s development.
