Exporting your project (mix-down)

When you are happy with your mix or edits, it's time to export your project to one stereo file. Tap on the folder icon on the top-left of your screen. This will open a pop-up menu where one of the last items is 'Mixdown project'. Select that item.

  • Enter a file name without a path or extension, like MySuperMix
  • Choose the bit resolution: note that Android players usually cannot handle more than 16-bit, but your desktop computers and Audio Evolution Mobile will load higher resolution files just fine.
  • Choose the file type: wav/aiff/flac/ogg. Very important note on MP3: mp3 is patented technology and requires an annual fee of $15000 a year plus a fee per unit sold. It's clear that we cannot afford such amounts of money and the cost would be higher than what we make from this app. That is why we cannot include a mp3 encoder. For mp3 decoding, Google paid for the mp3 license, so that is no problem, but they did not pay for the encoding fee. But, the OGG format is just as good, if not better, in compressing audio files and all Android players can use it!
  • Not all combinations are possible: resolution is only applicable to wav and aiff.
  • Choose to export your mixed down file to the Project folder (see the tutorial 'A word on projects' for where the mixed down sample ends up) or the Music folder. If you choose the latter, the media database will get updated so you can play your file in another media player.
  • After pressing ok and succesfully mastering your file, the app will ask you if you want to share your work. If yes, you could email it, send it to SoundCloud, DropBox etc. if you have such apps installed.

To get the mixed-down file from your device onto your desktop or into the Cloud

  • Connect your Android device to your PC (or Mac) and using the File Explorer, locate the mixed-down sample. If you do not see it, you might have encountered a bug in the MTP protocol (not our bug!!) and you need to reboot your device to see any recently created files.
  • Or if you want to upload to the cloud: use a file browser like the free ES File Explorer, browse to the file, long-tap it and select 'Share'. If you don't have this app, you can install it from the Play Store
