My usual workflow is:
1 Make copy of untouched vocal performance and put aside as safety/ restore option
2 Bounce sections of audio, say 30 seconds roughly (long sections make for slow graphic response in variaudio)
3 Work on variaudio, pitch, stretch etc until satisfied
In most cases I leave things at this stage. Sometimes I might duplicate the edited track and once again bounce audio.
This gives me the choice of being able revert, compare and rework small sections. With everything on screen, labelled and clear.
Thanks, Parrotspain! I like the idea of making all the copies, especially that last one you describe after step 3 so as to have the VariAudio edits available later on for review or further editing.
Does no-one use the intended VariAudio function, "flatten"? How does it process the audio differently than bounce!
