Hi Neonnebula -
I assume when you say "thereâ€™s no audio" you mean you're getting a blank audio file.. I'm not an Ableton user myself, so I can only offer some generic observations on exporting/bouncing..
- Make sure all audio is routed to the correct destination -- the source for the bounce (i.e. Master)
- Check the start position/range for the bounce
- Bounce to a standard format (WAV, 24-bit) -- don't bounce to 32-bit
- Try bouncing both offline and in realtime to see what happens
There's not a lot of description as to your setup -- I'd guess any Ableton users out there who might have useful suggestions to offer would want to know a little more about your specific setup/process..
- Where are you testing the file? (Live, other DAWs, iTunes..?)
- How is the audio routed in Live (an internal routing issue seems like the most likely culprit)
- What View are you in when you call up the Export window (apparently this may be related to the issue of blank exports, but again, I'm not a Live guy so I can't get into that..)
- What are the exact steps you're doing? You play the song, you hear everything playing out the Master output, then you call up the Export window, and...
I'm attaching a video on Bouncing in Live 10 -- I don't know what your level of expertise is, but maybe you'll see something there you hadn't thought of..
