    my bounced files are longer than original

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'm de-noising lots of stems and tracks for a tv production. To not bog down my system completely I try to bounce stems and then replace the original audio file with the bounced one. ONLY, the bounced stems are all longer than the original. Way longer actually: a one minute long file comes back 6 sec longer.
    All files were imported via omf from Final Cut as they were, 48k 16 bit. My session in 48k 24 bit. I made sure timecode is identical (29.97 drop).

    Why are my bounced files longer. Any help is very much appreciated, thank you!

    The mystery deepens:

    in the scenario described before the way I put the file back into a new track was by dragging it there from the folder.

    Now I tested the same file by 'importing' it via 'importing audio file' and now the length is exact and correct.

    Of course I'm happy that I can keep on working BUT:

    why is that so? What setting do I have wrong that this happens....?

    Anybody ?

    I bet it has to do with your sample rate. You probably bounced it as 44.1K but then imported it back into a 48K session without converting. That's be my guess!

    My thoughts exactly. Was it, Karl?

    The difference between 44.1 and 48 on a 60 second file would be exactly 5.28 seconds, so (allowing for you rounding off the differences) my money's also with JeffroMixesYou.
    The pessimist sees the glass as half empty. The optimist sees it as half full. The realist just drains the darn thing and gets a refill!

    The import function gives you a chance to convert the file to the session parameters. It can also move the audio files in to the session's folder to keep everything tidy.
