The 'export' bus can have any number of outputs.
Just open the output dialog and click 'Add' as many times
as required. Then bypass the default multichannel panner.

If you are doing a multichannel mix then you would normally
use the 'export' bus as the master output but you don't have
to. You could create it just to collect all the signals you
want to export.



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
