Tip: if you need to export audio from Mixcraft, you can choose to make each track into a separate audio file.

Hi,

It mixes down each child track in a submix as a separate track. There's no option to have it mix down the child tracks as a submix and still mix down everything else separately at the same time.

You could solo the submix track or tracks and mix that down the regular way to render the submix into a single file if you wanted.
