If you rename your project, the version saved under the previous name will not be overwritten. This may be handy if you wish to make changes to your project without overwriting a previous save version - e.g. "Fire Beat" and "Fire Beat - changed Drum Sounds"

Export Song...: Export your Song as a single .wav. or as stems. Clicking "Export" from the Export Master tab will create a .wav of your Song. Clicking "Export" from the Export Stems tab will create individual audio files in .wav format of each of your decks. You can also choose to decrease the volume for each of your stem files by 6dB using the "Decrease audio output for stem files by 6dB". We recommend using this when sharing your project audio stems with a mastering engineer.
