Automated Bounce Management For Your DAW.

How To Use Bounce Butler

  1. Open Bounce Butler and select a bunch of session files that you want bounced.
  2. Select the options for the type of files you want bounced from the sessions.
  3. Enter a phone number or email address that you want notifications sent too.
  4. Press bounce and walk away. Bounce Butler will notify you when he's done.

Selecting Sessions

Using "List Mode" lets you select more than one session across multiple folders easily. You can also add more sessions later by clicking the "Add Sessions" button after selecting some sessions.

Selecting Files With Smart Folders

Selecting lots of session files is WAY fast if you use smart folders... here's a gif & a video on how to do that.

Bouncing With Markers In Pro Tools

If you have a marker numbered as "998" at the start of a session, and a marker labeled "999" at the end, Bounce Butler can bounce the part of the session that is between those markers.


Bounce Butler can text your OR email you when he's done bouncing. All you have to do is enter your contact info. If you're outside of the United States, you'll need to be sure to enter the proper country code if you'd like a text message. Bounce Butler's servers are in the US, so you'll need to enter your number in a way that would make your number reachable from the US.

Bouncing Offline in Pro Tools

Using something other than the default selection for bouncing is something we're working on improving.

Currently with Pro Tools 2019.6 and later, Bounce Butler gives you the option to bounce between markers 998 & 999. Our hope is to add those features to earlier versions of Pro Tools.

Bounce Butler "Accessibility Control" In System Preferences 

Setting up Cubase

Cubase needs a custom "Key Command" for Bounce Butler to be able to set up bounces for you. This should only take you a few seconds to set up. 

Logic Pro X stems with Bounce Butler 

The easiest way to make stems with Logic is to save your session as a "Folder" instead of a "Package". This allows you to easily solo out any stem you want to bounce, and then save it as it's own session. You can then select as many of these Logic Pro X session files as you want with Bounce Butler. 

Uninstalling Bounce Butler

    • Open Finder and click the "Go" menu.
