Thank you Anorax!Anorax wrote:And also, enabling the use of send tracks for the individual outputs in multiple-output plugins, such as Kontakt.
I have pointed out this routing shortcoming repeatedly since several Mixcraft versions ago and was getting the feeling nearly no one else saw it as an issue. And the more I explore workarounds, the more frustrated I get.
I am currently working on a project using a multi-out VSTi. I want to use a send bus to apply various amounts of compression and another for various amounts of reverb.
Since child tracks cannot be routed to send bus's, I cut/paste each child tracks content to a new native track and then set up send bus's.
But then I want to send the group to a submix.
If I set up the submix and adjust the level fader (for example) the send bus outputs are not changed, so it throws my carefully prepared submix out of whack and I have to go back and readjust the send levels.
The suggested workaround for that is to substitute output bus's for submix bus's.
OK, now I can route send bus outputs along with the group I previously had on a submix into an output bus instead.
Now my "submix" has no mute/solo functions, which is relatively minor, but it would be nice......
But now the output bus appears to be routed to post main fader which creates a whole new set of weird mixing issues.
*The above description can be hard to follow, see my revised graphics in slides 26, 27 and 28 here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/ ... slide=id.p
And please note that this is based solely on my experiments and observations and is a work in progress. I would appreciate any corrections or comments. I mean no disrespect to Acoustica and don't intend to point any complaints at their efforts, I am just trying to present my case for these feature changes/improvements.
And again, if I have something wrong, I would sure like to know it!
But unless I am missing something simple (Happens a lot) this is just weird and is a pretty serious shortcoming.
So again, my feature suggestion re-worded:
We need the option of routing child tracks to send bus inputs.
AND we need the option of routing send bus outputs to submix channels.
Problem fixed, flexible mixing options available.
