no my friend - you make it easier by having a better fitted out
mixer and a proper audio patchbay matrix in Muse :)
We could possibly make this easier by:
- adding one "Default" audio out for every song (this is actually done
- adding one "Default" audio in, similar to the audio out.
- create some setting: have a setting like "auto-route from/to these
tracks: [list]", so that every newly created WaveTrack has [list1]
tracks routed to its input, and has its output routed to [list2]
You do this by having a selectable audio input spin box for
selecting your HW input (or audio track input) and the **new** trim
pot (well done you Robert!) as an input module on all audio
mixer strips and do away altogether with the Input tracks.
And by default 3 aux sends per channel and 3 returns in the mixer
permanently with a permanent master output bus as well. All this can
be configured but should be there by default imo.
It is reasonable to make assumtions as to what a default system
should consist of, but I would like to see a 'session dialogue'
where you could tell MusE " i want 32 Midi tracks, 24 audio tracks,
3 auxs, Master Bus yes/no, automatic incremental connection to real
HW outputs/inputs" etc.
Otherwise the default mixer should have a stereo Master Bus, 3 auxs
per audio channel strip and 3 aux returns and maybe 4 stereo sub
groups summing to the master bus automatically.
Your outputs from the mixer channels simply go to a destination, via
a matrix patchbay, which may be an audio track, the master bus or
audio HW outputs. Click at an intersection in the matrix and the
connection is made. Quick and efficient. Look at ardour3 - not ideal
but a good starting point.
then you have no need for audio I/O tracks at all. ( i have never
seen the point to this - as you all know )
one little aside - i've discovered that Ardour3 has a multi core
option now for multiple processor assignment. when it's enabled for
2 processors it causes bucket loads of fatal audio clicks on screen
redraws here on my main DAW machine.. i reported this to Paul Davis
and he said he knew of this. I suggested a tool tip or note
somewhere to alert people of this possibility. His reply - no need
for a note. Bloody stupid. It took me many days to work this out. If
you have a multi-core machine (virtually everyone) you WILL enable
this by default when you see it. Many others who will find this
issue won't bother perservering - they will just dump Ardour 3 as a
poor piece of software. Too bad.
moral? listen to your user base. they sometimes know better than
you do ;)
the reason i mention this is simply that I thankfully don't get
treated like a bimbo by you guys. I much prefer the treatment aound
