#70 insert-send and aux-send are pre fader


For people like me who use several reverb buses to receive instruments' signal with aux-send or insert-send this might be seen as a bug. Fading the instrument down would still leave it's reverberated signal in the mix, e.g. in Master in.

The best solution would be a toggle "pre/post fader" in aux-send and insert-send. But a hardcoded solution "post fader" would be fine as well.

    Excuse me! User error. Pre/post fade can be toggeled by putting the aux-send either the in- (pre fade) or the out-part (post fade) of the bus.

    Please close this ticket.

    As it turned out that aux sends in output buses have some limitations it would be very desirable to change aux sends in input buses to be post fader instead of pre fader.

    The most comfortable way would be an option pre or post fader.

    all plugin chains are pre-fader (ie. process happens before mixer.strip pan and gain/volume effect).

    actually, this is only relevant on audio buses and audio tracks, of course. on MIDI buses or tracks it doesn't even make sense, as the inserts only deal with the audio signal which are not affected directly by the MIDI channel pan/volume mixer controls --they are targeted to the MIDI sound module generators, either instrument plugins or external.

    that said, there won't be any post-fader plugin chains being planned in the near future. the respective send and dry-wet controls on each aux-send insert may be the only ones to take care for instead.
