Suggestions for organizing the mixer

Mon Aug 02, 2021 9:21 am

Hi guys, I am a newbie here.
Does anyone have suggestions for organizing the mixer and at the same time not having the arrangement window cluttered with 30 auxiliary tracks?
Thanks in advance.

Using the Environment's mixer. Not ideal, but permits channelstrips permutation at will without requiring tracks re-organisation.

You could put all of the AUX tracks in a track stack - folder or summing as needed.

I use summing stacks in most cases, and I put AUX channels into the appropriate stacks.

I also tend to use the Single view in the mixer a lot these days. Maps nicely to my X-Touch and helps me focus. Multiple mixer windows on screenset 3 - one for Tracks, one for Single, one for All.
