Hello all, I’m a long-time lurker and first time poster and was wondering if any advanced users here could help me out.
I spend a lot of time tracking guitars. Currently I track two takes at once – an amp signal for the song and a DI signal for possible reamping. Currently the only way to do that (that I’m aware of) is two route and arm two separate audio tracks and record them both at once. While this continues to work for me, it also becomes messy and cumbersome when working on large projects that demand 30 or more guitar tracks.
When Steinberg introduced Track Versions I was hoping there would be a way to ‘record two track versions at once’, that way my default layer and waveform would be the amp signal, and if I ever needed to access the DI, I could just flip over to the DI track layer underneath of it. I’ve never been able to find a way to get this to work. Imagine if underneath of all of my guitar takes was access to its DI file, rather than a whole separate track or folder taking up precious screen real estate and becoming more and more messy!
Does anyone out there know how this could be accomplished?
The closest I’ve come is to create a 2nd track layer underneath my amp signal track and dragging the DI track onto it, then deleting the empty DI track. This takes lots of extra time. Am I missing something?
