Well, my little dalliance with VCA faders didn’t last very long. Just converted back to groups. I like the concept, but VCA faders are way too fiddly to deal with, especially if you have to change something after initially adding faders to a new VCA.
Oh, well. I’ve been using groups forever, so it’s not like it’s unfamiliar territory.
I’ve been trying to get them into my workflow.
What I currently have is VCA Groups, 1 master VCA for all the VCA groups and Group busses.
aorn, this works for me. I’d suggest trying different scenarios. When I began with it I was like, oh hell no…this ain’t gonna work for me.
After some more tinkering I came up with something that does work for me…
It’s now my starting template.
I really want to love them, but I’m having difficulty with the UI. Perhaps I’m just not understanding the right way to do things.
I think the area of greatest frustration is that they don’t appear to respond to Quick Link. When I removed them from a project last night, I had to do three actions (click the little drop down, select from menu to remove, hit no on a confirmation dialog) times every fader in the project. It’s that sort of thing that makes them unpleasant to use.
