Change Number of Pre/Post Fader Slots

Hi there,
I frequently want to change the number of pre/post fader slot for all channels. It is pretty time consuming, to do that for each channel manually. Is there a way to do this globally in some settings menu? Or if not, does anyone know a clever workaround?

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Does the Q-Link works here?

Thanks for the reply.
Q-Link doesn’t work here.
I tried with dragging the green pre/post-bar and with the menu something like “make this slot the last pre slot”, while havin Q-Link on. Doesn’t work.
It would be really cool, being able to set things like that globally, or save it as a default.

I tried using the Mixer > Pre/Post toggle key command with Q-link and it worked. Give it a try.


I’m not sure, if I understand, what you mean.
There is a pre/post toggle for the sends, and that is linkable, but I’m talking about insert effects. I don’t see a pre/post toggle, for the inserts, that is linkable.

Sorry; I didn’t catch that you meant for inserts. No, the Pre/Post toggle only works on Sends.
You should create a new post requesting a key command toggle for the Inserts to toggle Pre/Post. Make sure you tag the post ‘Feature Request
