Thanks for paying attention to this Martin.
I think there is something wrong with the “Show Output Chain”-function in Nuendo.
To sum up: you can clearly see from the picture in my first post that my NA-group is (direct-)routed to 4 outputs. 3 of them are switched on and 1 is switched off. In my opinion “Show Output Chain” should clearly show exactly this output chain, resulting in a representation of 4 outputs (faders), and (as an option?) it should show the side-routings to audio tracks which have this NA-group as its input and maybe it should also show aux-sends-destinations?
Nuendo though shows something completely unexpected as you can see…yes; it shows 1 of those 4 (direct-)outputs (the one that is switched off), and it shows this audio-track which has the NA-group as its input, but it doesn’t show a proper “Output Chain”, far from that indeed…very strange.
Attached you’ll find 2 screenshots of this NA-group in my MixConsole.
- The first screenshot is a picture of my MixConsole with my NA-stem (=group) selected and shown after the “SHOW SELECTED CHANNELS ONLY”-command. You can clearly see, again, the 4 outputs it’s (direct-)routed to in the Direct “Rack”. Also you can see the I/O-routing in the Routing “Rack”. In order to have a 5.1 panner in this channel slot I, need to have the widest (=5.1) output which I want this channel to send to as the output In this rack.
- The second screenshot is this NA-stem shown after the “SHOW CHANNELS THAT ARE CONNECTED TO THE FIRST SELECTED CHANNEL”-command.
You can see the 6 groups and 2 FX-returns it derives its signals from, and 1 audio-track which derives its signals from the NA-stem. Here you can see clearly that this is simply an audio-track which has its input-routing routed from the NA-group.
For reference, I’ve attached a screenshot with this NA-stem shown, and all the (4) outputs it outputs to, and the audio-track which has the NA-group as its input.
Now, again, my question (in other words)…is “Show output Chain” actually working properly? Why doesn’t it show (all) the buses where this track feeds to?
What do you think? And; is this working properly on your system?
And, please notice; this NA-stem is only an example. “Show Output Chain” doesn’t work properly (IMHO) on all of my buses, in all of my projects, and on both of my rigs…
Thanks very much for your attention.
