Yeah, I know of that option. Maybe this was a Nuendo 5.1 option only.
You could copy the inserts and then highlight the rest of the tracks and click this paste icon and BAM it would put those plugs on all the highlighted tracks. When dealing with 40+ tracks this is ideal where your suggestion would take a while.
I have watched that video and its a great video. But it does not cover this one thing (as far as I could tell).
When I set up a mix template I put the Steven Slate VCC on Neve and drive it to 30%. In Nuendo I would copy that channel (Copy button on the lower left) then highlight all the tracks and paste it (again, button on lower left) and it would paste the exact plug in and settings across the mixer.
Just watched that video…not all of it but I’m going to finish it off now. Really great stuff. Anyway in the mix console hold down alt clack the pluging and drag it to the desired channel. That copies it. You can also do it in batches for as many channels as u want. I haven’t watched the rest but it’s in there.
It’s easier if you know what you intend to do first. You can just select all the channels, link or Qlink them, then select and setup your insert (or other) effect and it will automatically do the same on all selected channels.
If you’ve already setup the effect in one channel, then select the other channels using alt click, then using the triangle pull down menu at the top rightmost corner of the mixer, select ‘copy first channels settings’, then again and this time select ‘paste to selected channels’. This will however indeed copy all channels settings.
If as above you’ve already setup the effect in one channel, but you only want to copy the particular insert effect, then select the other channels using alt click and then link the channels. Select the effect on the second selected channel and it will also appear on all selected channels. now go to the first channel and activate the effects window. Because all channels are linked, if you just do a tiny tweek of each of the controls (turn a knob 1 increment higher or lower then return it to it’s previous position) all the specific effects on all the other selected channels will spring to the same settings.
After watching Greg O’s videos I was thinking along the lines of what you just typed. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for spelling it out to me (and future readers of this post).
I will give this a test drive tonight!
OK, your methods work great. Only one issue. When I paste 30 channels of plug ins…Cubase wants to open 30 instances of that plug in. Is there a way to paste these plugs without the GUI opening for each instance?
