When I run out of headroom in a session I will often open the mixer section then I try to find all channels, instruments, groups and VCA faders routed to the master buss. I will select these channels combining mouse clicks with the shift or command functions. Once all the relevant mixer channels have been selected I can right click then assign them all to a new VCA fader channel. I can then lower the volume of the entire session before it hits the main stereo buss regardless of automation etc.
This is straightforward enough as it is but when my track count gets high it becomes tedious to select all the channels that are routed to the master output buss (especially with sub groups and other VCA groups already in place). It would be nice to pull down an item in a menu that says something like Select all channels with outputs equal to “Stereo 1&2” or “Mix LR” , etc. or even "Create VCA group for all channels with outputs equal to “Stereo Out” etc.
Is there a way to do this now? I’m not seeing it. Thanks
