I often need to make multiple exports of the same song with different tracks enabled: A mixdown of everything, a backing track for gigs with just synths enabled, a backing track for the singer with all his guitar/vocals muted and sometimes multiple backing tracks for other band members.
What I’ve tried
- I’ve tried using VCA faders for each ‘mix’, but this won’t work since a track can only be linked to 1 group.
- Folders won’t work because of the same problem as with VCA faders
- Mix snapshots won’t work because I want to recall mute/solo, and mix snapshots won’t do that, aside of the fact that then I wouldn’t be able to use them for what they’re for.
- I’ve tried using groups and sends, but that doesn’t work either because then I’d have multiple tracks of the same instrument going to the main output, causing the mix to change.
Does anyone have any tips on how I can create multiple mixes with different tracks muted that would be easily to recall?
