I’m trying a new way of adapting my workflow to Nuendo. I would like to add multiple tracks with a specific configuration. Something like this.
I’d like to create this block of tracks, in a folder, with group channel and colors, instantly. I tried to find a way of doing this automatically. I looked at Clip Packages, but they only save content and its position, but no track configuration. I looked at Track Presets but they contain channel strip and insert settings for a single track. I read there are Multi-Track Presets but they only take the tracks that are in the project and apply individual track presets to the sequence of those existing tracks. But nothing I looked at actually created a set configuration of new tracks.
Maybe I don’t know what the correct term for this is. Maybe there is no way of doing that so I looked at Macros, but I could not figure out how to do the following:
- create 8 audio channels
- select those 8 and put them all in a folder
- select those 8 again and route them to a new group channel
- move the group channel to the top of that folder (as for my purpose, I don’t want the group channel to be in the special Group Tracks folder)
- Applies my color scheme to it (folder gray, tracks blue, group yellow)
Sort of like “Project Part Preset”. Is there something like this?
The only thing I can think of right now is keeping a “spare” folder with all tracks in the project and then duplicate this, when needed. The only thing is the routing is not correct and I have to reroute the copied channels to the copied group channel in that folder. It works, but as I said, I was looking for an even more elegant way, if there is any.
Update: After some searching I found this function in Logic. There you can create such a configuration as Track Stack and then save this stack as an audio patch. I then just had to recall my patch and all audio tracks, routing, and all track settings with EQ and plugins have been recalled. Handy.
