I work with folders more in recording sessions. So The macro is as follows:
Track Versions - Select Tracks with Same Version ID
Edit - Monitor
Edit - Record Enable
Edit - Show Lanes
When Using VST Mixer to select it would often not Record Enable or Show Lanes or both, but not always.
Sometimes it wouldn’t select the other tracks, but would do the “edits” on the track selected.
Thats your UC… assuming you are dev.
I use to:
select previous (which would always be the folder since the selected was always at the top)
that didn’t work reliably at all.
At first I thought I could just turn on Group Editing in the folder and then always select the first track and
-but Group Editing doesn’t seem to include the monitor and record enable. Works now though.You just have to select everything in the folder and make a new version to start with, then delete the first version before starting a new session from the template.
I have a separate macro that does both
edit Chanel settings
and it works when all of the folder tracks are selected to show channel settings of the first track which is the audio track, and the VSTi from the second which is the midi track, or for Guitars, Drums etc. The Chanel settings from the first track which is a group track.
Thats an extra button press, but as it turns out it is easier to think about that way.
