I also got this warning after upgrading from 8.0.0 to 8.0.10. I work on two identical systems (Master PC with another PC running VE Pro), one setup each at the studio and at home. My template is just over 1200 tracks total (including groups, FX, folders, etc.). My project template is all stereo VST tracks with one mono track for guitar, and one stereo track for WAV imports. Today I am at home, and I just opened the project I initiated at the studio yesterday, and the error is present. I have been using Group Tracks to handle mixing, but I noticed recently even if I have a reverb send as a pre, the wet signal is still being passed regardless of the fader dB, so I decided to try VCA faders for a project to see how I like them.
Yesterday I added 42 VCA tracks to the setup, and the errors are associates with only 10 of those VCA tracks. I was looking for a pattern or commonality, but the VCA tracks’ groups are not sequential in number. The last 3 VCAs I created are the first three listed in the error report, and the other 7 are all parents of nested VCA groups, and other VCAs were added after them. These 7 are my main group faders: Woods, Brass, Perc Dry, Perc Wet, Strings, Synth, and Vox, and they are only visible in MixConsole3, but there are 2 other VCAs visible there as well as 4 group channels. I just don’t see any pattern here.
Once I clear the error screen, there are actually no issues with the project. The errors say “The track is kept, but cannot be modified,” but since these are simply VCAs with limited functionality, all they are required to do in my project is adjust the volume, and they do successfully do that. In my case this appears to be a pesky error window I will have to close during project launch, but if the OP cannot record on those tracks, that would be a problem.
I will be back in the studio tomorrow, and I will see if the error appears there.
