I would like a key command that opens the routing menu for the selected track. The key command would essentially click “Stereo Out” on the selected track, and then I would use the arrow keys to scroll through to options and select a bus. You could have a key command for input routing also.
Another annoyance is that Instrument tracks have no routing information in the inspector. You have to go to the mixer view or channel settings view to change the routing of an instrument track. If all tracks had an in/out routing in the inspector views this would be a lot simpler, and the key command I’m describing could be programmed to be applicable to all tracks and not excluding instrument tracks.
Nope. The icons aren’t even consistent, compared to an audio track. On an audio track you have two icons, one for Stereo input, one for Stereo output. On the instrument track inspector, they use the same icons but instead it is for MIDI Input, and the VST instrument it is routed to. Makes perfect sense, eh? To use the same icon for different things?
On an instrument track all 4 of these parameters should all be on the inspector pane where im likely to use them frequently. In, Out, MIDI, and VST routing. Thats what I’d like to see on my instrument inspector pane.
I’ve attached a picture to show the icons I’m describing.
No, the icon is very consistently used for the same thing: input to the track and output from the track. That the input in your case is stereo in, means nothing: the icon is for input - what’s next to it is the current one in use. I do agree with you though, that it would be very convenient to see the audio output of the used VSTi in the inspector as well.
