The user manual states that Snapshots are useful if you want to compare different versions of a mix. Sounds great.
I was getting excited about using this feature until I read that ‘Automation data is not saved in MixConsole snapshots’. This makes the feature pretty useless for me. Any alternative mix is probably going to involve different automation data.
In my case, it is inconceivable that an alternative mix would not contain some automation changes.
I don’t usually create more than a single mix for a project, but now that the idea has been suggested to me by the Snapshot documentation, it would be great to have a complete and easy facility to accomplish this.
Unless I’m missing something here (always possible) it seems that the only way to create and save different mixes of the same project is to save a different version of a project for each different mix. This could become unwieldy and dangerous.
Is there actually a way to save different mixes within a single project?
