I have an old template that I am currently regurgotangoclangoplexing for 5.1
I have set it up fine all seems to be working. All tracks are going through my 5.1 Audio settings… I only have one 5.1 set up in Audio Connections. No Stereo.
What is puzzling me is that in the mixer, some tracks are displaying with two blue activity bars (and a surround panner), and others are displaying 6 blue bars (and a surround panner). Even when I set up two tracks for the same instrument/patch I can see two different kinds of blue bar activity displays (see identical piccolo patches below).
Initially I thought this was because the tracks were initially set up for either stereo or 5.1, however this is not the case, because new 5.1 tracks taking a stereo intrument input show only two bars, even though the panner is 5.1
These tracks look identical in all other ways.
Can anyone explain to me what is happening here? How could I change one to the other?
Can anyone explain why?
thank you all,
