I’ve set up a template with output groups and folders for drums, bass, synths, effects, etc. with each group track in its respective folder. As I write the song, I put each new track in whichever folder it belongs.
In the template, I tried to make use of both the channel visibility in the mixer as well as the track visibility in the arranger functions, with the presets like ‘bass tracks only’ in the arranger or ‘bass channels only’ in the mixer.
The issue I have is - whenever I select a preset, say ‘bass channels only’ in the mixer channel visibility, it shows the bass output group and and folder as I specified in the template just fine, but it also shows every other track/channel I created regardless of which folder they are in. Conversely, when I select ‘bass tracks only’ in the arranger track visibility, it only shows the bass folder itself and output group, hiding any tracks I created and put in the folder.
This is counter-intuitive for me. I’d expect the arranger view ‘bass only’ to show anything I put in the bass folder and ‘bass channels only’ in the mixer to do the same. Am I missing something here??? I’d really like to avoid having manually add tracks/channels to each visibility preset and save it every single time I add a track.
Thanks for any suggestions, this is driving me mad
