I will explain better using one instrument…
I have an album project. Everything has been tracked in individual song folders. I have mixed the first song. (The 14 songs have a number of elements that are very similar - 16 drum tracks, 2 bass tracks, hammond, backing vocals, 2 guitars with 2 mics each) Edits and some mixing/automation have been done as per the artist’s request.
I want Tom 1 to have the exact same setting in song 2 as in song 1. Routing is the same in song 1 and song 2.
I right click on the Tom 1 channel in song 1 and save a channel preset.
I open song 2 and load that preset to Tom 1.
Almost everything is the same as song 1 - except - track level and panning. (I have to resort to writing everything down and manually apply the changes and when you have around 30 tracks it’s incredibly tedious)
The only way I can get that information to Tom 1 is to “export tracks” from song 1, “import tracks” into song 2 and then drag the Tom 1 audio file on to the new Tom 1 track. But, then the routing of the new track has to redone. This is another long workaround.
In Nuendo 1 and 2, (maybe 3) it used to work as expected. Level and panning were saved and applied.
Perhaps we could have an option of what information gets saved when you save a track preset? Like we have the option to choose what elements are linked when you use channel link in the mixer.
