This is for Artist Series/S1 Users frustrated by the new updated features offered via the Avid Control software but ONLY WORK ON PRO TOOLS.
I’ve figured out a workaround for the VCA Spill feature that works great on Pro Tools but not at all for us Cubase/Nuendo Users.
Step 1: Make a Layout with all of your VCA Tracks and include an ATTENTION FADER.
Step 2: Pick a Soft Key to assign the “Show Connected Tracks Agent” in Nuendo.
HOW TO USE IT:
Step 1: Launch your VCA layout on your hardware, then select the wanted VCA.
Step 2: Use the Soft Key to spill the tracks in Cubase/Nuendo.
Step 3: Use the Attention Fader to adjust whichever track in the spill group you wanted to work on.
Obviously, it’s not perfect since it’s a workaround. But it is almost as fast and just as effective. Think of it as “3+1” instead of “2+2.” It gets you to the same place a few mico-seconds slower. Try it out and let me know what you think.
