Say you record 5 takes across 16 tracks or so. Manually selecting each take for playback, mixdown, editing, etc. takes forever. It’s also easy to make mistakes as you scroll down the screen trying to click the proper take on each track and also not miss a track. When comparing takes, you want to instantly switch between them, not spend 2 or three minutes clicking, scrolling and double checking.
There’s got to be a faster simpler way to select the take you want across every track.
