Track Inspector

Each track will display its page in the inspector when selected. Depending on the track, the properties shown will be different.

Track Properties

Track properties are basic properties that the track has.

../_images/track-properties.png

Track Name

Name of the track

Direct Out

The track that this track routes its output to.

Instrument

If the track is an Instrument Track, the instrument plugin for this track.

Inputs

If the track takes input, there will be an input selection section. This is mainly used for Recording.

MIDI Inputs

../_images/track-inputs.png
Input Device

Device to read MIDI input from

MIDI Channels

MIDI channels to listen to (other channels will be ignored)

Audio Inputs

../_images/audio-track-inputs.png
Left Input

Left audio input port to listen to

Right Input

Right audio input port to listen to

Mono toggle

Duplicate the left signal on both channels

Gain knob

Adjust input gain

MIDI FX/Inserts

These are slots for dropping audio or MIDI effects that will be applied to the signal as it passes through the track.

../_images/midi-fx-inserts.png

MIDI FX are processed after the input and piano roll events and before the instruments in instrument tracks, or before the inserts in MIDI tracks.

Note

Only MIDI and Instrument tracks support MIDI FX.

Inserts are processed in order. For instrument tracks, the inserts will be added onto the signal coming from the instrument, and for other tracks they will be added on the incoming signal.

Todo

Separate MIDI FX/inserts and expand more.

Aux Sends

These are aux sends to other tracks or plugin side-chain inputs. These are generally useful for side-chaining or applying additional effects to channels, such as reverb.

../_images/track-sends.png

The first 6 slots are for pre-fader sends and the last 3 slots are for post-fader sends. The pre-fader slots will send the signal before the fader is processed, and the post-fader slots will send the signal after the fader is applied.

Fader

Fader section to control the volume and stereo balance.

../_images/track-fader.png

To change the fader or stereo balance amount, click and drag their respective widgets. You can reset them to their default positions with Right click ‣ Reset.

The meter displays the amplitude of the signal in dBFS as it is processed live. The following values are displayed next to the meter for additional reference.

Peak

Peak signal value.

RMS

Root Mean Square of the signal value.

The following controls are available for controlling the signal flow.

Record

Arm the track for recording.

Mute

Mutes the track, meaning no sound will be sent to its direct out.

Note

The track will still be processed, so if you are looking to decrease DSP usage, try disabling plugins instead.

Solo

Soloes the track. If any track is soloed, only the soloed tracks will produce sounds.

Listen

Similar to solo, except it dims the volume of other tracks instead of muting them. The dim amount can be controlled in the control room described in Control Room.
