Each track will display its page in the inspector when selected. Depending on the track, the properties shown will be different.
Track properties are basic properties that the track has.
Name of the track
The track that this track routes its output to.
If the track takes input, there will be an input selection section. This is mainly used for Recording.
- Input Device
Device to read MIDI input from
- MIDI Channels
MIDI channels to listen to (other channels will be ignored)
- 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
These are slots for dropping audio or MIDI effects that will be applied to the signal as it passes through the track.
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.
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.
Separate MIDI FX/inserts and expand more.
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.
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 section to control the volume and stereo balance.
To change the fader or stereo balance amount, click and drag their respective widgets. You can reset them to their default positions with.
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 signal value.
Root Mean Square of the signal value.
The following controls are available for controlling the signal flow.
Arm the track for recording.
Mutes the track, meaning no sound will be sent to its direct out.
The track will still be processed, so if you are looking to decrease DSP usage, try disabling plugins instead.
Soloes the track. If any track is soloed, only the soloed tracks will produce sounds.
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 Kontrollrum.
