Add Track Input Gain Lock Control

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to lock Track Input Gain controls so that they couldn't be adjusted again until unlocked. I use Input Gain controls for gain staging when I start a mix and don't intentionally touch them again.

However, I can't avoid my cursor finding its way over them multiple times during a mix. So, I do sometimes adjust them by mistake and never remember they'd been before I bumped them. That leaves me fiddling with them for some time trying to get the track level and sound back to where it was. Input Gain affects everything downstream and changing by mistake affects any dynamic controls on the track.

one thought - use automation to "write" the setting as a very short envelope, then turn off write. the gain will bounce to the level you set. adjust the gain, then once happy, enable the automation write, turn the gain know a bit to lock it in, turn off write.
