Can we have volume and pan slider on Track folder that worked relative to the volume of each tracks within?

I know we can send the tracks inside folder to specific bus, however if Mute, Solo and Arm can make it to the folder, why not volume and pan as well? It will be very convenience for our workflow without assigning new bus for the folder.

Thanks & warm regards!

You can kind of do this already by selecting the folder, then using groups:

Now moving any of the faders or pans, will move the others relative to your movement.

If you want to adjust one in isolation, just hold down the CTRL key while your doing it.

Awesome trick bro, however having Volume and pan on track folder will be better since we have empty space in track folder interface. Just an idea to save few click of grouping.

Not a bad suggestion. Basically turning track folders into DCAs. I personally just bus everything that should be bussed together and then you get the same functionality, but with the extra flexibility of the bus (such as plugins)

I do the same exact thing. buses have 2 main functions for my use.

1- FX sends (a place to route your FX using sends)

2- group busing (a place to control over all signal/levels)

3 - Exporting stems easily :)

This kind of makes me wanna try Studio One again. 😕

That dropdown with option for creating a bus is brilliant.

I may start a thread about this, but Pro Tools, after being a decade behind Cakewalk with Folders, has now lept ahead. Put tracks into a folder, and it acts as an advanced Bus or Aux track, with tons of routing and control options.
