folder tracks as bus

Recommended Posts

I would like also to see in "folder" option to route it to a specific BUS.

Instead of routing many synth tracks to one bus I would like just to do one click for folder and auto-route it to selected bus.

You can actually do that. Click the folder to select it, and it will select all tracks within it. Then just CTL+click the output of any selected track and change it to the bus you want. All tracks  will change outputs to that bus.

Would like to see it as in Studio one

Looks almost exactly like Cakewalk, with the addition of holding down CNRL

I personally like the original suggestion. The folder as a bus. You don't have to use the functionality if you don't wish to, but it's there is you want it. KISS.

With this proposal, if "bus" were a property of "folder" such that all tracks in that folder were assigned to a specific bus, what would happen when a new track were moved to the folder? Would it automatically be forced to the folder's designated bus? Would it retain its original bus? Would there be a check box someplace to make the default behavior one or the other of these two (and maybe something else)?

Right now, as I understand it, the option exists to assign all audio tracks currently in a folder to be assigned to an existing bus, a new bus, etc. en masse by holding down Ctrl and selecting an output.

At present, I don't make extensive use of busses, but probably will during the coming year; I do make use of multiple outputs and folders and I am wondering how this proposed option might work.

It seems to me that a checkbox that says "[   ] automatically assign all audio and instrument tracks in each folder to the output of the first track in the folder" should be unchecked by default so as not to  catch users by surprise (maybe with an "Are you sure?" warning).   I suppose there could also be another checkbox that says "[   ]allow new tracks added to a folder assigned to a single bus to retain their assigned busses."

Interesting possibilities.

My example is - I have recorded my sampled drums on iPad. I export them to Cakewalk project, choose them - add to the folder - select bus or create new. Now all my drums are routed to special drum bus, where I can do mixing.

I know it might not be exactly what your looking for but you could create a track template. These templates can contain folder and multiple tracks that also include buses. I have some track templates that consist of 12 tracks nested in a folder. This is my drum template for doing almost exactly what you do.

PS- Track templates also include routing.

Here's a good example. I made this video several years ago but it still works today.

I agree with the OP 100%. Studio One's "folder as bus" feature is incredibly useful. In Cake you have to create an aux track and place it in the folder and route all the tracks in the folder to the aux track (which acts as a bus). Sure there are workarounds, but it would be simple and clean to add this feature.

What happens in Studio One if you have a folder assigned to one bus and then you add a track to that folder that is assigned to a different bus and/or output?
