Groups within groups

Post by Maxadax » Wed Aug 13, 2014 7:34 pm

I'd like to be able to group tracks inside of other groups. I often find that I'd like to compress different parts inside of a group together before reaching the bus compressor on the group track. It would mean that I can be more efficient and won't have to create new busses every time I want to do more complicated techniques to achieve bus compression, or whatever else effect I would use on a group track.

Racks within racks is so much fun, and I imagine groups within groups would be too.

I think they worry about gui clarity.

To illustrate - Heres four groups: Loops[1,2,3,4] Bass1[5,6,7] Bass2 [8,9,10,11] , bass2original[12], bass fx[13,14]

Heres what they fear - Bassgroups[ Loops[1,2,3,4] ,Bass1[5,6,7,Bass2 [8,9,10,11,bass2original[12]],bass fx[13,14] ]

now, does that look a little confusing? That's the problem they would need to solve, and its an issue throughout Live. There is not a clear uniform handling of nested hierarchies. EG in the second example, is bass fx a sibling of Bass1 or Bass2? It's hard to see isn't it.

Tl;dr - I agree, but its not a simple solution, they need to address some big things.
