Remove the 12 return track limit!

Post by Adam Mantium » Fri Oct 17, 2014 10:27 pm

I find this severely limiting. I use return tracks for effects, busses, and matrix mixes and I run out fast.

Reason only have eight.

I do hope we get unlimited someday.

I use returns for headphone mixing and FX sends and I run out quickly

12 gives me 8 send return busses for fx and four for routing to an external mixer, I've found the more you add the more you add the higher w CPU so if they increase he limit its got to be at the same time as overall CPU is reduced...

Cheers

I'd rather decide how much cpu to use myself.

Just tried a demo of bitwig. Unlimited returns. Hmmm...

That is something that Bitwig DOES have, but no way to send the audio to other (or the same) return channels for crazy feedback FX mayhem like Live (or Logic X) has.

True. Plus considering I bought Push and the Suite this year it's not the best time to switch. It frustrates me a bit because I'm trying to set up Live for smaller live sound applications, and it's almost there, but the return track limit is a deal breaker in most cases. I've been looking for a max device that will mimic the effect by sending to a track through an encoder, but I don't think anyone has made anything like that. Not sure if it's possible or not.

Though you theoretically could do this in bitwig by routing your fx channel to an audio track.
