Live 10: So can you label the sends yet?

Post by rtroost » Sat Nov 18, 2017 2:29 am

So I see from various posts (I am not ready to beta yet) that we will now be able to label ins and out. Excellent!

Have we been given the ability to label sends so we dont have to remember where sends A B C D E F G go?

Answers or insights much appreciated.

No, but why is it even an issue? When you name the return track, it always has the A, B, C... letter first, so it's pretty easy to see where things are being sent. Also, how would you fit full return names under those knobs?

Actually often you have the return channels hidden. Then you are left with A, B, C each time...

@rtroost:
Don't know if you recognized it as it does not jump right to the eye:
If you hover over the send knobs the full name is shown in the status line at the bottom.
Better than nothing...

Thanks @coupe70. Bummer.

@antic604 places that you can’t see the return tacks include:
- the live mixer when u have a ton of audio tracks for summing busses
- push in sends view

This would be nice even if I also appreciate the accidents that this causes.

I'd rather have smaller send knobs with a label than large knobs and no label. When you have 2-4 sends it's not a big problem but it's very hard to remember what's what when you've got 10 sends.

Can you edit the info text for these?

You can change the name of the FX channel which is displayed in the status bar at the bottom when the mouse pointer hovers the send knob, so your eyes are constantly jumping between the knobs and the status bar, usually many times till you find the one you want. A label next to the know is the most efficient solution.
