Track Folders, like cubase sx.

Post by Randolf Reimann » Mon May 21, 2007 1:04 am

You know what I mean? Like when you have 16 vocal tracks and 27 backing vocal takes and 17 guitar tracks!!!!

sometimes ya just wanna fold all the gits down to 1 tiny folder instead of scrolling down for 2 minutes on ya little macBook screen.

I'm a cronic virgo and I'd like a bit more order in my projects, please.

bobtfb, yea, kinda. :)

He means a folder for the tracks. You could put all the million tracks into an "folder" that would appear as one track. When you click a button on it, it will unfold and show all the tracks in it, maybe with some tabbing in front so you can see they are within the folder. Then you can close the folder (=hide the tracks in it) with the same button when you wish.

The point of this is to be able to group tracks and hide them in big projects to get space to work and to tidy the project.

I vote for this soooo much..

Yeah, like posssu says. fold all your vocal tracks down to one slim track until you want to edit them.

There's probably a 5 page topic about this somewhere if I'm guessing correctly. Still, I agree on making this a big topic. I'm not going to post more in it though, so that it will look less spammy :P

No, if you searched on this you would find that it's probably easily in the top 10 most requested features going back a few years now :)

Patience -- I would be very surprised if this didn't make the cut for the next version ..
