One thing that I found immediately is that you can't group tracks in it I believe? I mean just visually set some tracks as subtracks for another (like folders inside folders). Of course routing could also follow this, so that the topmost track could become a buss for contained tracks. By grouping tracks you could also minimize or hide the contained tracks completely if topmost track is minimized. Would it be hard to implement this?

I get that you have already implemented bus tracks and you can route audio to those. What if bus tracks could also act as group tracks so that when you grab a track and drop it on top of a bus track it becomes a subtrack for that bus? The output routing for that track could be automatically set for that bus? I believe this way you could use bus tracks in traditional mixer kind of way as you have implemented it now, but also as track groups that work as busses. If busses inside busses would be enabled this would create even more freedom for the user.

When working with bigger sessions that include several versions of parts you work on this would be helpful. You could just quickly hide the things you don't need and you would find your tracks easily inside the busses, if required.

Another useful feature would be to enable activating and deactivating tracks. This can also work together with what I described above. In Bitwig this is implemented so that you can activate or deactivate tracks and track groups and select with just one button if all deactivated tracks/groups are shown or hidden. This way it's really easy to have shown only the tracks that you actually work on. You don't have to delete tracks if you want to just set them aside in case you have to go back to them.

Would implementing any of this seem useful to you, or would it break any existing functionality?

Cheers!

Hi,

We have suggestions from other customers to add folder tracks, which is only a simple one to organize tracks. However, using bus tracks to group tracks may break something we already supported, such as side-chains and sends.

Thanks for the suggestion to activate and deactivate tracks. We will consider adding it.

Ok I see. Further suggestion: Would it break anything if group tracks and bus tracks would be separate concepts, but while group tracks would visually gather the included tracks, they would also act as audio processing "buses" (or group "main" channels, to differentiate it from bus concept) for the included channels. You could change this by selecting a different output for an included channel, but the default output for a channel inside a group would be the group main channel. You could easily make groups of channels that you assign sends from and effects to this way by just modifying the main group channel. The bus concept could be left alone as it is? If groups inside groups would be enabled, that would further enhance the flexibility (for example a drum group that has further groups inside it for percussion and the main drumset).  Or maybe you already thought of something like this?
