Mix Balancer

Description


What it`s for:

This tool is to help you achieve a balanced mix more quickly. It features 4 Gain-Nudge Buttons, which apply to the tracks post-faders. There are two modes of action:

INVERSE mode:
The Gain Nudge buttons effect the current track post-faders and all other tracks post-faders will be moved in the opposite direction. Similar to a Tilt EQ.

CURRENT mode:
The Gain Nudge buttons effect the current track post-faders only.

Controls

Top:

Pressing the INVERSE button changes the mode to CURRENT. In current mode the main large buttons will only effect the current track.

Automatic Headroom Control (when in INVERSE mode), is enabled with the [A] button next to the Inverse button. When the mode is enabled the button turns orange. It means that the tool will keep the maximum fader automatically at around 0dB so you don’t have to keep making headroom adjustments via the ‘All Faders’ buttons. This feature only reduces volume, not increases so that you dont get any unexpected/unwanted volume boosts

Middle:

There is a value readout for the current tracks dB level on the top right of the main Gain Buttons. Below the Gain Buttons there is a checkbox labelled ‘Fine’ which halves the values for each of the gain buttons, so you can make even smaller adjustments.

Bottom:

Beneath that are 2 ‘All Faders’ buttons [+] [-] that will adjust all instrument tracks in 1dB increments up and down; basically a macro for all your mixer instrument-track faders, so you can boost/ reduce all tracks at once.

The Headroom textbox shows you the current value of the highest fader/faders in the mixer and when you get close to maximum (+3dB) the minus button on the left will change colour first to yellow and then red to prompt you to press it to reduce all the faders at once. This ensures you retain your relative balances and gives you some headroom back.

Press the [G] button to go to the first track that has the maximum fader position. This will be the same as the headroom readout. When that track is selected the [G] button turns green as confirmation.

The View button toggles between the pattern editor and mixer view.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: The tool works on instrument tracks and does not effect master/send tracks, leaving you to adjust these manually if needed. When you use the tool on a group track it will effect the group post fader but not the faders of the grouped track. Otherwise group tracks will not be effected either. The main target for the tool is instrument tracks.
