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

Go To Send Track

This tool works by adding menu entries to the DSP lanes/ Mixer for navigating to and from the send tracks.

1. If you have a send device on a track, select it then right-click for menu. You should see an entry:
~ Go to Send

Click it and you will be taken to the send track the device is routed to.

2. On any send track that has a send device routed to it, right-click on the DSP lane and you should have a list of all the tracks with those sends. Choose the one you want and you will be taken to that track/ send device. The entries will look something like this:

Multi Volumes

Runs in the background and lets you control multiple track (pre&post) volumes and maintain their relative levels.

When it's enabled select tracks that you want to control in the pattern matrix and then adjust any mixer volume fader, all other selected tracks will also be adjusted by the same decibel value.

By default the tool is set to be operated manually and to only work on post fx volume faders.
Installing gives you two keyboard shortcuts, "Multi Volumes Enable" and "disable". Assign these to keys to manually enable/disable the tool.
