VCC grouping feature
How do I use the grouping feature with the Virtual Console Collection ?
The VCC grouping feature allows adjusting the parameters of several VCC instances at the same time.
To activate the grouping feature on a VCC plugin instance
- Click on the Group switch at the bottom of the plugin
- Open the grouping panel by clicking on the bottom arrow if it's not already open
- Assign the current plugin instance to one of the 8 available groups by clicking on one of the green Assign buttons
- Edit the parameters of one of the groups by clicking on the red Edit buttons. This way, you can edit each group without modifying the current channel assigned group
- Open the Track list panel if it's not already open by clicking on the bottom arrow in the grouping panel
- You can rename the current track and the edited group in this panel. The list of the assigned tracks to the currently edited group is also displayed.
If the Group switch of the current plugin instance is activated, the plugin Console parameter is the same as the group one, the group Input value is added to the current channel Input value, and the group Drive value is added to the current channel Drive value. The resulting Input and Drive values of the current channel will be displayed on the final version.
The plugin Console selection knob is greyed out to show that the console is selected via the assigned group and is not the displayed one on the main plugin interface.
Here are some videos to help you out with the grouping feature in VCC. If you do not see a video for your specific DAW please let us know and we can make one and add to the list.
Is it also separate for mono and stereo (VCC Channel)? I'm experiencing that.. Just letting you guys know:)
Is there a way to group the Virtual mix bus channels (i.e. the drums bus, music bus, etc) into the master mix bus? or do you just use an un-grouped virtual mix bus channel as the master mix bus?
