TRACK RIGHT-CLICK COMMANDS - SEND TRACK
• Insert Track
These commands add a new Audio, Instrument, Video, Send, SubMix, Output, or Vocoder track directly above the current track.
• Delete Track
Removes the current track.
Changes the color of the track.
Multiple tracks can also be linked together; this gangs up the volume, pan, mute, solo and send controls. It’s particularly useful if you have a group of similar tracks (like drums, or multiple backing vocals). You may have as many separate groups of tracks linked as you like. Linked tracks will display uniquely colored “chain” icons beneath the track name.
To link two or more tracks, select tracks as detailed in the previous section then choose from the following Link options:
Link Selected Tracks- Select two more tracks, then right-click Link>Link Selected Tracks
Unlink All- Unlink All disables linking for alltracks in the current Link group (one track within the group must currently be selected before unlinking).
Unlink- This disables linking for only the selected track in the current Link group. Use this to remove a single track from the Link group.
Note: Track linking is overridden for volume, pan, or send if automation locks are enabled for these parameters.
Opens the Effects List window for the track where effects can be added and edited. This is the same as clicking the track fx button (next to the Arm button).
• Show Effects On Tracks
Globally shows or hides insert effects next to the track list. Unless you're short on screen real estate (i.e., laptop), we recommend leaving this on.
• Show Regions Controls On Tracks- Globally shows or hides Track Regions bars for Master and SubMix tracks. (MC 10 Pro Studio only)
Tracks can be temporarily silenced by selecting Mute. The Mute button turns blue, and all clips on the track turn gray with diagonal lines.
Disables audio for all other tracks. The track Solo button will turn blue. Multiple tracks may be soloed simultaneously.
Set Exact Volume...
Opens a window where the track volume slider can be set precisely, either by slider control or by entering a numeric value.
Set Exact Pan...
Opens a window where the panning can be set precisely, either by slider control or by entering a numeric value.
Allows individual track heights to be adjusted to Small, Normal, Large, or Extra Large size.
Cycle Track Size
Moves through Small, Normal, Large, or Extra Large track heights. (This one makes more sense when track height is selected via the [CTRL] + ' and [CTRL] + [SHIFT] + ' key shortcuts).
Each track can have its own image beneath the track name for personalization as well as organization. Choose from Mixcraft’s included images or import your own.
To change the track image, double-click an existing track image or hover over the track image and click the pop-up button. You can also select Track>Properties>Choose Image… in the main window drop-down menus, or right-click on a track and select Properties>Choose Image...
The Choose A Track Image window opens:
To use an existing image, select one and click OK. To use a custom image, click Add My Own Image File..., navigate to the image to be added, select the desired image, and click Open. The image replaces the existing track image and is added to the list of thumbnail images.
JPG, BMP, PNG, and GIF formats are supported, and custom images are permanently added to the track image library for use in future projects.
• Duplicate- Creates a copy of the track and all of its clips. This is a time-saver if you want to add a second part using the same instrument, add a vocal double with the same plug-in setup, etc. Also useful if you’d like to try some wild edits and want to retain an unadulterated version.
• Select All Linked Tracks- If Link to other tracks is currently enabled for the track, this selects the current track and all other tracks currently linked.
