    Any way to un-gang multiple tracks at once?

    Hey everybody,

    Is there a way to un-gang multiple audio tracks in the mixer all at once instead of having to click each individual track on and off? I feel like I do that motion so often and waste time with a bunch of extra clicks, especially if I happen to miss the gang button.  It's a tiny detail but in a pinch, it eats up time.

    Thanks!
    Mike

    BUMP. Wondering the same thing.

    Agreed. This is a function that should be incorporated into the audio mixer, given that an ALT modifier already exists to enable/disable solo and mute functions simultaneously across all active audio tracks. So ALT clicking the gang button for active tracks would be a logical extension.

    Totally agree, Larry. Will post in the feature request thread.

    My thoughts exactly...the ALT modifier is very useful in speeding up the process for me, particularly with enabling/disabling the waveform displays.  Ganging is the only click-heavy function that still bogs me down.  Let's do this, Larry!

    Would be nice to have this option available in the command pallete too.

    Bumping.

    Pleeease Avid?? Just add the alt-click command to audio gang. It's so slow doing it cick by click!

    Avid, put some attention on user experience. The MC interface is inconsistent (I'm currerntly on 8.3). The same functionality is elsewhere in this dinosaur of a UI. Alt-click, to toggle on/off several switches at once. It's not a cutting edge idea, it's been around for ages. Invest some effort into making the UI behave consistently -- it would make my 10-12 hours a day cutting (and working around MC's many idiosyncrasies) a far less frustrating experience.

    Re: Any way to un-gang multiple tracks at once?

    Does anyone know if this function has been added?

    Such a simple thing to add and funny that Avid hasn't yet thought about it themselves

    BUMP!

    Marianna - any idea if something like this is being considered?
