    Adjust Audio faders whilst playing

    Hi !

     

    Just upgraded to Symphony running on top end i7 iMac and it appears that I still cannot adjust the audio levels on the audio mixer whilst plating a sequence - is this the case or am I doing something wrong !

    I will find it hard to believe that this much requested feature is still not possible in 2012 !

     

    Many thanks

    Do you have the Audio Mix tool set to do live mixing?

    Unfortunately, that is still how it works.

    Because they've been waiting for you to ask for it before implementing it.

    ;-)

    (I think the real answer is - it was old code and was tricky to implement. They've written new code for 64 bit which should make it easy to add such features but haven't earned enough to justify adding this in yet. Persuade more folks of the other benefits of MC and you may get this feature request. Or you may not.

    actually you can do it in 'automation gain' mode... but not when just playing a sequence. Unfortunately.

    Re: Adjust Audio faders whilst playing

    Hi

    I don't want automation gain functionality - I just want a touch/drag fader/and set new level ability (not automated gain) whilst timeline plays.

    Can't believe that Symphony (flagship 64 bit product) can't do this after all these years of people asking for it !

    Geeked

    Best wishes.

    I don't want to take I93 to go to work, but it's really the only way.  It doesn't stop me from complaining about it, but i generally accept it and move on.

    If you attach an Avid Artist Mix console, that in fact does allow you to change clip levels without stopping the system.

    Hi,

    when you move the faders in the Artist mix console, it takes twelve seconds for response.

    In my experience, that differs with the complexity of the sequence. I agree that it is not fast enough, though.

    Sorry for my incorrect answer.  I didn't realize that function no longer works, which sucks.

    Did it ever? Not that I know of. Long standing feature request.

    Re: Adjust Audio faders whilst playing

    I only adjust a simple audioclip during playing - not a sequence. The change takes 12 sec.

    regards

    I must be misunderstanding what the OP wants, because with the Audio Mixer tool set to Auto, I can hit the Record button on the tool, the sequence plays, I can make adjustments while it continues to play, and afterward there are keyframes on the audio tracks corresponding to the changes I made.

    I know you guys aren't stupid, so what am I missing? Smile

    [EDITED TO ADD]

    Ah, I just reread the thread.  If I understand correctly, the requested function would be to have automation gain functionality but without having to be in automation gain mode?  While playing back a sequence, at any point I want I could make an adjustment to the level of a clip and the sequence would continue to play?

    My question about this would be whether the change would apply to the entire clip (as it does if you change the level on a clip now), or whether the change should apply from the point the change was made and after that (as it does with automation gain mode)?

    Not arguing against, just curious how y'all see it working.
