Routing Tracks to an Assignable Effects Chain
Routing tracks to an assignable effects chain allows you to assign multiple tracks to a plug-in chain.
In order to route tracks to an assignable effects chain, you must first add an assignable effects chain to your project.
Click the label on the multipurpose slider label and choose the desired assignable effects chain from the submenu. The label changes to reflect the name of the assignable effects.
If you can’t see the multipurpose slider, drag the bottom edge of the track header to increase its height.
Drag the fader to adjust the level of the track sent to the assignable effects chain.
If you set the Dry Out faders in your effects chain to -inf, you can adjust the wet/dry balance using the Volume and FX settings on the multipurpose slider: Volume will adjust the dry signal and FX will control the effect signals.
You can also use the Sends control region in the Mixing console window to configure bus sends. For more information, please see Audio Track Channel Strips.
FX sends are post-volume by default. To change to pre-volume, right-click the fader handle and choose Pre Volume from the shortcut menu.
If you want to apply track panning (including pan position and panning mode) to FX sends, right-click the FX fader and choose Link to Main Track Pan from the shortcut menu.
When Link to Main Track Pan is not selected, the track sends a center-panned stereo signal using the track’s current panning mode.
Select the Use legacy track send gain check box on the Audio page of the Preferences dialog if you want to configure audio track sends to behave as they did in ACID 6.0 and earlier. When the check box is selected, you can open projects created with earlier versions of ACID and be assured they will sound the same as they did in earlier versions of ACID.
