Default FX_Chain_Mixer_Stereo

EDIT: There is a link in post #4 for the finished effect.

With the new FX-Matrix I thought, damn, you could mix an entire VSTi drum set without create another track. So I wrote this little JS script. I thought this might go at the end after some EQ and Reverb. Don't know If I would ever really use it.

4 stereo channels, Level for each channel, with an option at the end to send all channels back to 1+2

Cool idea.

I would suggest that sending to other mixer channels is better, though. Simply because of the meters.

But JS has GUI support now, so it'd be easy to put a meter for each channel in this JS. If it had *that*, the only issue would be getting confused by 10-tracks' worth of fx on one track which all appear to be in serial, but are not.

As well as confusing, I *believe* (I may be wrong) the "10-tracks' worth of fx on one track" thing would have performance ramifications on multi-CPU machines.

Like I said, it's a cool idea, though

Ya, I thought 10 tracks worth of FX in one bin might be a bad thing, that's why I stopped at 4 stereo channels

I was wondering about the meters/channel, this is my first look at JS, and obvious to me is the need to study the documentation and options some more.

As for the Serial Appearance of the FX Chain, when I saw the FX matrix, one of my second thoughts was "Why isn't there an FX-Chain Matrix", Maybe in a panel that folds in and out of the FX-Chain Dialog Box. Or maybe some clever way to display the Pins in the FX List in the FX-Chain Dialog Box. The only way available now to not boggle the mind serial/parallel processing in the FX-chain would be to change the FX name in the bin to something like EQ1-2,EQ3, EQ4....

Realistically, I would agree about the confusion, and would use separate Sends/tracks in most cases

With LOSER's help on showing me a pan control, I finished this up.

Each channel has Mute/On/Solo, Volume, Pan
Master section to select Output: None/1+2/3+4/5+6/7+8/Original/All
Master Vol and Pan.

If anyone finds a use for it, and in doing so finds a mistake, let me know

Don

Edit: I don't know if it is a bug, but when I sent the mix to splX > than the number of channels, the meter peaked at 5000+

I updated with a num_ch check before splX=mix for sending All to All

EDIT: Found the culprit. Zero out the unused channel. Problem Solved. I am really finally done.

EDIT: 04-29-2008 2:10pm EST, updated with better volume control ranges.

What a learning curve you've had in doing so.
