I am recording 8 tracks simultaneously with a Line 6 UX8.
During post recording mixing how do you boost the volume of 1 track and get the file to remember it? i.e. during playback can you adjust the volume in the mixer but have the action recorded automatically?
Thanks for the reply

On the mixer screen is a record option to 'record mixer moves'.

Another way is to insert Control Change events on the track. CC 11 should adjust the volume from 0 - 127

If your system is up to it you can also use Volume Nodes for this same result (see image below)
This way you can drag the volume setting up/down on a linear view in the Tracks window (instead of using the mixer).
This doesn't move the mixer slider, but causes the same effect audibly.
Use whichever way works for you, but I suggest deciding on one over the other.

The two methods can be mixed/matched together, but once you do one you need to remember it will affect the other!
Having the slider go up/down abruptly while the Nodes are on a slope up (for example) will affect the results of the slider moves. Un-needed complexity and sometimes aggravation.

Since your question original question mentioned recording mixer moves, this may be your preferred method.

Also be aware on some systems Nodes can seem 'quirky'.
I think it depends on your drivers, system resources and number of events.
I had quirky issues when it was first introduced, but not in the last few years, your mileage may vary.

Using either the Mixer method or Nodes, know that how fast it responds depends on your driver selection.
Good ASIO drivers seem almost instant .. while MME will have a lag.

one mistake i made with nodes was pointed out to me by rharv. you can't just add a node or the volume will change gradually from the previous node. i wanted to mute a track for just two bars so entered a zero node and the program faded the volume from its previous set level over about thirty bars and introduced loads of cc7 changes in the event list.

the trick is to enter before and after nodes. a first node for the volume set most recently and then the new volume a little later. often you can see a 'gap' in the audio and if you zoom in you can place the 'after' node very close so you get an instant change - unless of course you want a gradual one. to get a fader move up do the reverse.

This seems like it might be suited for the Tips forum. <grin>
Clean it up just a bit to include just the tip and I bet it'll feel right at home there.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
