Control parameters can be linked across multiple paths in real time, while maintaining relative offsets.
To set up Path Linking go to the Channel View and tap Path Link to the right of the screen to open the Path Linking window.
Now select the paths to link by tapping them on the screen or using the SELECT buttons on the Fader Tiles. These paths are now in the link.Tip: Use Range Select to quickly select multiple paths. Hold down the SELECT button of the first path, then tap the SELECT button of the last path in the range. Now release both buttons. This can also be done across neighbouring Fader Tiles.
Once the paths have been added to the link, adjust a parameter on one path in the link and the other linked paths will update accordingly. These are relative changes.
There are also a series of multi-select options:
- All Paths - link all paths of the same type
- Called to Screen: Active Layer - link paths in the layer that is currently called to the screen
- Called to Screen: All Layers - link paths in all layers on the tile that is currently called to the screen
- All Tiles: Active Banks - link paths in all banks currently displayed on all Fader Tiles
- All Tiles: Active Layers - link paths in all layers currently active on all Fader Tiles
To activate these options, engage them at any time. For example, if there are two full input channels in the link, and All Paths is engaged, all of the full input channels will be added to the link.
Tapping Clear Selection will clear the current link. Engaging Suspend will temporarily deactivate the link, disengage to reactivate.
When all adjustments have been made to the linked paths, simply tap Path Link again to close the window and clear the link.
All path types are compatible with Path Linking including Matrix channels and VCAs.Please note: Paths can only be linked if they are of the same path type: Channels cannot be linked with Stems, fully processed Auxes cannot be linked with Dry Auxes etc. Please also note:
The lowest positioned path should be used to fade down parameters within path linking, and likewise the highest positioned path should be used to fade up. This is because when the maximum or minimum value is reached, the relative offset will be lost between that path and the others in the link.
