I decided I would try to mix a track in ardour rather than renoise and it seems that it is not very easy to do. I have drums grouped with some fx on so I wanted to export the individual drum tracks and the grouped track and do phase cancellation to give me just the fx but this didn't work. I found that the individual tracks were playing early and the group was playing at the right time.
So what's the solution for this? I know I can turn off PDC and export the individual tracks but I only noticed this because they are drums and easy to see the transients. Is there a rule when I would to do this? Is this even the correct or best way to solve this? Seems really messy to me.
I understand that PDC would do this for playback but it can't be right that when exporting all the tracks as separate files that PDC's work should cause this. I
I've attached a simple example but it's not necessary, it's quite clear what is happening.
