Hi,

 

First of all, the obligatory first post declaration :  Renoise is awesome. It's really satisfying to be able to compose music in a tracker while being able to use all the bells and whistles of modern DAWs.

 

That being said, I have a quick question. Is there a way to control multiple faders simultaneously while keeping their relative position? The hydra device is excellent but, as far as I know, cannot keep the relative position. The MultiVolume tool is also very handy but cannot be used on various devices (I'm thinking about gainers specifically). It would be neat, although it's far from being a deal breaker. Needless to say, I'm not much of programmer, so I don't think I'd be able to modify or write a tool for that purpose. Thank you!

Hi Frogzone, one option might be to use a tool I made called Device sergeant.

 

In order to keep relative volumes you would need to add an extra gainer on each track that you want to control.  Renaming them all to the same name i.e. `post gain 1` and controlling them via the tool.  This way any gain levels on your main faders are not touched and relative differences are maintained.  You can have as many named groups as you like with the tool and it also has a Map To Hydra button if you want to automate things

I also wrote a tool called Mix Balancer which has two All faders buttons (bottom left of GUI) that adds/ minuses 1dB from all your post  faders simultaneously (once the max/min boundaries are reached the relative values do get lost though).  This is probably less what you`re after though.

Great! I actually tried the device sergeant (great tool by the way) but I hadn't thought about adding a second fader...this effectively solves my problem. Thank you very much!!
