Too help preserve some CPU cycles. Mutes all instrument columns and bypasses all fx.
-Discover CPU hogging tracks.
-Doing a manual render and ‘freeze’ of a high CPU track.
-Preserving experimental/ sound design tracks for later and free up the CPU
Plus: Bypass Hydra Function in the instrument DSP menu.
True Track Bypass
- Toggle Button for each track: mutes all note columns and bypasses fx on track
Muted instrument tracks = Red
Muted group/send/master = Orange
- Track selection buttons on left.
Tracks aren’t fully muted and sends and groups will still allow sound to pass. It’s just all devices and notes will be bypassed.
If you have a device that you don’t want switched back on when using the tool, put it in a doofer and it will keep its bypassed state - For warning, tracks with any devices already off are marked with a [*]
v0.59 In first post
-After running the Hydra menu, the new/ modified chain will be selected along with the BP Hydra device.
-Status message added too
If No ‘BP Hydra’ but other bypass hydras are present then all hydras cleared before re-setup - previously could end up with leftovers on re-run
Now if a ‘BP Hydra’ device is present, it will not be overwritten by re-running the menu and should retain it’s macro if already set.
If the ‘Hydra Bypass’ chain has been dragged to a new position, the tool will search for it when re-running rather than adding a second hydra chain.
fixed a bug that was present in 0.54 (hydra menu) where it was always checking instrument 1 and not the selected instrument:
Bypass Hydra Menu added
-Track select buttons are now a lighter shade of grey for Group tracks
-A warning [*] is shown next to any un-bypassed tracks that already have some bypassed devices on them. This is to note that they will be switched on again after activating the track again with the tool. They can be put into doofers if wanted to be kept in a bypassed state though
0.51 quick update:
-when non-inst tracks have no DSPs to bypass, a status is shown and the button will not default to orange
-made buttons a bit wider and stopped track names overrunning and making buttons bigger
