|Platform||PC / Linux||OS||Linux Mint||OS Version||18 KDE5 64-bit|
|Summary||0007254: "Add new subgroup bus" is not working|
|Description||The feature to add a track group submix bus is a very nice feature and saves a lot of time, but unfortunately, it harqdly ever works for me.|
Usually when I use that option nothing happens. In the past version of Ardour I think it even caused me some crashes.
Currently I'm just unable to use it.
I create a track group, I select the "Add new subgroup bus" from the context menu and nothing happens.
Can anybody confirm this behavior?
|Additional Information||I'm running official stable 5.6 from the main Ardour downloads.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
it works just fine.
e.g. 38seconds into https://vimeo.com/191024580
or https://youtu.be/4idMZTxTaY8?t=12m31s (official 5.6 build)
Can you provide more information and a recipe? Are there MIDI tracks in the group or audio-tracks with different number of outputs in the same group?
In both cases an error message would be displayed (Window > Log) and the error button start blinking red.
Ardour 5.6 64bit (Gentoo)
Works for me when I:
- Create a new session
- Create 4 mono tracks
- Create a new group from tracks 1 and 2 by dragging in the edit window on the left side of the track headers.
- Click with left mouse button on group indicator on the left side of track headers, select Add New Subgroup Bus.
Result: A new stereo bus is created and track outputs (in the group) are sent to the input of the Bus.
This was on a "clean" session maybe the problem appears only on more complicated sessions ? Might be connected on the usage of another feature ?
||The session I experienced this in had 4 MIDI tracks that I grouped and wanted to create a subgroup bus for. All had ZynAddSubFX instrument plugin and fed stereo audio signals to Master bus.|
so you should have received a
[WARNING]: You cannot subgroup MIDI tracks at this time
Did you get that?
||It seems to me like two options to solve/improve this issue would be to either present a more obvious error dialog or perhaps preferrably only have menu entries in the group tabs context menu that are applicable.|
x42: I didn't see any warning.
I tried now and after opening the Log window - I found this:
"You cannot subgroup MIDI tracks at this time"
So - it'd be fantastic if I could :) Becasue I create submixes for synthesized drumkits all the time, so that'll save me a lot of time.
