I have become a big fan of ST3. I have had a couple of gigs already using ST3 for backtracks - in combination with lyrics it works fantastic 🙂
I use multitracks, and feed each track to different channels on my mixer for soundguy to fine adjust balance.
My wish is to be able to mark a stereo track as "dual mono" - and be able to adjust both left and right of the individual stereo file (in my case mp3) instead of having a volume and a PAN.
Here's my reason:
In a very simple setup I have
- click-track - left channel is click only for count-in (and long guitar intros before drummer joins etc). Right is full click
- Bass/Guitar track. Left is BASS and right channel is GUITAR.
- Drums. Full stereo image.
If for some reason the soundguy finds that the guitar is ALWAYS to loud on a particular song, it would be nice to adjust the level in ST3. But since guitar is right-channel in a Bass/Guitar stereo track, this must be done with the PAN control, which makes it difficult to control with confidence. (Also, if Pan-law also affects the bass-side, it is quite difficult to get a good result).
Having seperate volume control for BOTH left AND right channel would make such adjust very easy. This is what i mean by "Dual mono".
As an add-on: If the audio routing would allow to recognize that a track is "dual mono", it would be nice to route left and right side independently. This would make a fantastic product even more convincing.
Tx for a great product
