DRUMTRACK8 MIXER PANEL

Overview

The Mixer panel lets you choose which drum kit to use for the current Pattern by scrolling through the list using the – and + symbols. The Mixer Panel is comprised of:
  • The Toolbar lets you choose the Drum Kit used for playback.
  • The Mixing Board lets you adjust each track’s overall volume and pan, as well as mute or solo the track during playback.

To open the Mixer Panel, select the Mixer button on the DrumTrack8 Toolbar.

Toolbar

See Toolbar, documented separately since it is a standard feature of each DrumTrack8 panel.

The current Drum Kit is listed in the toolbar display panel and can be changed by scrolling through the list with the – and + buttons.

New in V 2.1: Selecting the Drum Kit in the toolbar display panel opens the new Kit Selection Panel shown below.

This panel allows you to choose new Drum Kits without having to scroll through the entire list and is partcularly useful for switching kits during live sets. Touch and drag to scroll down the list of kits.

Mixing Board

Each track of the Drum Kit can have its Volume and Pan master settings defined in the Mixer Panel. Note that these values are multiplied with the Volume and Pan Pattern Modifiers. i.e. If the track’s master volume is set to 50%, and the Pattern Modifier Volume is set to 50%, the track will play at 25%.

The Drum Kit instrument is listed at the top of each track. Note: The corresponding track is laid out vertically in the Pattern Panel from top to bottom.

  • The top slider controls the track’s master Volume.
    Note: If you want volume variations in the track, use the Volume Mode Pattern Modifier in the Pattern Panel instead.
  • The small slider below controls the track’s left/right master Panning.
    Note: If you want panning variations in the track, use the Pan Mode Pattern Modifier in the Pattern Panel instead.
