Hi all!

- Send your individual tracks or bus tracks to NCAR track
- Select input channels which you want to use (See track explanation)

Routing Steps (IND - Individual);

- Put NCAR to Bus channel
- Send your individual tracks or bus tracks to NCAR track
- Select input channels which you want to use (See track explanation)
- Send NCAR's outputs to new or existing tracks
- Now, you are able to hear each channel's outputs from routed tracks

NCAR is only 64 Bit VST for MAC & WINDOWS.

No VST3 or AU because of their input & output limitations.


Also, here is NCARSE (Single Edition for VST, VST3, AU users for MAC & WINDOWS)

You will be able to download NCARSE with NCAR.

This is looking awesome; really looking #ffw to try this out. Any plans on adding #crosstalk in between the different channels? Great Work anyway & Glad to see the 'evolution' of your plugins. :tu: :phones:

VST3 and AU have more limitations than VST 2.4? Wow, seriously? What are those devs thinking? They're supposed to improve the formats, not to go backwards ¬_¬

Actually, i thought about crosstalk but i decided to not adding this. We always try to keep crosstalk low in analog world. In digital world, possible to remove crosstalk. So, i decided this...

AU has only 6 mono inputs (3 stereo) and VST3 acting like midi plugin in DAW if you try to use 16 channel input. Both have no problem with multi-out as you know but they can't handle multi-input...
Awesome! Thanks tunca :hug:
You're welcome!

Agree, as it is also a tiny step between 'gluing' Things together, or totally messing up the Signal. So the Hi End Consoles in the Analog World should be about 99.99% none - crosstalking; yet there is still the 0.01% of Magic in there. :phones:

Can someone explain what this adds to DAW summing, or using subgroups?
Isn’t it just the same daw function? What’s different from a math perspective? Digital summing = Digital summing no? Which leaves channel colorization, which has been done to death by Slate, Waves and others? NLS, VCC etc?

What’s different this time?

VST3 acting like midi plugin in DAW if you try to use 16 channel input.
sounds like a DAW bug to me. i'm pretty sure it would work fine in REAPER or any other DAW that isn't Cubase :P

Tested with Reaper, Ableton, Bitwig and Cubase. All acting same.

Even, DAWs are crashing after some minutes.

AU can handle only 3 stereo tracks for 5.1 mixing. With 7 or more, DAW is crashing which one use AU.

It's too bad for VST3 and AU users. I'm sorry about that...

i'll have to experiment with other plugins with 16 inputs and see how it goes so... maybe i'm missing something :)

Yeah I don't really understand what this is for. A mixer that I put in my DAW's mixer? I'd appreciate an explanation.

It's like using one 8 channel sidecar mixer (different color) with your main "big" console.

Possible to route your tracks into individual strips and sum all of them. Also, EQing...

I get the “virtual” story, but it seems there is no clear difference to me either, funneling sound through a GUI, it’s summing i/o leveling and EQ, all being basic daw functions.
