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 can do that in my DAW's mixer though?

Ok well I don't really get it but I'll say no more. I wish you well with it.

@Tunca

Is the internal processing -18dbfs or can his somehow be adjusted?

Yes, calibrated to -18dbfs. No adjusting.

Yes, absolutely you can, and your DAW will do it with full 64bit or 80bit precision and give you a perfectly summed signal.

As I understand it, this plugin does the summing but, like a hardware summing box, it's not 100% pristine and perfect. Each channel has a preamp before the eq, and then there is a summing amp which does "magic" when it sums the channels together at the end. Plus, you can drive each channel a little bit which is nice.
A bit fried in the higher freqs

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...
well at least in logic with Uhbik you can get 8 inputs. (7.1)

or use the same method as iZotope uses for their visual mixer

Thanks! This looks really cool. I've had a look at it in Ableton Live and ran into a couple of issues.

Input tracks 1+2 show up as "Track In" and seem to default to the first effects send track. If I try to route a track to 1+2 I get no audio. So the first pair of tracks can't be used.

The second issue is possibly an issue with Live 9, but only the first 4 input channels show up. All 8 show up in Live 10. Coupled with the tracks 1+2 issue this means I can only use 3 stereo channels in Live 9.

Hi,

In Live, to set channel 1-2, you should set your NCAR's track monitor option to "In".

Live 9 has no routing capabilities like Live 9.

Thanks.

Thanks. That fixed it!

I still had Monitor on the track with NCAR set to Auto. Switching it to In got audio flowing into Tracks 1+2.

I guess the way multiple channels of audio get routed in Live means that subsequent channels can still be heard even if Monitor is set to Auto. That's what was throwing me off.
