alternate takes

Post by steve64 » Sun Oct 22, 2017 5:33 pm

I have just discovered that each alternate take of same track can use a different instrument
while effects (plugin and its settings) are shared (fixed) across all takes.

- What's the reason of such approach?

- A drawback is that the instrument (first slot) of a take is ALWAYS reloaded when switching
among alternate takes. This causes a loading time that can be quite long when a third party VSTi is used.
I think that, at least when the same instrument is used in different alternate takes,
it should not be reloaded (or at least this should be left to user's decision).

p.s. I'm using the macOS version of MTStudio.

There can be both audio and MIDI files in the list. I think that's the reason.

I'll add the issue to the todo list.
