Thanks. That tip served me well this weekend as I was FOH for a three-day
music festival, and recording each of the 28-30 acts (I lost count after a
I saved a template with a track defined for every input I had available
from the board, then after the stage was set, I could hide the tracks I
wasn't using for that act, and I could then activate all the tracks and
start the recording quickly.
...but I quickly discovered that hiding the track doesn't help. The
shft-ctrl-click enabled recording for all defined tracks, whether hidden
or not. So when I was most in a time crunch, I used the mass enable to
get the recording started, then during the second song when I was sure the
board was reasonably stable and the performers happy with their monitors,
so I could divert my attention, I stopped recording on all the unnecessary
tracks to save space on the drive.
