Control One Setting Only in a Group - Pro Tools


Control One Setting Only in a Group:

This tip is useful if you want to change a setting on one track that is assigned to a group WITHOUT changing the same setting on the rest of the tracks assigned to the group.

For example, you have all the drums assigned to a group. The group has been selected and is active. You want to change a snare drum fader level without changing all the other drum levels and without deactivating the group.

  • Press and hold down the "Windows" key.
    The "Windows" key is called a "modifier" key in Pro Tools. It has the Microsoft logo on it.
  • Raise or lower the fader level of the snare drum track.

Holding down the Windows key allows you to change:

  • The level of one channel fader in a group.
  • The solo or mute status of one track in a group.

To suspend all groups:

  • Press and hold down the Ctrl and SHIFT then the letter g key on the keyboard. While holding down the Ctrl and SHIFT keys the g key can be used to toggle the suspend state from enabled to disabled.
