Chapter 11. Mixing Audio > Hiding Mixer Channels

Hiding Mixer Channels

The mixer includes knobs, sliders, and buttons for every track in your composition and can quickly overwhelm the screen of your computer. A single project can easily contain dozens, or even hundreds, of tracks. Most users won't break that century mark, but even a project with 24 audio tracks, a few VST instruments, and some group channels for effects can get hard to manage in a reasonable amount of screen space.

Luckily, Cubase provides a number of ways for you to adjust your view—one channel at a time; by the panel, for an individual effect; or for the full mix—so that you can fine-tune your work. One of the simplest ways to manipulate your screen space is to use the buttons at the lower left of the Cubase mixer (Figure 11.2). These buttons let you hide entire groups of tracks. Clicking one of the channel types changes its icon to red and hides all channels of that type. Unselecting all of these buttons yields an empty mixer (Figure 11.3). The buttons in Figure 11.3 hide, from top to bottom, input, audio, group, ReWire, MIDI, VSTi, FX, and output channels.
