Add a Balance Fader to the Splitter (wet/dry mix)

asked Apr 24, 2018 in Mixing by wonder6oy (2,870 points)

I've seen some requests for a "wet/dry" mix knob for plugins in the feature requests, but I wanted to present an option that might be a more logical addition to the Splitter tool already implemented in S1.

Would it be possible to add a simple "Balance" control to the split channels?  It would serve as an ideal "wet/dry" mix adjustment utility as well as other functions - ESPECIALLY if it could be automated!  In addition to parallel processing, you could also automate it to temporarily fade into complex FX chains that would be difficult to automate otherwise.  Not to mention other uses as well.

Here's a mockup of the idea...

Nailed it, without being able to automate the splitter faders you have to go back to making loads of sends which from watching the Persons videos this was to help elevate. I love the splitter but just need to be able to automate the levels.

This is important as well. Naming splitter is really important.

I voted this up. The mixer would be super useful, but more importantly, please let us automate it! This would make actually really useful for fading in effects/VSTs that don't have an inbuilt mix knob (or fading out).

An absolute must. The most referred to use for the splitter is adding parallel paths for compression for example. But that is very tedious to do with the splitter. I'm not using this feature at all because of the lack of a mix knob/wet/dry

I was about to write a request about the Dry/Wet in the 2 channel mode for making parallel process just easier and quicker.

Please, presonus make it happen! :)

Also, I wish that one day we could also automate those parameters available in the splitter!
