It would be great if you could make "add bus channel" to folder track command so we can do it with the keystroke or so that we can make macro for pack tracks to folder and then add new bus to it.

Again, you can do this if you add an Automation Track for your Bus Channels. I'd also recommend this video:

@ jackchicago

yes, I know that, but this is not available as key command, I want to have this as key command so that I can use it when making macro, a macro that does everything from this video with one click...this would be possible if there was a command that adds new bus to selected folder

= DEAR PRESONUS STAFF. PLEASE SUM UP SIMILAR POSTS IN ONE TOPIC = There are multiple similar pools. Please sum them up as this feature is dead forward and simple to implement.

Basically: With folder packing, make an option to create bus for this folder automatically.

In other DAW (Bitwig) = Folders are buses.
IN Studio One we have folders AND buses.

PLESASE:  Add functionality when creating a Folder from tracks, to create and LINK BUS to that FOLDER automatically.

so: When you packing tracks to a folder, please (have an option in settings to) create BUS for this folder automatically and link to that FOLDER.

This one is needed. Along with the Mono-Stereo function. So you can change a track type by a hotkey and use it in macros.

Tried to create a macro for this today and found out there is no command that exists for "add bus channel" for a packed folder. Bit clunky having to create a bus channel for the packed folder as when you pack audio into a folder almost always you want it to be a bus. I don't think I've ever not wanted the packed audio to not be in a bus.
Would be really simple to add this command in

Hey guys, 

This is the best macro for it:

It's made by this guy: Anubhav Ukil

And it works super smoothly!

Coming from Ableton I was craving for this so I feel your pain hahaha

Anyway hope this helps

Take care

you can achieve this by finding a macro that someone that has already created in the presonus cloud. here's how:

  • Click the Macro Toolbar icon in the Studio One Toolbar
  • Go into the Cloud Tab in the Studio One Browser and select PreSonus Exchange
  • Enter "Bus Folder Macro" into the Search Field (the one created by user: anubhavukil)
  • go to keyboard short  cuts and assign Bus Folder Macro to command key of your choice

THIS is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks for this macro. But I don't understand at all. I couldn't create this macro because the command Track|Add Bus for Folder Track doesn't appear in the macro section! At least to me or I can't seem to see it inside track options... really strange. I wonder how he managed to create it. Thanks anyways!
