Show Page: Adjust Volume of Backing Tracks Between Songs

+13 votes
asked Feb 14, 2021 in Studio One 5 by freerhall (260 points)
I'm using the Show feature with separate MP3 files for backing tracks (drums, base, bvox).

I need to adjust volume of each track between songs.  For example, some songs have the drums too loud for the live show and other songs the drums are too quiet.  I also want to ensure that all of the backing tracks from song-to-song are at the same level.  I want to avoid having "song 1" be very loud and then "song 2" be very quiet.

I second this request! Not sure why this wasn't already a feature...

I second your request!

A workaround I've been using that works for my needs (5 tracks in a set). I set up a template with 5 players for each song (5x5=25 players); then color code each 5 player song; load the stems for each song in the color coded order of songs. Now I can set mix volume, eq, plugins, etc. for each song.

Not ideal and I'm still trying to figure out more work-arounds for the Show Page (I really want to use it!). Hope this and other issues will be addressed soon in a future update!
