Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Close A quick tip on the basics of VCA faders in Pro Tools – use these to control the volume of multiple tracks at once, and still retain the ability to adjust each track’s fader individually! An awesome feature for post sound.


Adam Slawson says:

Why would you want to use this over sending several tracks to an Aux Bus Fader? The audio would be the same bringing the audio down on the Bus Fader, and then you can add Bus inserts to the bus to build the blended sound out more. Please educate me!

Mena Maged says:

Thank you for sharing this. I have a question why i would use a VCA track only to adjust the volume while i can do the same with an AUX track and group it with the tracks that i want to group them so when i move the fader of the AUX they also will follow it ? Thank you.

For some reason my vca has an output meter and theres audio coming out of it increasing the overall volume of everything in the group… how do I create a vca that doesnt have audio running through it?
