April's TNT3 is amazing! Thank you for the great inspiration. Now I need to think for a while about what I learned and put thought into how I can apply to my workflow.
Any Environment tip is always welcome because there are still some objects I am not familiar with.
By the way, your channel strip's first send shows "reverb," not "Bus 1" which is very helpful. But I couldn't figure out how to do. Even I name my Aux tracks as I always do, mine still shows "Bus 1." Could you tell me how to do this? Thanks.
Thanks for your kind words! Of course I have to thank SteveH and Peter Schwartz again for inspiring me ;-)
Ah, yes... so my BUS 1 showed as Reverb because I renamed it's label:
- Open the Mixer and choose: Options > I/O Labels...
- Here you can give and short and long name to your inputs, outputs and reverbs.
(by the way these names are global - so will show up in ALL your projects unless you manually rename them again).
Hope that helps and glad you enjoyed the Mixer Snapshot Environment TNT3 :-)
btw, you can download an example of the finished snapshot environment on the TNT3 tutorial page here:

Wow! I can name each bus and other tracks? And these names are global?
This is fantastic!
I have a strict bus system. I always use bus 1-10 for various reverb settings (like close, middle, far orchestral verb and vocal verb, etc.) and other effects, 20-40 for stems, and 41- for parallel compression and so on, so labeling these buses permanently saves enormously.
Thank you for this great tips.
Yes! It's pretty cool, eh!
Although you can't name regular audio and software instrument tracks this way (which wouldn't make sense as it's better to create a template)...
I wish you could have different I/O Label sets. So you could switch to different names depending on the mixer/audio interface/template you're using - but still it's a good feature to have :)
Me too, Rounik! Now that I've been fooling around with ProTools a lot more, I certainly would love this functionality in Logic. PT's IO routing and labeling is so much better and more flexible, than Logic's. Still, could be worse, could be that Logic wouldn't let you rename anything at all.
