to be great at anything musical, you gotta close your eyes and open your ears like a blind person.
shoulda been the first key command ever made.
Yes but you don't juggle tracks with a control surface. And you don't select a track that is far away while you work on one (your other question in this forum). On a decent controller you have 8 faders and some knobs and your arrange tracks are layed out to fit your mixing needs. Control surfaces are organized in fader banks (groups of 8 faders each). Mix the first 8 tracks, switch to the next bank and you know that the bass is on track 5 there. Volume up, back to bank 1, pan the trumpet on track 7 and so on. You simply know what is where and as long as you deal with volume and pan, you work almost as fast as on a hardware desk. Plugins are another story though.aint that about the most used control on a surface? select track X, level up, pan left?
