Default Folder Spill Part A

[FOLDER SPILL]

One of the banner new features in S4/S6 20.11 is Folder Spill. In exactly the same manner as with VCA Masters, the contents of a Basic or Routing Folder can now be spilled onto the desk, either in place or into user defined Spill Zones. Routing Folders provide an organizational structure for the elements contained within, but also provide the functionality of an Aux Input track which allows you to compress, filter or generally process all of the members of that particular folder at the same time.



When the size and complexity of the project starts to swell, that is precisely when folders become invaluable. The example post session we are working with includes a main SFX Routing Folder. Nested under that routing folder, in additional routing folders, are A FX, B FX, C FX, D FX, E FX, and F FX. Obviously inside of each of those subfolders are the individual units - audio tracks which are all color coded. Just like with nested VCA Masters, I can use Auto-Spill to dive down into nested folders then use the Menu switch to return back up the tree. Once you find the element you need - simply Attention it - and now the dedicated Dyn, EQ, Pan and Master Module sections are illuminated to focus on that particular element.

Default Folder Spill Part B

[WORKING WITH FOLDERS]

Let's dig back into Folder Management, Spilling and general workflow using EUCON 20.11 on the S4/S6. Folders can be accessed, opened or closed, and spilled - either from a standard Banking view, from Track Layouts or by taking advantage of Track Type views - especially within Spill Zones.

Use Attention + (Input) to Open or Close a folder from the channel strip.

Use Menu + Zone L or Zone R to place the folder members into a specific Spill Zone.

Under Settings > User > Automatic Spill of Attentioned Folder can be set to place the members of a Basic or Routing folder into the predefined Spill Zone of your choice when the Attention button is pressed. You can choose the same or different Spill Zone locations for both VCA Masters and Folders. Experiment and see what works best for your workflow.

Enable Synchronize Folder State With Spill under Settings > User to have Pro Tools Mix and Edit Window views follow the state of folders being opened or closed when triggered from the surface.

Use the dedicated Folder Tracks Soft Keys accessed from the Extras page on the Automation Module to perform global folder operations such as Opening or Closing of all Siblings.

Use Basic folders to simply provide an organizational structure for a group of elements. Use Routing folders to provide organization as well as the ability to Attention the folder and access processing functions such as EQ, Dyn, Sends, etc for that group of contained members.
