Bind a button to input gain within a rack?

I have a global out rack which takes all my VST output from each song. This rack EQs the audio and then sends it to the Main Speakers.

My audio interface also has 2 analogue Line INs. I connect the audio output from the keyboard into these Line Ins.

I would like to be able to bind a button on my control surface to Enable/Disable the route.
I would also like to be able to bind a rotary encoder to the Input Gain.

I can enable/disable the route manually, and control the slider manually, but when I right click and say create binding, nothing happens.

How can I best achieve this?


Should I do it in the background rack?

I think first you should check your MIDI Input ports (control Surface)
…if there is a Problem with your Midi Connection

normaly it should work

Ah, let me explain better.

If I right click on the rack input gain (green arrow in the screenshot) and “create binding”, then a popup appears and I can bind successfully.

When I right click on the route enabled, or the route gain (red arrows) and click “create binding” then no popup appears, and so I can’t bind.

ok …i think this Option is not available …you only can bind Input or Output gain of the Rack

but maybe you can built one Rack for each in/out

some Racks in one Rack if there is no other way

Juergen, thanks - that worked fine. I have created 2 embedded racks, one for the VSTs, and one for the Analogue Line In. I can bind buttons to the “Enabled/Suspended” setting on each rack, and my rotary control to the rack gain.

The routing within each rack simply sends the rack input straight to the rack output.

Problem solved.

See this article for creating bindings to routes…

There’s a trick to it - you first need to give the route a name before it’ll show up in the bindings panel (or work with right click Create Binding - I need to fix that).
