User Guide Index


Track groups have been introduced in Revoice Pro 3.1 as a way of controlling multiple tracks at a time when you perform actions such as mute and solo.

A track can be in any group and in more than one group at a time. Any "groupable" action performed on one track of the group will affect the others that it is grouped with.

Managing groups

Select the top menu item Tracks > Manage Groups.

A window similar to that below will appear:



Creating a new group

Press New Group to create a new group, which will then be listed in the Groups window to the right.


Adding tracks to groups

Highlight the group name in the Groups window top right. Highlight tracks in the list on the left by clicking them (shift or command/ctrl click to add to the selection), and press Add >> to put them in the group selected. In the example below, the first two tracks from the track list shown above have been added to the single group created, leaving 3, 4 and 5 out of it. You can choose a colour to identify the group from the Group Colour drop down.



Removing tracks from groups

Tracks can be removed from a group by selecting the group name in the Groups window top right, highlighting the tracks concerned in the Group Members list below it, and clicking <<Remove.


Deleting groups

A group can be deleted by highlighting it in the Groups list and pressing Delete Group.


Naming groups

You can name a group by double clicking on its name in the Groups list and typing. (This can also be done by typing in the group name above the group controls on the main Revoice Pro window, shown below.)


Group controls

GroupControlsThe group controls are shown at the rightmost side of the main Revoice Pro window. You can show or hide this column by pressing the rightmost arrow button at the top of the column.

You will see four buttons for each group, A, V, M, S.

A = active (group is enabled)
V = visible (tracks in that group are made visible)
M = mute (tracks in that group are muted)
S = solo (tracks in that group are soloed)

When the button is green that function is "on". These are not duplicated by keys on your computer keyboard.

Pressing any of these group controls for a group will affect all the tracks in that group. Similarly, pressing M or S on the left-hand track controls of any track in an active group will affect all the tracks in the group.


Working with groups

Activating and viewing groups

When you activate a group by pressing A in that group's controls, the button lights up with the colour of the group (the colour is selected in the Manage Groups function described at the start of this section), and (as long as they are visible) the tracks in that group show a vertical bar of that colour down the left side of the Revoice Pro window. In this example, Group 1 is red and affects the first two tracks, while Group 2 is green and affects track 3.


If a track is in more than one group, the vertical bar on the left of the track controls will be split between the colours of the different groups to which it is assigned. Here Audio 3 is assigned to both red and green groups:


Tracks in a group can be made visible or invisible by pressing the V control.

ALT V is an exclusive visibility control, which makes only that group of tracks visible.


Control behaviour with tracks assigned to multiple groups

Because tracks can be assigned to more than one group, sometimes a function will affect tracks in multiple groups at the same time. If all the tracks in a group are affected by a function then the group control for that function will be affected too. So, for example, if group 2 contains all the tracks that are also in group 1, muting group 2 will also cause group 1's mute button to go red.
