Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

Hi folks,
I'm working on a project for a production course and part of my assignment is to set up multiple return tracks with different synced delays on each return track, and then route them all to a single bus for applying sidechain compression to the entire effects mix with a single compressor.
The problem I'm having is that when I route the audio from my return tracks into another audio track the delays are no longer synced, that is to say there is an extra bit of delay, for instance a 1/4 note delay no longer repeats on the 1/4 notes, it's a little bit late and it sounds out of sync. As far as i can tell it is not possible to group return tracks into a single bus in Ableton for applying an effect on the entire effects return submix.
In the end I just had to add the same compressor to each return track to get the result I wanted.
Am I missing something obvious here?

Hi dugdigit,

Just for curiosity, have you try to create a new return track, set it to "pre" mode, activate it on all the "delay" return track, send 100% of the signal to it, and put the fader's "delay" return track to -inf... and hear if you still have this extra bit of delay ?
