Creating VCA group in Pyramix

Hello, guys

I have a question about the VCA group.
I try to create a VCA group to control the individual fader. But after I create the vca group, I don't know how to assign the individual channel to this vca group.
Can anyone help me out?

Thank you very much!

I'll assume that you're using Pyramix version 11, with the "new" (as of version 10) Mixer, rather than the "Legacy" mixer.

It's possible that a portion of your Mixer's display is collapsed, so that you cannot view the VCA Assignments. With your Mixer window open, look on its right edge where you'll see some little boxes with either a "+" or a "-" in them. These expand or collapse individual areas of the Mixer - from top to bottom: the various Bus and Aux assignments; Panning; Plug-in Effects; Gain (with the main Fader display); Mute; Mic Pre (shown even if you're not a Horus/Hapi owner); and Automation, IO and VCA - expand this one. With that area shown, you'll see a box for each VCA you've installed below each Input Strip's Fader and Mute/Solo buttons - click on the box to assign each of the Strips you wish controlled, to the VCA Master.

You can see an example of what this looks like on page 236 in the Manual, along with a full explanation of the Mixer display options which starts on page 210.
