Automating mixer per pattern.

Is it possible to automate the mixer per pattern. It would take a long time to adjust every drum hit thru the whole song.

No, you can't. The mixer is only working with the signals from the machines in song mode. I'm not sure why you need to adjust drum hits through a whole song. Why not adjust them within the patterns, within the Beatbox? What is it you want to adjust?

I would like to change the amount of reverb on a specific hit and add delay on another. I guess I should not be using the main reverb and delay for that. Can I automate the effects per pattern?

Nope, only what is on the "patch" view of the synth can be autoamted.

The problem is, the song and pattern sequencers are different "components" in Caustic so the automation keys for patterns are IN the pattern sequencer and the automation keys for a song is IN the song sequencer.

So Rej would have to reconcile these two lists for it to happen, which can't because a pattern loops, it would probably need a total rewrite or just get rid of patterns all together.

Yes, the master, mixer and effects do not work together with the patterns of the synths; they must be automated in "Song" mode.

If you want to place effects on certain drums (e.g. snare or crash) you can change the sample in the WAV editor. There is a functionality to apply an insert effect on a sample (and save). Of couse this is merely static, maybe you need free beatbox slots to maintain some variations of the sample.

Or you could use a modular with machine input for FX send (see attachment), if you have enough space in your rack.
