How to Lock Input and Mix Values on Preset Load

Jun 24, 2024

Learn how to lock Input and Mix values when loading a preset and retain the same values when browsing presets.

Certain Waves plugins have dedicated controls that lock the Input and/or Mix (wet/dry) controls when a new preset is loaded, for example in CLA Epic:

Certain Waves plugins have dedicated controls that lock the Input and/or Mix (wet/dry) controls when a new preset is loaded

This allows you to retain those values when you are browsing between different presets and gives you a better representation of how the plugin affects your signal.

In plugins that do not feature dedicated value locks, use the Lock Input or Lock Mix on Preset Load features in the hamburger menu on the top right corner of the plugin window to keep the current values of the Input or Mix parameters (or both) when you load a preset:

Ignore Input or Ignore Mix on Preset Load

If the Input or Mix menu item is not visible on the menu, then either the plugin is locally locking the Input value, the Mix value, or the plugin does not contain the relevant controls.

This preference does not affect other settings saved in a session.
