    Automatically Adding Tracks

    I'm working in a project with 2 audio tracks.  I have some clips that display 8 tracks of audio in the source monitor, but 6 of those tracks are blank.  If I forget to deselect the blank tracks, MC automatically adds 6 additional audio tracks, which I then have to delete.   Is there a setting to prevent MC from automatically adding tracks during an edit?

    You'll find it there: "Compser Settings/Edit tab/Auto Create New Tracks. Untick the box and enjoy.

    Disregard my question, I found the setting under Composer Settings --> Edit  --> Auto Create New Tracks

    But I have a related question.   If I only want to see 2 audio tracks on the source side (since the rest are empty tracks) is there a setting to determine how many tracks displayed?

    You can unlink the clips, modify them removing the unwanted audio tracks, relink; or You can subclip with only V1-A1-A2 active.
