    Just found a way faster method for initial gain staging before mixing in Reaper. I wanted to gain stage the Little Empire "Stronger" track which came as 155 stems which would take a long time by the previous method above.

    New Method :
    1. Select and expand all tracks for a given gain reduction e.g. -18 db or -15 db. Use the shift key and left click to select a range of stems/tracks and use the "+" button bottom right of the window to expand all the tracks.
    2. Move the cursor to the top edge of any track and wait until you get a little double arrow pointing up and down.
    3. Click and drag downwards until you get the target DB reduction.

    This takes seconds to do the entire song and I don't know why I didn't do this before DOH!!
