Basically I’m wanting to do what this guy is asking for https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=168575
i.e. A Vocal Track where reverb/delay comes in only when the person isn’t singing above a certain db, ala only on the vocal tails.
There are a few tutorials on youtube and other pages, but some seem to vary on what method they use, leading to my confusion
Is there a commonly accepted ‘most correct way’ of doing this? There must be a FAQ for this I assume.
Yes I have experimented and trailed some of the methods.
If so can you please link me to a post/tutorial that explains this method point by point.
----- Edit: I suppose my main beef with it is It doesnt work fully eg heres one method I usually use
-send slot #1: vocal reverb FX channel
-send slot #2: vocal reverb FX channel : compressor
vocal reverb FX channel
-inserts slot #1: Reverence
-inserts slot #2: compressor (sidechain activated)
Now this works somewhat, but not fully, It doesnt matter what I set the compressors threshhold to I will always hear some reverb through the track, sure its ducks with the vocals and gets louder when the vocals fade out, But I want a totally Dry sound when the vocals sound and the reverb sound only at the non vocal tails, But whatever I try I just can’t get it
