Hi, I have moved from reel to reel tape and a compressor to Cubase and NI Komplete. So far I have done lots of midi editing and created some midi parts which are reasonably well complete. Now I would like to set up a template for all my future midi tracks, which already have “outboard” loaded in before I start. I want most of the samples to sound fatter, so I’d like some “outboard” waiting to be switched on to get some quick fatter results.
Does anyone else do this and how do I set up a chain of gear (and in what order) as a template on each track?
I recently bought a Line6 Helix pedal for my guitar. It allows me to set up effects as “blocks” in a chain. I can see the chain shown visually on the screen. It’s easy to understand. Can I do this in Cubase / NI Kontakt? I would like all the sounds to be fatter and have some effects that I often use waiting there to be switched on.
I know that true professionals will set up each track’s “outboard” according to what they know works for whichever instrument is on that track - I will do that eventually once I know what I’m doing, but I don’t know all the outboard yet. At the moment, I just want to get started with a simple template and some easy to use tools.
Any suggestions - most welcome
