Hopefully someone can help me figure out the best workflow for this situation. I have a vocal file and there is a plosive that caught the capsule while recording and I just want to EQ out the low end energy a bit just this section of audio and not for the whole file. Here is my process.
- Using the range tool select the phrase with the plosive (not just the plosive as that gets annoying to loop)
- Cycle loop this section
- With my EQ plugin (3rd party VST) find the bad frequencies for the plosive (in my case a cut with wide bell at 125hz worked well)
- Using the range tool select just the part of the file I want to be processed (the plosive)
- Right click the selection and choose “plugin” and load the same EQ VST.
Now here is where the frustration occurs. How do I now get the same setting from my insert EQ into this audio file processing EQ? At first I thought I could copy / paste my plugin settings using that disclosure triangle for all cubase insert plugins, but that triangle is missing when I load the EQ as a “processing plugin.” So now I’m stuck having to save my preset as a VST3 preset using the “cube,” which is a bit of a drag as I really dont want this to be a preset.
Anyway it made me wonder if this process is the best for this result? I know I could automate the plugin, but I’d rather not have to do this for just this single plosive. Any other advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
