I have some dialog I put on a futz track with a lot of distortion plugins. This, of course, if noisy, even if there is no dialog present. What’s the best way to deal with this?
I started automating, bypassing the inserts. Then I realized I couldn’t copy/paste automation to a different length with the range tool and I had to edit the automation points.
Then I thought I could just mute the track when there wasn’t dialog.
Then I thought I could possibly just use a gate. How do y’all deal with this?
