Cubase Elements 6, Win 7
I have a vocal recording of a narration. This is a stand alone, mono recording. There are a few high/low points within the track, so I need to compress it and get everything within the same dynamic threshold. This was recorded without any FX items enabled, so I’m doing the compression post recording.
I have the FX Channel enabled and I have the Compressor selected. When I listen to the track with the compressor in place, I like what I hear. My problem… I can’t figure out how to apply the compressor to the saved file.
The Process items, like Noise Gate, Gain, Normalize, etc., all have a ‘Process’ button. Highlight the area you want to update, click Preview to confirm, then Process to apply it. Works great. I can’t figure out how to do that with the FX Channels though. I can preview it, but I can’t apply it.
What am I missing?
