I would like to be able to send from an audio channel before the inserts. Is this possible? Ideally, I’d like to be able to put the sends anywhere I want in the chain, but I’m sure that this isn’t possible. Any suggestions, other than double the number of tracks in the project?
Yes of course. I have an audio track with SPAT as an insert, for placement. I want to send from the original audio to a reverb channel before it went through SPAT. Whatever way I do it, I end up with an extra track.
I don’t think other Daw’s do this either. I’ve never really thought about this really. I guess the problem would be if you’d want to send the signal pre- or post-fade. That’d be another decision that would have to be made in programming then…
We had that discussion before on the old forum, and a closer look brought up many (technical) problems. As far as I can remember, we couldn’t even make it work in theory.
That being said, technology has made big progress since then, so I guess nothing is impossible anymore …
If it’s a specific use, I use the reverb as an insert and automate the Dry/wet balance.
For a group of tracks, you can do this through a dedicated group track.
But things can get complicated pretty fast …
You want a signal to go to an aux channel before passing through inserts on that track?
Isn’t it possible to put the SPAT plugin on the last two inserts which are post-fader inserts and set the aux send to pre-fader? I cannot test it now but this is how I remember Nuendo sends works.
On Nuendo manual (p.205, p.213) is says that insert effect 7 & 8 are post fader (post EQ also) and that you could send a track signal pre-insert 7 & 8.
Hope I understood properly what you want to achive.
