I’m applying reverb to a VST instrument and I would like it to be clipped completely at a certain measure. How do I go about doing that? All help is appreciated.
Add it on a send and then automate mute the return channel
Automate the bypass
Render it and edit the audio
Thanks for the quick response. I assume you’re proposing three different approaches. My problem is that I don’t know how to go about automating a channel. Could you elaborate? Thanks!
Ahh, you’ve just asked Grim to write a small book explaining automation. Automation is a big topic. Your question is best answered by reading a description that is already written - the manual.
A) It will likely be a better written response (sorry Grim, in general you write just fine ).
B) It will be a more complete description.
C) It will include handy pictures.
D) It won’t use up a bunch of Grim’s time.
I used to be a software engineer. I’m used to reading and writing specs, manuals, proposals, etc. I have a film score due tomorrow. If I had the time to hunt for the info that can be explained in three sentences, I would not post to the forum. Perhaps I should post my own answer in a couple sentences after I find it so others can benefit…
Here’s how it’s done:
- Bring up MixConsole & locate channel to be automated
- Click W in the automation area (next to R)
- Playback at desired location and click or slide anything you desire to record automation
- Stop playback
Was this so hard?
Exactly. And you got your answer quicker too.
That is not the point. I got lucky to find the answer so quickly. It was also at the cost of my creative process. Thank you so much for your kind attitude…
