It’s such a pain to set up a vocoder (I use vocodex for my vocoder fyi)
First, add a group channel track, and make sure to set it to quadro. Then, go to studio->audio connections, then find the group channel and add child bus-> stereo, then do the same for “stereo Ls Rs”. Then I have to add Vocodex onto that group channel. Then I have to add the carrier and route it to the appropriate child bus, then I have to add the modulator (if it doesn’t already exist) and route it to the appropriate child bus. Then I have to make sure Vocodex is receiving the data and can use it properly (this I don’t have to worry about any more because I changed the plugin default so that I don’t have to change anything, and if not for that I could use an FX chain preset)
It’s just that whenever I use a vocoder, it’s like I really have to plan the whole thing ahead of time. It’s not something I can just try conveniently try out or play with, and adding it COMPLETELY disrupts my workflow and creative juices.
Anyway, I’m not sure what the best way forward here is, but it would be SOOOO NICE if there was a faster way to set up a vocoder. I love using vocoders, but it’s always such a hassle. Does anyone agree? And does anyone have any brainstorms/ideas for how to make it faster?
