I seem to loose my way in this process all the time.
I have some old tapes, now transferred to audio and loaded into Cubase 9. I have 35 clips from this concert, that has been originally captured on Cassette tapes !!! So the quality is very different.
Now I have created a plug-in chain of FabFilter EQ2, Slate Virtual Tape Machine, and Ozone 7 on the channel that hold all the clips. On a certain point in one of the clips the audio is suddenly very damped, so I need to boost the top quite a lot. If I do this by automation, I can not move the clips around, and suddenly I think it’s very complicated. And what do I do if I need a noise reduction later in the process?
How do you manage that kind of jobs?
