OKI've been advised that instead of using a reverb setting for each track, that it's better to set it up in a send and receive auxilliary buss for greater CPU effficency.
But how do I do this?
Thanks Pete, our messages crossed. You answered much of my questions already. I need to try this out and then come back.OKI've been advised that instead of using a reverb setting for each track, that it's better to set it up in a send and receive auxilliary buss for greater CPU effficency.
But how do I do this?
Create an aux, e.g. with input bus 1 output to Stereo 1-2 out and insert the reverb there.
Then on your tracks you create a send to bus 1.
You can have as many auxes as you like, I start off with two: bus 1 and bus 2
Send 1 Bus 1 for a smallish room
Send 2 bus 2 for a longer plate or hall
Each track has 2 sends, I find it works well to give everything a little bit of bus 1 to the room, then use bus 2 longer reverb to taste.
This makes it very easy and visual to see how much reverb on each track, the more send, the more reverb.
It depends very much on the music, so much depends on whether you are trying to make multitracked recording sound like a live recording, ie all in one space or whether you want to use different reverbs for effects.So I gather that one does not wants to send all to one bus but set up similar reverbs only and send them to different auxs with the same stereo output? Is this correct?
Not quite...As I understand it, and I haven't gotten too far into this, the dry setting gives you the amount of reflection that the room or hall walls return and the wet ones are the reverbs from the sound source. Since few or none of the resets seem to take off the dry to any extent, I assume there is a reason for this or I'm still misunderstanding The dry settings. More later.
I see that you are using the first Send on each channel to send to Bus 2 who brings their sounds to Aux 2 where is instantiated a SpaceDesigner.This shows my mixer for the piece I have now finished:
It will go online on or before October 1st as I understand it, and I'll add the link when it becomes available.
Aux 1 has the medium hall preset and 2 is largely based on the little room one.
Aux 1 and 2 are already in use and Logic creates a new Aux track (numerically incremented) when using the "+" button at the left of the mixer...... it insists on an aux 3 as I don't recall setting that up.
You are using 20 instances of the VSL player plugin, 2 SpaceDesigner plugin instances and a ChannelEQ instance, which is overwhelming your CPU, I reasonably assume. Check your CPU readout on the Logic Transport bar...The samples are vsl which reside on a separate drive. I also don't understand why I'm forced to restart after a time as Logic freezes. Not enough memory for the Vienna instruments?
