oh, it definitely sucks!alexaaz wrote:Yes, that's true, but a bit restrictive no? So I can't put any tempo synced gates, LFOs or filters after my UAD stuff? I just bought the Vengeance Sidechain Compressor. It will sync to tempo, but if I put it after a bunch of UAD stuff - no good.
And to be honest, I'm finding this whole thing confusing… what about if I use the kick drum from another track as a sidechain input to Ableton's compressor, but after a bunch of UAD plugs? And what about UAD stuff that syncs to tempo?
Also, Live doesn't remove the latency compensation when a plugin is disabled, which means if I want to replay or add a new part I have to *remove* all the plugins that cause delay. In Logic, I can just enable Low Latency mode and get straight to it.
On top of that, when the plugins are disabled, Live actually offsets the midi by an even greater amount (2x) than when the plugins are enabled!
Maybe a workaround for this part of the problem is: put all effects on a separate track and route the soft synth there. When wanting to record live, route the audio out directly, avoiding the track with all the delaying plugins.
What's a workaround for the tempo synced effects? Freezing the track with the delaying plugins and then outputting that to another track which is where the tempo synced plugin is (e.g. tempo-synced sidechain compressor)? Would that work?
the kick sidechaining shouldn't be a problem in any scenario - as far as i understand.
i dont know the vengeance comp and have never heard of another comp that tempo-syncs, so no idea there.
personally i now bounce a lot more often.
but it's really only plugins that use the transport timing information which can behave weirdly, "ordinary" tempo-sync works fine even if a prior plugin introduces latency.
again, as far as i understand...
been planning to try out a few scenarios myself but never got around to do it - if it sounds good etc.
