Different effects per part. Can't figure out how to do it.

Post by n2design » Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:51 am

I have an audio track with a loop on a part, then the next part down I want to use a phaser effect, then the next one down use a chorus effect. It seems like any effects I add are present on every part.

Is there a way to create varied effects depending on what scene is being auditioned?

Sorta. Depending on the effect you can set clip automation to control the wet/dry mix to effectively bypass the effect for that particular clip, but device off/on doesn't appear to be automatable like it is in the arrangement view. Not sure why the automation options are different between the two views.

Disclaimer: I'm still running Live 7 on the machine I'm on right now, so things in 8 or 9 might be different. Try clip automation and see which options are available for the effects you're using.

yip that works pretty good i guess, thx!! be nice if they streamlined it and let you drop effects onto the parts independent of the device track.
