auto filter DRY/WET

i vote for a dry/wet knob on the almighty auto filter!
auto filter can be quite esoteric though, there are many times I wished it had oneSMonk wrote:-1.
Not every effect is meant to have dry/wet. Compressors, EQs and filters spring to mind. Obviously, one can imagine uses where one would want some kind of dry/wet function (parallel compression, etc), but overall the usage would be too limited to justify adding clutter by putting in another knob - especially since a workaround is available.
yes yes.. its clear. thanksrbmonosylabik wrote:You could build your own. Just place the autofilter inside a rack, add a 2nd empty chain, setup the chain selector to do a crossfade between both chains and map a macro to the Chain Selector, which will be your Dry/Wet control.
what about when it's already in a rack? you end up with a bunch of racks inside racks inside racks - it makes it so messy then you have to navigate extra racks, open that one to see the auto filter or leave it open so it takes screen space - TBH I'm getting pretty damn sick of racks all over the place because the GUI hasn't grown with thembensuthers wrote:-1
I agree. not everything needs a dry/wet. and it's so easy to set this up yourself with racks that if you REALLY need you can have it. right now.

you could have one and then use it for parallel compression ...maybe, not sure I'd do it like that, I think it'd be much more useful on auto-filterlongjohns wrote:?!?!koneko wrote:yes, but i cant see how is it more important to have one on a compressor
Mixing an unprocessed signal with a compressed copy of itself can give you a mixture of the punch of the compression while keeping a lot of dynamic range.longjohns wrote:?!?!koneko wrote:yes, but i cant see how is it more important to have one on a compressor
i know exactly what is it good for, i just said i find it at least as useful as a dry/wet on auto filterlongjohns wrote:?!?!koneko wrote:yes, but i cant see how is it more important to have one on a compressor
