dummy clips for Return tracks?

Post by Bierman » Wed Jun 03, 2009 4:36 pm

Is it possible to create dummy clips on return tracks? Well actually I already think I know the answer, which is no.

I want to assign a key on my MIDI keyboard to 'force' a particular delay *time* setting... ie if I press C4 (or whatever key) on my keyboard, I'd like it to make the delay time of a plugin a specific value, such as 3/4 or 1/16, or whatever.

Currently the only thing I can do is map a note to delay time which effectively acts as a cycle, so it keeps cycling through different values... not what I'm looking for.

Any suggestions?

unfortunately that link doesnt seem to work... :(

and just to be clear, I'm talking about a Delay effect on a RETURN track, not on an 'audio' track.

Thanks though!

some useful stuff there! But not what I'm after. I want to be able to use dummy clips to control effects that live in my return channels, not on the audio channels... is it possible?

Could you take your send track and route it to a regular track, then put the effects that were on the send there and make your dummy clips there?

You cant sorry, sucks but....
You can use pareral effects
same theres no analog routing system like on a neve etc
route your track to the aux,
from the aux use the i/o to send to a new audio buss
on the audio buss have the effect delay...
now use your dummy clip here
