Audio Effects & Audio Tracks .. A Question?

Post by ctguitars » Mon Oct 01, 2007 8:16 pm

Hi Guys,

I have a vocal take in an audio track. At the start of the vocal track are 4 words [ seperated by other words ] that I want to add delay to. The word is 'I'. In ableton can one add an audio effect to a specific track part as opposed to the whole track?

Use an clip envelope to change wet/dry for the delay. Or even better, put the delay on a send (100% wet) and modify send amount with a clip envelope.

Create A Return track... lets call it Send/Return A
(you may have to click the S/R button on the right side to actually see this track)

Now, in Arrangement view... open up the track automation (it'll be a sub heading under Mixer)

The level for SEND A should be a straight line at zero. Draw automation markers so that it raises to 127 over the words you want delayed, then back down to zero after.
(you have to double click the line to get an anchor point, then clickndrag to move it.)

Now, select the Return track. Drop in a delay plugin. Set wet/dry to 100% wet.

Viola. The words you drew little steps over are now delayed, and the delay doesn't cut out when you drop the Send level back to 0.
