Bussing Vocals

Post by PUMP » Sun Apr 22, 2018 9:59 am

Having a problem with bussing vocals trying to do parallel compression and share reverbs, delays, etc...... I’m editing rap vocals with leads, and doubles. Is it designed for me to use separate buses for each track? Say for instance I’ve sent a lead to a parallel compression bus, a reverb bus, an echo bus, and a delay bus. Now when I attempt to send the double track to that lead to the same buses, anyone of them, they get thrown completely out of time and I have to create all the same buses separately for the double. Is it meant to be this way or am I missing something? Is it due to me using 4096 while mixing?

Are you using any Aux sends?

Basically there is a bug on the Aux send slots that are on the Master Channel: your project latency gets added to them, like a pre-delay.

The workaround is to create an empty stereo channel and assign your Aux input to that, then add your Aux effects on that channel. Bonus is you can daisy-chain effects on that Aux channel, so it's a better workflow anyway. But avoid using the Aux sends on the Master strip, always leave them empty.

Not using any aux sends I was just creating new buses... I have no clue how to route the aux sends could you explain

808 Lyra Keyboard/Piano Roll Keyboard

Post by Dylan Bob » Thu May 03, 2018 4:23 pm

Hello'

Hoping someone could help me figure this one out. I would like the ability to play an 808 style Bass/Kick with the Lyra/Piano Roll keyboard so the sounds are the tune of the keys played ?

My original thought was upload an 808 Sample however how would I get the right tuning for the keys played?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

I’m sure this is a pretty basic question but I have searched the forum and not found anything that helps directly so I could definitely use some advice.

When I first started using Auria one of the first things I did was bring over some half-finished projects from my physical HD-based recorder as I was worried that the disk drive was about to fail.
One of the projects had a TR-808/Sh-101 rhythm track. I’ve now built up the track to its finished form but find that the rhythm bed sounds really weak.
Are their any recommendation for how I can get the drum machine/bass line combo to sound weightier so that it sits better with everything else.
I don’t have any kid of midi timecode so I can’t sync up another drum machine. I’m hoping that some enterprising soul out there may be able to suggest something clever based on what Auria inherently includes.

Many thanks for any help and advice. I hope my explanation is clear enough :-)

I would use eq and compression to bring the 808/sh101 up to the level and impact of the newly added track. Take a look at the frequencies that make up the rythm track using ProQ, then look to see if any of the other tracks are using the same frequencies. If they are, try to make room for the rythm tracks frequencies by cutting those frequencies a bit on the other tracks. Try mixing the other tracks lower than the rythm track so that it stands out. My guess is that the newer tracks use sounds that are full of frequencies that are masking the rythm track. You will need to balance these tracks both in level and frequency. You can use parallel compression and eq to gradually add some more power to the rythm track. You do this using the bussing system. Good luck

Hi Anthony -

Thank you for the response. It took me a bit of Googling to find out what you meant by ProQ (I'm still relatively new to the world of software-based Multitracking/DAWs) but got there in the end. However £30 for what is essentially an EQ seems a lot.

Is it really worth the money (that is a genuine question)?
