Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

Wow it seems like such a never ending learning curve. It's funny how I can edit something and then listen back to it at a later time and wonder 'what the heck was I thinking'. My dilemma is cheap recording equipment and possibly undue tenacity to think I can edit it away! Here I go again: Yes, high ...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

More thanks Treb! Rolling right along here.. I used the Voxengo stereo touch! To good results and only on a mono, never duplicating to stereo and it worked assuming that is what it is intended to do work for just mono.. though I need to seek a manual out for this plugin, or experiment with it on a d...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

Thanks Trebor I experimented with the GVST GMulti compressor and you're right! I got better results, and I compressed/and more without having to use high pass i.e, low cut. It's quite a learning curve though.. more trial and error needed. I see I can lower or raise whole band levels along with addin...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

Update- My new edits are labeled Eao for edit as Odessa, Odessa being my favorite song edit result so far of my trial and errors, here: https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=14145195 My conclusion for my type of low quality recordings is to not cut anything except to get the volume up - so (for the mo...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

As usual I've redid things not happy with any approach, again: I'm working with a low fi recording recorded in a car! a lot working against it not to mention talent-that's a whole other discussion. So just to get the best out of these here's what I did: Session 1: Odessa Edits (ALL-IN-1) 28 minutes!...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

Here is the previous edit sample (E4) now rejected because it had too much infra sound! wolf_e4_sample_with_no_HP.wav wolf e4.PNG It's hard to hear the difference but I can and I still don't understand why a lot of professional releases retain this low-end and it sounds fine.. I'll guess it just dep...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

I think I got it but I don't think I can tweak this lo-fi session anymore than I have. It was recorded in my car with acoustic guitar with a Tascam DR05.. I keep trying to get what I can get out of this, I don't have anywhere else to record really and I don't think I'm going to record like this agai...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

Great info Trebor, much appreciated! PS I noticed you removed original recommended links/effects plugin links.. I guess because this went a different way but I have noted them for possible future use. I think it was you that also led me to the GVST plugins, linked here, they are great free tools!! I...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

BTW Black Dog, you should remove all infrasound with a high-pass filter before applying compression ... RevBlackDog-HighPass.gif Infrasound is inadible to humans, but will interfere with the correct operation of a compressor. Really? I've tried both ways and concluded I'm losing something good when...

Re: Is there a plugin that automatically envelopes?

Thanks all/no and yes --- and I've noted/bookmarked those plugins to get back ASAP and delve in and maybe try but 'going to be hard to beat the envelope tool for accuracy being it's so manual, thus precise. Great tool, an auto option would be interesting but again probably not as good as the accurac...
