Join Alex U. Case for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up an effects loop in a DAW, part of Foundations of Audio: Delay and Modulation.
Pro Tools, Logic and all DAWs make it easy to add delay to your session.…Pro Tools provides a representative example.…Seek out the Essential Training title for your particular DAW in the lynda.com…Online Training Library for a deeper exploration of this process as it applies…to you.…Pro Tools provides two signal flow structures for introducing effects to your…session, and both the signal flow and the nomenclature are borrowed directly…from large-format analog consoles.…So if you happen to recorded Led Zeppelin in the 70s, Tears for Fears in the…80s, or Pearl Jam in the 90s, then you already know what to expect.…
The two approaches are inserts and sends.…Inserts locate the plug-in directly in the signal flow of the track, the entire…track feeds the plug-in, and the plug- in output feeds right back to the track,…making its way to the fader and into your mix.…Inserts are an all or nothing sort of approach, you either have the effect…or you don't.…Insert and activate an effect on the track and you only hear the affected track.…
