Re: Suggestions to improve my Band's Scene
I'm confused about how one would go about adding or removing a particular effect on an individual channel.
Actually it is opposite to that thinking. Using the SOF (sends on fader) feature (by selecting the FX bus on the right and adjusting the channel faders on the left), you are sending individual channel signals to that bus. That bus feeds the FX engine as a dry signal. The more you increase a particular channel send, the more it is applied to that particular FX.
If I adjust the slider on the FX buss it changes all of the channels?
That is correct. The FX bus is identical to a monitor bus. If you increase the bus fader, it adjusts the mix level to the FX engine.
If I adjust the slider on the channel it doesn't seem to have much effect.
That may be because I noticed that you are using more than one FX engine at the same time. So adjusting one channel send to an FX will not be noticeable, since you are also hearing the wet signal of the other FX engines. I usually only use one FX on vocals at any one time. Most of the time I use a plate reverb. Sometimes for ballads, etc. I may use a vintage reverb, but rarely both at the same time (mute one and unmute another).
Also, under the sends tab how and when should I adjust the FX sends?
The Sends tab is just another way of viewing and adjusting the channel sends. Usually lead vocals get less FX (which brings the vocal forward) and backing vocals get more FX (which sends the vocals rear-ward).
As always, Thanls for your help.
You are most welcome Willie.
