Live PA Rack Instructions
Sweep: A simple bandpass filter sweep, using an EQ instead of a filter for a wider bandwidth. As you move up to the higher frequencies, the EQ’s resonance increases.
SC Gate: A trance gate-style effect; to activate it, you’ll need to sidechain it to an audio signal. Open up the “SC Gate” sub-rack inside the Live PA rack, then select an audio source (anything staccato and rhythmic, like a hi-hat loop, works well) in the “Audio From” menu. The more you turn up the SC Gate macro knob, the more drastic the gating effect will be. The sub-rack also contains a light reverb effect to smooth out the gating; you can disable or remove this reverb if you need to save CPU.
SC Comp: Just like the gate effect, the sidechain compression effect needs an audio source to activate. Open up the “SC Comp” effect inside the rack and select a kick drum track in the “Audio From” menu. Turn the SC Comp macro knob all the way to the right for a pumping effect; lower it for more subtle compression.
Long Verb: Sends the audio through a reverb effect; the more you turn it up, the longer the reverb tail will be. Great for washing out sounds during a transition between songs.
BG Delay: This effect combines a pitched-up grain delay with a ping-pong delay to create a kind of background melody based on the source sound.
Stutter Cut: Cuts the audio’s volume on every quarter note. The more you turn the knob, the deeper the volume cut is. Change the “Rate” setting inside the Stutter effect for faster or slower cuts.
Octaver: Like the Sweep effect, the Octaver sweeps the audio up through the frequency spectrum. Instead of smoothly sweeping the frequencies, though, it moves the audio through a series of filters, each tuned an octave above the last one (each filter is centred on C).
Multi-Delay: Sort of an “instant multi-track” effect, the multi-delay makes vocals wider and fuller. The Multi-Delay sub-rack contains three effect chains: one panned left, one panned right and one panned to the centre. It applies slightly different delay times to the left and right copies. The more you turn up the Multi-Delay macro knob, the longer the delay times will be. By default, the panned copies are -12 dB below the centre copy; you can raise or lower them inside the Multi-Delay sub-rack for a more or less subtle effect.
