Loopmash FX

Postby djpatb » Fri Dec 06, 2013 4:02 pm

I was very curious about Loopmash FX. If I read correctly here on the forum some people thought it only worked on audio(tracks) But that's not the case... it also works on midi/vst/group channels etc.

Automating the several effects is also very convenient.
Just add an automation track below your audio/instrument/group channel and you can draw a line to trigger the right effect in a group. You can choose Effect group 1 (tapestop/vinyl) Group 2 (stutter) etc... Then determine the height of the line to trigger the desired effect with all the way down set to bypass...

I'm very happy with loopmash. I don't like assigning extra midi to trigger effects like it works with Effectrix. I myself use stutter and tapestop a lot so perhaps Loopmash is a better vst for me. Still testing a bit so not sure about it ;)

Just wanted to let you know because I read a lot about it...

I don't have 7.5 so I have to ask. When you do this automation, do you get the names of the effects in automation lane? (i.e if it's 1/2 or 1/4 etc).

Was thinking on creating a VST Expression Map to map them as key-switches into the effect. That way you can get the names of the effects on the lanes, a bit like in the Glitch plugin.

So it definitely has it named. Cool!
You do, however, not see it on the automation curve itself (obviously). This shouldn't really be a problem because each lane has only like 5 values so it's easy to see.

Been fooling around the last few days and it's pretty ok! Don't think i'm returning back to effectrix...
But 1 disadvantage... If you use effects from all 5 groups... You get a lot of automation lanes... But it's ok...

That's awesome.

This adds a new dimension, something that I've never been able to do. Who knows what will come of it? Genius.
