Record effects output to a separate audio track

Post by Steve.Turner » Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:39 pm

Scenario:

- Guitar recorded dry to an audio track in mono signal
- Send to FX channnel with a reverb applied
- Want to have the REVERB effect recorded to a separate audio track
- Want to be able to render the reverb effect separate to the guitar signal
- Want to be able to solo the reverb sound without the original guitar input

I get how to record audio and create an fx channel then send the audio to the fx channel

I just cant work out how to then record the reverb effect as discrete audio to treat as a new independent sound

It's actually very easy.
Set the output of the fx channel to 'no bus'.
Create a new audiotrack to record your reverb on, and simply set the fx channel as input of that audio track.
Arm the audio track for record, play through the entire song et voila :).
Software: Steinberg Cubase Pro 8 64-bit.
Hardware: Intel i5 6600, 16Gb DDR3, Win7 64-bit
Mackie Onyx 1620i - Steinberg Midex 8 - Steinberg CC121.

My humble contributions to what could be considered music.

Hi, in Cubase 10 pro is not possible make this.
When I play the song for record, bounce, (in my case is the voice) the new audiotrack get the track of entire voice plus fx,not the fx single.

Here it is. The track 'Voz' is routed to fx channel 'Reverb Voz' and the audiotrack 'Reverb Voz record' get the audio from the fx channel. Both channels have the same sound: the voice plus the reverb.

It's a bit hard for me to see what's going on because the resolution of the image is low, but it looks to me based on what you write and what the meters show that you're doing the following:

Audio track - output to -> FX channel -> Audio track (for recording).

If your reverb is now NOT set to 100% dry then of course you get both a part of the original signal (dry) and the reverb (wet). In order to ONLY get the reverb your reverb has to be set to 100% wet.

If you don't normally work this way then I'll just add that in order to get the balance between wet/dry you would route like this:

Audio track - output to -> main outputs
Audio track - SEND to -> FX channel
FX channel - output to -> reverb record audio track
Reverb record audio track - output to -> main outputs

Now, if you do this you set the balance between dry original audio and reverb either a) by adjusting the faders on the respective channels, or b) by adjusting the send level (or both).

Oh my...I'm a dumb.
I don't know for one magical reason I thought that the FX channel only output the signal in wet.
Thanks very much.

You can also create dummy VST Connections outputs that aren't assigned to anything.
