1- All the 8 envelop folower are at the end of the signal chaine, but it 100%WET all the sound pass to it (is it helping you ^^ ? )
Thanks for the response!
So my use case is pretty much side chaining, but rather than side chaining the volume, I'd like to use the envelope followers to side chain other parameters of other parts--
Say I want a drum-loop's amplitude to automate the filter cutoff of a synth on another part, but I don't want the synth's filter to cutoff on every amplitude peak of the drum loop, so I need a threshold parameter to set the desired level at which the drum-loop level will trigger its envelope follower. Also, I would not need to hear the drum-loop, it's only used to create the amplitude peaks for the envelope follower to be sent to the synth part.
Would this work?--
Part 1 has a drum-loop -> assigned to Bus 1 -> Compressor inserted on Bus 1 -> Bus 1 NOT assigned to the outputs.
Part 2 has a synth line -> assigned to Bus 2 -> Bus 2 assigned to L/R outs.
Assign the drum loop's envelope follower to the synth's filter cutoff.
Play the drum loop -> set the threshold of the compressor to the desired sensitivity so that the drump loop does not trigger the envelope follower on every amplitude spike.
So now the synth part's filter follows the rhythm of the drum loop without going too crazy with each amplitude peak of the drumloop.
