Ah, for some reason didn't realize you were referring to the DAW feedback video
My questions in posts before the video were also relating to trying to achieve a similar result but using software.
I do intend on getting some hardware distortion and compressors in the near future, but for the moment I’m interested in trying something out using software distortion and compression and sending that to my hardware mixer for feedback.
Maybe I should make it a bit clearer what I have to work with.
I have a small basic modular set up, including sinewave osc, vca’s, envelop, filters, reverb and delay, basic stuff. I have a big muff bass fuzz pedal. A 16 channnel mixer. A 18i20 audio interface and Logic or Maschine along with various plugin packs which have the software effects covered.
So I so I could simply copy what’s shown in that video by using Maschine as my midi controller or just do it all inside Maschine using Maschines aux channels. I can get my head around that just about!
What I would like to do though is setup a effects chain of distortion in my daw and send that to my hardware mixer (I guess to the aux sends) that way I could use my modular as a sound source and have that on a separate channel on the mixer, I could probably use the muff pedal as a channnel insert on that channel too. (Now this is where I start losing track of my thoughts) So I guess I set up another channel for the white noise, I can either take this from the modular or send it from the daw to a separate channel on the mixer. Then I need to set up a compression stack in software and sidechain that from the sine to the noise. I think this is the bit I’m stuck on. So far I have one channel of sinewave and one channel of white noise, along with one aux send with distortion that I can send to sinewave channel and feed it back on itself. Do I just set up another aux channel for the compressors and send the sidechain to the sinewaves to the noise?
Sorry for the huge essay but I felt I needed to write it out so I could understand what I’m trying to do. Hybrid systems really confuse me for some reason.
