I’m working on this track. There’s a main verse kind of thing and I want it to build up to an ambient part with a solo instrument, and for this part I want everything to slowly quiet down and then after the solo “wake up” again.
So what would be the best way to do this “silencing” of the rest of the tracks for the attention to be fully brought to the solo? I’m doing it right now with automating/lfo’ing the volume on the master track, but I figured I should ask here first about this, in case there’s some kind of complications with doing it this way or if there’s a better way to do this.
you can also put all tracks that need to be “silenced” together on one sendtrack and use automation on that. i guess it’s a besser way than lowering the volume on the master track. or use the gainer device to boost the volume of the “solo track”. actually, there are dozens of ways to do this…
I would say that this would be a bad idea because if you lower the master track’s volume through an envelope or lfo it will also lower the solo tracks volume. I agree with plasmaniac about using send devices on all the tracks that you want to make quiter and then automating the volume on the send track with whatever you want. I probably wouldn’t use a gainer to make the solo track louder because then it might overpower the mix.
