I am a noob and while I have been using the Digitakt for the past month,5 I had not record it yet. Had a lot of troubles with DAWs etc.
Now I got Ableton to work with multitrack:
-8 tracks for the Digitakt Tracks
-Track 9 for my Microfreak (via digi Midi)
-1 Track for Pre FX (read somewhere that that was nice)
-1 Master track that hosts the Overbridge Plugin.
Now I am making mixing and effect adjustments on a track level. I am encountering two problems:
When soloing the Master track it sounds different. When muting it it sounds more mixed (after i added effects and adjustments)
1a. When exporting; do I export the Master track, or all the individual tracks? I tried the former but I don’t think it includes the track level mixing. What’s the logic here? How should I approach mixing and effects?
When I record something, and want to hear it back, it starts my Digi as well so I hear it twice. I can bypass this by Soloing the MAster track; but it wont mute my synth. Is this just a matter of Mute all on the Digi?
Thanks a lot! I have been struggling with Ableton, Reaper and Cakewalk and even Studio One and Couldn’t get the hang of it. Got a bit of experience with Ableton but not with external Hardware. I feel like I am so close!!
