Pick your brain if you like problem solving.
I have 2 Tracks on OT that ‘alternate’ - sort of I send one monophonic melodic line and I have a Translator that bounces each consecutive note back and forth between two Audio Tracks so that tails don’t get cut off so readily, yadda yadda.
Well, I actually want both of those Audio Tracks to feed into ONE more Track for a couple of Extra FX. Right now I’m dedicating 4 Audio Tracks to this system: 2 for Audio Samples and 1 each for extra fx.
But I want to control the FX together, which I can do via Translators (just duplicating the data for both MIDI Channels) - BUT Looking for a more elegant solution:
- One option I’m thinking is using Mono Samples and routing the audio out the CUE and then pumping that back into the OT. Or wait, not sure I need Mono, but I’m pretty burnt out right now to properly formulate the question. Basically: Send the Audio from these two playing Audio Tracks into an audio loopback to snag it on a Thru Machine for further processing. I dunno - I don’t really loopback audio.
- Route all OTHER Tracks to CUE OUT and use a Master Channel, where only the Audio ‘Live Play’ Tracks are basically not on the CUE output. Note: I haven’t checked/verified, but for some reason I have it in my head that CUE outputs don’t get routed thru the Master Channel in Studio. I think I just tested it and that’s the case, but I really get lost on the OT. Sorry. This uses Studio Mode & Track 8: Master.
Note: OT is not my primary device. It is basically slaved to a Pyramid and shares audio duties with 4 multitimbral synths (one being used for drums), one polyphonic, and one monophonic. So the OT is picking up sampler duties with these Alternating Melodic Tracks, a Loops/Mangle Track, one more Chromatically Sequencer-Played Track, and 2-3 Sample Trigger Tracks with the Sequencer modulating parameters.
