1. Introduction: Hello, welcome to the course. In this course, I will teach you think you need to know to get started in waveform. Waveform has a huge list of features which I will be covering, like the interface, base plates or audio effects and made the effects themes and some much more. Zooming out will also adding bonus content to the course. Well be quoting waveform seem patches and covering any add-ons for waveform, along with any part checks have created in my phone. So if you want to learn the ins and outs of waveform, welcome. 2. Start up Settings: Today I'll be talking about the settings of waveform where we will go through in detail. But please, if you're already set up for a form or just want to skip this part, co-head. On the startup. On the left is the help menu. Click on each one, which will go to that page and let you set a finger up, which is straight forward. On this setting section, we have the pyramids. We can tell to the change and looks to SUE ellen needs a different language, choose different fonts, colors, and so on. It can even change the display size. Or if you have a Noether monitor, we can tell wave form to load these plug-ins on either the first or the second monitor. We can also change where the browser will be. A browser is simply Reagan loader plugins and samples and presets and so on. We can change the meters decay time, how quickly the file name will show up on their metres. Or do devices simply allows you to choose what audio device you are using here, output and input. Output simply means your headphones or speakers. Input means microphone, works tone or device such as hardware effects. Since we can press this test button, which will make a simple sine wave sound to make sure you have correctly said effort got to be able to hear where on your headphones or speakers on the white are the channels where everything gets rooted. For example, output 12 are the outputs LEFT_OUT and why, and here are the inputs. Sample way, aka the measurements of the sound are being taken at 3 second, though, equals less quality, higher rights equals higher quality of the sound. At this white is the standard works for online streaming goes CD formats, audio both a weight size is the amount of time it takes for your computer to process any incoming audio signal. If you just choose the music and not really mind about recording latency, I highly recommend you to set this up to the houses you can, there'll be less usage on the CPU. Cpu cores simply shows how many cores you want to use or recommend using the format so you can have the best performance for the other free options or where do you pretty much explained? You can also click on the icon next to them. Rich will give you a crater tea towel. I also loved to point towel is when you hover over certain stuff, a help menu will pop up, which were also explained things as well, which is a quake reminding tor. Also though Pierre Ella, top white corner chords where we can either make our own custom codes or did they the default ones useful for later use when midi editing control services allows you to control your door by hardware mixers, hardware, drum machines. And also controllers, which you should see the ones you have connected here, or you have to create a custom control surface. Here. At the bottom, you have settings for the selected control surface. Downloads where you can download added content. Foil locations is simply where thinks located. You can change, we can add custom paths or we move them. This is where you also want to accustom path to the VST plugins that you have installed. Here, we can either explore or load the settings like presets, tupled mappings. On this setting, we can even make waveform to go to the project page or Settings page, or go to the last food page. When we start waveform, we though edits upon lunch is simply where if you have leftward checked or more than one project opened and you close waveform and start right for me will low dope them. Paychecks. Stop over edits when changing tabs is if you're playing your main project, but you also had over projects playing at the same time. But you only want to check that you're in to have sound playing. Only leave this on or turning off to hear every project. You have opened. Option saving when closing down the project. Generate edit previews that allows waveform to a preview on network check star page. Enabled mastering with cloud balance is a online surface that masters you Songs for points. Different importing options where if a plays an audio example, you'll either ask for if the file should be copied. These two offer option here, we got different rename modes for we can rename the source file of the old girl, and the rest is pretty much self explained. We can talk to the change are key pulled show cuts to our own preference. We simply click on one of the quiet boxes and we can either remove the shore or change it to own, or we have the choice to have more than one show coat to that certain command by clicking this plus sign and entering in the desired keyboard shortcut. We can also search other top or press the key Bookshop on the throttle here below, we can reset it to the default settings or clear all the shortcuts we'd use. The old shortcuts even can pick up ten or Cubase ones. We can feel the shortcuts in your web browser. Now, let's say you have made the perfect settings for your keyboard shortcuts. But what's this? Your computer or laptop cup pool can know formatted. Well, we can even save our own custom keyboard shortcuts into a file and open files. Here we can make our own scripts for macros by using Java. Script tree editor where we can make grouped and truck macros or scripts into the tree. Here are the loop settings. We can change a path. We can scan in the new loops. We can also allow or don't allow certain file formats to the loop database. At the bottom here, we can set the order what comes first? And then beyond this search engine here, we can just report books, crashes, and so on. Here you can see all the midi devices that you have connected to your computer or laptop. If you have a mediocre people can't see it on the list that you may have to evil being stole it, or you haven't installed manufacturable tribes as usually you have to just block the immediate T4 is seen and it should show up. Also be sure to press refresh if you are just so many plug dual midi device. And it should appear here at the top. The main one we need is the input played the nose. You can also enable or disable. I will quickly though, DO Bedford checked and show you how to set it up using your midi device. We click on the darker shade trees onto the track name. In select your media device is simple as that. And we can make our own custom virtual midi. Below, we got fervor settings to change that meet these settings. Here we have everything to do with plugins. I highly recommend you to start by scanning any fears TPP looking so you may have installed on your computer by clicking, scanning, and sorting. If you haven't already added custom fields, three pathways, then press this plus sign here to the folder you want to add reimbursed, you can add as many paths here. We move them, put this minus sign. Then you press scan and wave form moves scan all the plugins, and you will be able to use the third-party plugins in your projects. You will see the stockings on the search engine. Clear. This rich rule would delete all the plug-ins for my iPhone. Validate files. We'll double-check all of the plug-ins to see if they work in. We can even add tags to them by tracking the plugin to the add tag or we can remove the tag. Also a reminder that if you're wanting 64-bit version of Wave for me won't need load of 64-bit cloak Qin's, vice versa, full 32 bit. There is a solution to list by using external software could shape which, which will sandbox for a two bit lookings to 64-bit. So you can load any 3e to pluck in waveform. Here we have more options. Put the one I'd like to point out is enabled plug-in sandboxing. This is amazing feature has seen if one of the blockings crashes instead of the host aka waveform crashing to, it will need to activate the plugin. And if this ever happens, we simply click on this icon on the top, wire up the project, and press F3 star sandbox. But this uses more of your CPU. We can Mandalay turnips them, parks off certain plugins you tourist by clicking this, our sign here. Here we have a list of useful videos. 3. Project Page: Okay, now we are going to have a look on the projects page. Now, if I have selected that project, you will see here we can see a preview of the project, which we can also change depreciation boy, first imply and move your mouse to different parts of the pre-fill. It will show the last time you have saved the project and how long the project tears. We can also share, say, archive of this edit, which rule allows you to quite a waveform archive file, which is the port checked and all the assets you need to load it to a novo copy of waveform. They're very useful for sending it to enough or computer and easier if you're also working with a song with so on, through the internet and so on. Or we can share prefigure flip project, which we will open the folder of the foil off that pre few, and that's what you are listening to when you hit play on a prefix to the way, we have all of the assets files containing that project. For example, vocals, Kick Snare is the any samples and so on. This may also known to sum over dose as they pool, we can also disable and enable these Pan newsboy few options. Good advice is to turn off the middle panel has to react. It misfires in actual projects themselves. We can also change to the single list. Here we can see anything that you have exported again, you can turn this column, laugh, it's all down to your own preference. Nets are locked to point tell when you have installed waveform, it comes with a completed manual, but she can access boy coming to help pick. So the four user guide. We can create a new project open for objects, a folder, and we store backups. And finally, we can also download demo projects. We can change the location where these demo projects will be downloaded. And then it tap white corn and I can see how much present you are at when downloading. 4. Interface and Basic Functions: Okay, that's cryptically start a new project, changed the name to whatever you like. And here we can change the location of the project opener T four ed. It simply means once you have created this project, you will open up this file as a default. Here we can choose what template to use for now and let's pick the default template. Okay, let's close the help menu. First fingers at the bottom left, this first icon MOOC spend more panels. Menu on the left, the properties in the middle and the transport on know-why. And also if you click on certainly object within waveform, you get to see that you can see that the object settings properties is also known as inspecting some opposite doors. We can also click that icon and again it goes away. Nets icon opens a menu which has basic functions. Nets icon is the undue. Nets icon is a we do. And this wrench icon opens properties. Now this net set of icons are from the transport. The next banded, the transpose here. But when we have expanded, they are here. And the first icon is loop playback. So in order to set or per loop, we simply go here at the top with a time points located and truck this blue icon to hear or better ways to double-click and hold at certain locations. And net goal. Also the short court, it's owl for loop, nets icon. The snap mode on all of this is if you want clips or audio files to snap to the quid. The key port show coats q. Net surplus, this quo icon, where it will further playback cursor on the screen. The keyboard shortcut is S. We can zoom in on the tracks by using the mouse wheel. We can click and track and the time part to move left or why, or use the scroll bars to go down. And Nepal deaf term y. Holding down, pressing all and left-click. It's left more than one clip. Pressing space bar will play the actual sung. Holding down Control and using the mouse wheel, we can make the trucks bigger or more thin. We can also zoom in by holding down Control and pressing o on Windows or it's shift and for Mac. And we click and drag and two until assume we simply press left-click while holding down the shortcut. That's icon, midi, learn, click on there, then pick whatever action you would like to sign to love media controller and press on new media controller. Or click on the icon again, closer. This icon, this match room, you'll make a clicking sound that is sync to the tempo of your sung. Useful if you want to be coding time if they're sung. Nets icon Lux automation to clips. This nets icon is put punch in and punch L that will punching recordings between them that in marker and out marker. This next icon turns on me d times chase on and off on case you're chasing it to external hardware. Nets are the basic transport options. Automation weed, which simply will lead automation in the project. If it's after automation will be ignored. We got automation record where we can record automation by moving the thing we want to automate, instead of just making points. I will quickly user falling him, but I quick exemple record, put into record. We also go panic button where ill. We start the audio engine, rewind, all go forward. Next, crates clips from knew less audio and midi input. Here we can change a project's tempo, the key, and their time signature. And that's two there is the time code tells you whether play cursors. And the master section where we can click, drag out, looking in from the search engine or y, Click on the space and add a new plugin. And we also got a master volume control and a master pan control. We also have a meter next to that. And if we right click, we can change the DF and meta modes. Okay, at the top white, first icon will show podcasts of any task like downloading and search. Regards CPU meter, click on it and they all show order plugins and how much percent they are using the CPU will. If the plugin is taking too much CPU usage, we can easily disabled that plug-in and save some CPU power or enable it again. Or it's bad to freeze a track where it will disable the plucking, but you still be able to hear that track. And we go into the actions here on the left and press unfreeze. If you wanted to add to that plucking settings or change meeting notes, then freeze again to save CPU usage. Next icon is kill sandbox plug-ins. In. Click here to watch video tips on my phone. This icon will make wave cone to full screen mode. Here we can know different layout presets. We can even save our own. For the last icon we can show or hide certain panels. For example, we can show the mics, a tap well how he did it and so on. Totally T-I-O-N preference. Now on their debt, we have all the quick actions we can have more by going to add macro. And now it's a huge list to choose from. If you want to hide their certain action, all favor white click on OnStar and press evil want nets. We have Files tab, we can go through the heart wipe Files and find samples and so on. On the search engine here are loops, presets and plug-ins to place the audio files, aka loops click and drag them onto the tracks to place blocking. So Presets click and truck lamp here. Once we have a place at plucking, we can also click and trap them around. Why Click on the plucking bore more options. We can also click on any of these tags as well. Nets we can make our own mixed group. To create one, we simply click on the track, hold down, shift and click, and right click and press quite adept mixed group. We have selected tracks. Well, we're never waste. Press quite new group here at the button. Double-click on the group and select what trucks you want in the crew and your CSR connects to the track and it's crib color. We can rename change color will enable different modes where that say if we change the Farley man and the update trucks in their group, it will also apply to every offered track in accrual. We don't have to double-click to see Settings. We can go on the Bench Bar or expand icon. Next up is tracks where we can disable or hide. And lastly, we have markers, which I'll explain in the late Taft video. And we can also add more than one browser by pressing this plus sign as many times as we like. And we can close them. Also, if we have more than one browser panel open and playing different audio files at the same time. We can come here and start off them, which will stop all the audio from playing. Or we can play all the h browser panel will start playing ordeal. We trigger in place when I have this mode on the different panels, if I hit play or everything will be set from the beginning. We can also shift and crack these clips to the track. And we will have more options to choose form. Also on the track, there will be always be volume and pan along with a main tab. And we can either solo or meet them and only speak, assign the output to different tracks and so on. Lastly, we can drag and drop this quake plus sign to a track, which will give you a list of things to track and drop on the track. We're better ways to white click, which will give you more of a visual by looking at the plugins. As you may notice, FRD pipe lookings will not have pitches to the names to fix this regard settings, blockings, and click here to scan full cloaking thumbnails. 5. Clips & Midi editing: Today I'll be talking about clips, which contains audio or midi notes. We can clear new midi. We simply go to this red plus sign here. Click and drag to any track and you will have then have fleas for options to choose from. Let's just make emitted clip. We can move the clip around by holding down left-click and track this top header up the clip. We can also press a which rosette that loop around any clips plus OWL to activate loop mode on. We can double-click the Amid the clip and their piano wall will show up. We can tell me denotes by either double-clicking or using this drawing tool here. We can also click and trip these notes around or make them longer or shorter by clicking holding at the end of the notes or the staff windows. To be able to hear anything, we must first have their plugin which will generate the sound. Let's quickly though, don't play foam synth subtractive. And here add button, we got a tour barf or midi editing. And with the mouse tool selected again, we can move notes around and can hear these notes. Or if you want to not hear what's playing. We can also hit this Farley my icon here. We can also hold down Control and press the key to Slept order notes in that key. Pressing down a hole and mouse left-click, we can scroll up or down on the piano wall. We can zoom in by holding down old and using the mouse wheel. Or we can also make the notes wider or smaller by pressing down control and using the mouse wheel. Now on this toolbar we have default midi editing tools like philosophy, that if your wonder note to be lower or higher in volume, and we got controllers and if you press the plus sign here, we have more options and default media controls useful when using a sample library. For example, a sample low-power inside of contact, a mouse tool, which I've already explained, a drawing told there, instead of having to press double-click, we can just hold down left-click to draw our notes. A delete tool, click and hold to remove nodes. A line taught it's draws lines of notes. We can also use some of these tools to update the controls like that philosophy and so on. A paint push which is useful when using the patent general writer wrote shell will explain later. We can also change the color up to the selected nodes. A note for velocity. Here we can change the length of the nose. Ness is step turning on and hate recode and plus any knows, it will place that note symbol in that zoomed back out to fit to this green k transpose button, which we can change the pitch of the nose. Quantized, we will snap knows. We can even add, add, swing to them. And lastly, we have codes where we can add custom codes. Now, let's say you're working with many midi clips on different tracks, but you'd like to add them all at once. Well, we can if we select the meeting notes we want to add to it. You will see older mid eclipse on new piano wall. And you can edit animal hide them if this icon here, oh, if you want to not be able to add the, the nodes in this certain clip, we simply turn off this trolling Comic-Con here. Not only that, if we have audio files in the project, if we come down here and pick the audio file, it will show that, oh, do you follow useful when looking out drum patterns from Trump? Oops. Before we move on, we can double-click on the track and within the clip, Thyestes on that track, you will also see that piano on that track. And we can add notes instead of double clicking on the clip to see the p-n, the wall. That eclipse. We can show some clips by clicking and holding these alos songs. All this icon here will move the clip, but we will not move that note. Smith it. The next one is instead of mutant Eclipse, it will move the notes. And next one is looping mode. The loops that clip and a few make any changes to the clear B will also apply to all of the clips that you have flipped form. We can also click and check the N W clip to make the loop longer no matter if it's a midi and audio clip. Next is just like looping mode where we can move that clip around. But if we click on the icon again, we can expand it from the link so we can add to that clip without affecting the over one. And this last one will bend that may deal or deo by tracking elsewhere on the timeline. The thought illnesses video on tracks. We can rename them, change color, say image by right-clicking on the track. We can create folders, some place tracks into them, which is a great way to organize your project's. 6. Pattern Generator: Now I want to talk about picking the best feature in my form as Gut compared to overdose, which is a patent general ITA. Let's first of all quite a midi clip and click on Events icon. Or for this instance is expand the panels. We have all the editing tools like full from PNO. Now select the patent Chen and my TA panel. And we have four modes to pick from. This pick the first one we've patented and my tail media keys on its own. And they're really quite way of making Sung's lot faster compared to offer doors. Now with pattern generator, it will further the Pachet k. So it's always stays in K, which is useful to choose a k, k on the transport and choose what key U1. Or you can just change it to follow a certain k here. We can change the velocity scale here. The pat in depth, which will make the notes longer or shorter. Gate to show tunes the level of notes. In this mode, genomite notes like OP style offline and a default settings. It also place a root note, which we can turn off here, and steps we can choose how many nodes to fit in each of the bars. We can choose for the notes to go up or down. And also you also notice when the tacos mode on, on the white side you will see the styles change. Styles Simply change to the way how the meeting notes are being generated and choose which one you like to know. And here we can change the code for questions after some. Also if we remove them or by pressing oh, it will also give us suggested codes fo useful. We can also type the numbers on the keyboard as well to change a coords. Next mode up codes, which will generate codes for. This time, we have presets to choose from which that changes a code from how many codes there are and the length. And we can also spread the code. Also on their piano wall. We can chain these icons here and change that up tips or shift to change the code. And we can also do this in the patent Chen and whiter. Base mode will be symbols off a bass player all full of sound. And we got different presets. And lastly, we got married day you turn them like you will see their meeting notes, but they are mood to activate them, paint, push selected, and protect the ones you want as you Melody. We can change the note, then. We can also turn on all the notes in that key. Show open sets up the code Pu question. We can also click here to run a nice notes in the melody, which is a nice feature. 7. Audio Editing & Recording: In this video, I'll be talking about that audio editing. Our will place any audio file into a track reimburse. You can hold down shift and hold down left-click to move to the Y or left. Some of these controls may be different for a MAC. And we consume in holding down o and newsy mouse wheel. We can also double-click and they track to expand the track and have their bed look at the actual waveform. There are food shortcuts here to zoom in CML. We also got this audio icon here, which we will expand the waveform. Useful if there are audio wave form is small. And the clip, we can press D to copy and paste a clip. Whatever if it's audio or midi clip or plus delete, delete the clip. If we press forward slash key, it will split a clip on where the cursor is placed. We embed BF always options when we expand that panel here. You may also notice when we have our audio clip selected, you can also see on the left and on the Y you see these icons. Here. We can fade in, fade l, the volume by holding down left there can track the ferry quite right to start popping sounds. Or sometimes he moved face issues. We also have developed fade in and out modes to choose from. Not only that, if we wake their colonies fade icons, we can pick to speed up where instead of fading gain that volume, it will change the pitch, which makes nice effect. And unease options we have standard or do toes like prefers, change tempo and so on. We can go to the loop plop T's, and we can auto pitch as long as we know the root note. Let time where we can pick or making the icons and move in trapped him around, which changes tempo up to a certain area of the audio. We can change the boot tempo up the audio to sink to the project's tempo. Change a pitch. We can also choose different stretch modes, which effects is sound up the audio. We can also get auto tempo, the any changes made to the tempo, you'll stay in sync. If we have more than one clip selected, we can also coop clip. It may now looks like one clip, but has he seen that left corner group and two clips, which means it's made up two clips and we can ungroup them. Also, you may notice on the audio clip though is a Fx on the head there of the clip. If we click on it, it will show up different bunch. Some of these effects like the pitch shift, a clue line more peer, though we can click and drag. Clicking and dragging up. You increase the pitch level below the pitch. And we can double-click to make these squares shaped icon and move the circles. We can delete these points by double-clicking on them. And we can hold down control Command on the Mac and we can make a step style move. Before I end this video, I like to talk about tracks and how you can start recording. Click on a track and under track options, we have mu unmute terminus on to move the track to not hear where sunlight is reflected. So load trucks are the only class that we'll play. Solo isolate to make it so that the track, whenever the overland tracks are so low. We can also shrink or quot letrec size. We can phrase the track on phrase and so on. To start recording, on the left side of the truck is a dark inquiry. All we're there, we can pick the device you want to record with, and we can click on the amount of inputs we won. And once you have selected the white defies pressed record or NAGPRA on the transport. We can even record from different tracks. Click on the input device and slept and audio tracks and pick the track you want to recover. Also, if we setup and loop and record a few times and stop, the old recordings were not go. Instead you will get this plus sign at the bottom of this clip. And we can choose what recoding and delay the unused ones if we wanted to. 8. Arranger Track, Markers, Chords, Tempo: At the top we have ranger. We can rename the range Eclipse like intro, point down and so on that were useful to know where we are in the project. If you don't see the Ranger track, go to this icon on top white and click on the Ranger. You place a mid eclipse like normal and your inner Ranger marker and code tracks. Let's place it clip. We can have our mouse below the head up the clip, you will see your mouse cursor change, click and track the clip two elsewhere. And we can even move the clip or paste it. What this does, it copies everything. We feed no manger. All the audio files made the eclipse and paste it. Tempo is fairly simply either click and drag this red line to the tempo we run. Or if we want to change the tempo only at certain parts of the song, you simply double-click on the red line. We can also place markers. Markets allows us to person numbers on our keyboards, chunk to them by person in number and hitting Enter. Now under markers panel here on the left, you can double-click them to jump to that marker. Or if we hold down shift click to select ones we want to loop, impress a in our to activate the loop. Remember plus an a and a clear proof set the loop on that clip. We can also delete them from this Panama swell code truck is like what we've seen from piano wall from my patent channel whiter, who plays a clip and choose what cold put questions we want. We can make it further that global track. He will choose it to follow a Novocain. And if we play some cold track, it will stick to the code progressions. 9. Automation: Today I'll be showing you how to automate in waveform. First of all, on every track though is an a which stands for automation. If you click on it, you'll see a list of options to choose from, which will allow you to automate everything on that track. We can also automate this stuck plugins or third party plugins. And if you don't know what automation does, it simply allows you to white custom number to a certain thing like the volume Into Lit track. So it has to play the song that automation will change the file name. For example. We can copy and paste that automation, copy the points we want coffee or select the points and press Control and C, but we must have the line selected then press jaw and fi of voice, it wouldn't work. We can also make separate automation tracks by this plus sign. I also want to talk about quickly making automations with this feature. Where if I set up a loop for this newly made that automation to be, then click on a line up the automation and under Properties, click on quite pattern between this map region and choose what shape you want to quiet and how many per bar. And boom, it's faster way creating go automation. We also have three choices where you can click and click on these alloys and they will affect the automation itself and the free choices changes scale and that and displace curve. 10. Aux: Today I'll be talking about oak sends and 4xh returns. A orcs is simply buy up line goes to send a signal to a track and add any effects, then goes to the master. So there will be two versions, one toy version and the unaffected. And the second one will be wet with effects which I recommend today for the effects at a 100% where sometimes it's a way adding effects as sometimes you don't want to just add an effect without using this method. To do this, we must first of all at least have one truck you want to affect with an OCS, then search for auxin and place it on. The last thing on the truck effects off was if you have this scene of some kind and if you place it before that, it will not work. Okay, yes, we see there's different bosses to choose from. We can also rename his first book sample. Let's name it. We've best that's what we will be using. I will place a simple drum loop. Then search, OK, sweet turn and place it on the nova track. We could also just make a folder of trucks and code orcs. And we would play so of orcs and effects in them to make things more tidy. Be sure to place the return that first thing. And then you can CAFTA will affect the oak scent track. We show it's under same bursts that you want to effect. Then we simply add the desired effect. For my case, I refocus. Understand, we can change how much the b we want to send by either clicking on there and change it, or mood and mood ascend. Or we can just simply either change the level here on the track or just turn down the volume on the Orcs we turn track. We can have more than one sent to the same return bursts. 11. Modifiers: You may notice that a top void there is this icon which I haven't talked about yet. Well, it's called a modifier. We can click and drag here on any plucking even third party plugins, and they all multiply anything you want. For example, I seems pitch or frequency, or even their tracks volume. We have got different type of modifiers like LFO, breakpoint, step, and so on. For now, let's just use LFO. We can either place here are the top or all onto a track plucking. We can also right click here and can either disable it, will enable it, or we can disable it by clicking on this power. I can the EHR or turn it back on, or we can delete it or delete it. Boy, selecting it and pressing Delete on your keyboard. We can also click and hold on the SEC, same modifier and mud delight, different things if you wanted to. On the settings even go on their assignments tab. We can see all of the things, the modifiers, MAC delighting here we can tweak the offset or the value for more control. We can also remove the modulation by wakes licking rich one and hit remove an LFO settings. We can change his shape. And you can also see the display useful to see what's happening as we change the settings. We can change the weight or the speed tempo, which both changes how fast or slow it is. We can change the phase and offset. We had them play modes fully and transport will always be wanting. However, note mode as soon as it hits and now it will read trigger from the beginning of the modulation. Depth is how much smarter lotion you want to happen. You can click on the settings icon to choose the modifiers color. We can also click on any mud fires and on the white side of the tracks, it will highlight what logins are being affected in that modifier. With the over my differs the point where you can customize your own shape. Nets is steps we can either added or owned by holding down, left-click and drag or click on the dice icon, which will generate random steps. We can also click on the Paint Tool to remove o steps. Nets is FLO briefly standard settings. We got one done, pretty much self explained where a robot just multiply with one and values. And lastly, we got made the track as it picks up the notch will affect the modulation, or we can change it so that the velocity is effective modulation instead, we can also move the points around to IQ. 12. Racks: Now today I'll be talking about wax, which is like point plugins in their contain that. And it's more of a fish rule. And you can move different outputs and the smaller fake quite tip toe. To start a WACC, we first leapt up, plucking, then white click the login. You want to be placed into a WACC and pick up these plugins in their new rack plucking. Has he noticed on the white side you will be a plug new whack instead of the plug-in. We can also right-click here and plus new cloaking and under plucking wax quite a new empty whack. We can also use the official way of adding cloaking is as well. And wax are Handy, has a allows us to save or low doped presets. We can have a bit too few modes. Wacko stack edit tab by clicking this icon. Here, we can disable the plugins or the third party blockings, open them. Let's go back to the normal few mode. You may notice that we have these different colored lines which are warriors. If you hover over them, you will say what they are like. Read this for midi input, where if you person know altro them on piano wall, it will work if connected. Plu, the audio outputs LEFT_OUT and why? If per felt disconnected, you will not happen. The audio on the plank EVD on the left side or unavoidably speaker. And Queen are for the MAD foils, which I have explained in the last video, you can click and hold down modifiers to add them to the WACC. We can like thick to add the new cloaking and have all these different options to choose from. We get decided to if the y's will connect on its own when placing a login. If there's nothing else in the WACC. That's just said this same. You can also just use a search engine and click and drag. We can also click and track on least wires to connect them all be moved them by clicking on the connected boilers and click and drag. Instead of pressing white click for Trump menu options there also plus signs. And if you click on these plus signs outside of this red box, we can add tracks for use for when mounting a plug-in or a certain plug-ins to be routed to a different track. You can only slept at tracks, let your EIN in your project. So if I wanted more tracks, be sure to add mode tracks into the project. And once connected the plug-in that's connected to that certain track will be proud boy, that track, for example, volume or placing a audio effect and so on. But also rank connecting to more than one track. That is sound that's coming off the rack is being sent to them tracks as well. So if you want to place audio effects or turn the falling it down one track, you're going turn falling down for the West subject trucks as being connected. We can send one cloaking output two has many tracks we want. We can also hide the inputs and outputs by clicking care. They're far left are the inputs and the far side of the outputs. We can create new input, output channels. We can click on the plugin to open there. We can also use more than one plucking. For example, you can have more than one senior. And along with modifiers, the possibilities are endless. That is, omega is equal to theta, theta, which is given here. It's not that way. Okay? 13. Faceplates & Macros: Face plates are like macros, but much more, we can design our own faceplate. Now, waveform have phase plates preset so wordy or wet equated up its own disk to workstation plugins. However, I think it's better just creating our own com scripts when using third party plug-ins. But using the factory presets of what you can do face plates, we can either use face placing wax or just a normal plugin on any plugin, click on there. And under panel here we can see phase plates as TO follow IT tastes in Luck mode. We can't really do much. So let's unlock the faceplate, boil this lock icon here. As you can see, these dots will appear and we can start adding stuff. As always, we can save our own face plates here on this file icon or low doped presets, we can white click and we add the old change, all sorts. We can add controllers that controls whatever you have signed it to, to do bitches, anything from the plugin also turn off the luck to enable us to move the controls. We can add labels or tests. We can also change the size or white thickness. We can set different skins. All we move assignments or we move full controls and so on. And progressing left-click will print go, they simple Tropp menu. We can zoom in by this icon. We can also change the length and the height of the face plates by increasing or decreasing the numbers here. I will quickly talk about Macros, just like face plates, where we can add macro and assign it to one of the plugins settings next to macro slavery is a plus sign that we will add a macro which you can have unlimited melt off limb, like click on them to eva we'd named them or delete them. To start assigning to certain settings slept a macro, we want to click on this plus sign here and add what settings you want to control with the Macro that you have selected. We then have the offset and the value bit changes how much percent you want in a macro to have control over. 14. Mixer: Today I'll be talking about the mixer, which you can see the mix-up by clicking on this top right corner. You can see all the pan knobs, the meters that falling controls and nip lookings. We can also add modifiers here on the circles. And here are the pan knobs and the Y. We can change different modes. We can make the tracks in the mixer smaller by these icons or bigger. Again, though that we can show the meter obit fuel there. These little meters will appear at birth. We can also change to show big meters. We can hide the modifiers or hide the plugins. And the deaths icon will show the outputs. 15. Sidechain: So I chaining is a rifles to can show ortholog mix. Why basically does the compressor or the plucking root dr. volume of that track whenever he gets a signal from elsewhere. I have added a simple kick and the same. Put the compressor on the track, you want to duck. Put side chain mode on the compressor turned down a threshold and the way show down. Now for the attack and release its up to you, the curricular attack, the faster the docking rubric kin and what leaves is, how long do you want the docking to happen? And for the last part is to pick what track you want to train with. The standard compressor. Does it feel like it's too narrow to sport? Personally use a plugin called tracks. Or if they have a plucking that you'd like to use for its side chain. You can use any plucking that can do side chain. But you have to tell enough the sandbox mode off in the settings for week two work of was he can't pick what Chuck to side chain at the top of the plugin. We can also send the tracks outputs to one truck only a name that truck side chain saves us putting side chain plugins and everything. We want to do. An unassigned chain track. We can add as many compresses o side chain plugins as we want. 16. Drum Sampler & Step clips: From sampler is where we load the audio samples into pads. At the top left we have different options. A undo here, although we do here, we can know the presets or safe. We got a gain knob here, and next to that is a meter. That's quick. They load up one of their factory presets. Now you can see that the paths are changed and loaded up the samples. We can add more to the kipp, but used in a, B, C, D and adding more samples. A midi learn. And they'd load or saved pet Leo icon here. And they note we p, if we turn it on, it will be p itself when we hit one of the pads and we can control how many times have we p will happen. We also got such bourbon, reheat them made. You know, we've seen that Sony will play that audio example. We can click and track these zones or right click for options. But to the parents as we click on these samples, you can see at the top here, blue play cursors will show up every time we hit that pad. And we'll print that sample. And we can change the starting point and ending point of that sample. Click on one shot to turn into a DSR mode on. And we can change the points which will affect the sample. Clicking on these three lines here we can change the trauma icon and the color of the pad. To change the name of the sample, Click on the test. We can change the pitch, volume, pan, and philosophy sensitivity. Here, we can set up choke hoops when crude samples belonging to that cube will call each other up. When quicker. We can send any pad to its own output, two different tracks, which I will show how in a bit. And lastly, we have solo open loop controls. We can start making our own by clicking on Presets and reset to TiVo. And we click onto the pads, icons, pads. Now for trumps samplers, it's best to use step clips to query a step clip. Like before Claire can track the red plus sign here onto the track. As you can see, all the names here on the left are all those samples from the Trump sample. We can start placing steps by left clicking on these steps, we click on steps again to remove them. And now the top per se, it will allow us to change the velocity by clicking on the sample. We want to change. At the bottom here where you can see the number, click on it. And we can create a new pattern. And we can go back to the first pattern. And we got these different options here are like the ones in noise each step feature. We can also confirm that Trump sampler to multi-sample by going to actions and select a trumps sampler and press comfort to multi-sample. We can also place the jumps sampler into o any offer sampler plucking to send two different tracks. So we have more can show off every sound that were useful. To do that in the Trump sampler, we simply choose what sound you choose. For this example, let's pick a clap. Click on there, on the white side here, you'll say Stevia OUT1 is changed it to two. Now on the web, we have to play a track and click and crack the third and the fourth line to connect to the newly made track. And that SIP reimburses track must have realized being connected ones for panned left and no one's pan y. So the thirst to our track one, the second thought is full assessing track. And fifth six is four, track three, and so on. 17. 40SC: Osc is this same task. Full oscillators allows you to mottled light settings along with filters and effects at a top or the presets, as always can know, dope the default preset will say for load you'll presets be though that we can switch from oscillate as 12 to oscillate tis Fourier unfold. Now this drop-down menus choose between different wave shapes or choose none. We can change the pulse-width of square waves. Tuning by semitones. Oh boy, fine tune plus double-click to reset. We can fit in the sound by unison and boy spread and Detune. And we can control the level and the pan of each oscillator. And below we have the field test section. Here we can pick up field to type and low pass and high pass, a bandpass and the notch filter to change our sound. We have frequency less than the slope, k tracking and the flow, Mel and philosophy on the left side. And nonetheless, we have attack, decay, sustain, and release. All we change them here on the screen. And the bottom section is relation on their fix here, which controls the sound. On the right we have the different play knows I'm voices and the same level and the guard tower. We can also have the analog mode, which for salmon lay a analog scene for a SDR. And here we have distortion, coalesce, delight and we felt the effects. And to turn them on and we simply click on the box, OK. Second the name to add DNS settings. We also cut too and the flops and two LFOs to multiply on any settings and key switches as well. We can assign modulation bugs. They can the PLU icon and to any NumPy one. And we can also white thick to delete the multilayer. 18. Subtractive: Subtractive is the outstanding synth. One of the best seems SF waveform at the top-left, that folder icon will open up presets. We can search default on the preset search and double-click. And this will allow us to stop making go a preset from scratch. Click on this next icon to go back to the synth. You can quickly change presets here with these little icons. We can also look at the preset inflammation and add to that information. And we can save our own presets here. Next to that is the meat and the master again NOP. And here is the global settings. We can change the size, performance options, and so on. At the top here is the common settings which will apply to all of the oscillators. We can change a fois count, change a tuning, and change the unison settings. We have four different oscillated panels. We can change a wave shapes of the oscillator boy, this drop-down menu, and we can turn them on and off. But Palo icon sets an oscillators abdomen settings like one has ring modulation. To go in the filters, we must click on this tab here in the middle here we can also see the amp EQ and up and Detroit. On the last tab here we can see all the effects and we can use for f x at the same time. And we can choose from distortion, coerce FISA compressor, filter to lie, and we verbs. The level of the effects can be controlled within the AMP section. These are the oscillators lavish the modulation section, where we can change the settings of LFOs. Lfos A1 and B1 ought to change the pitch. So two is to change sink pits, and then pulse-width. To change his single pitch pulse-width oscillated 24. And the rest controls filter. And then Pitch Bend settings. 19. Sampler & Multi Sampler: Today I'll be talking about the multi sampler. We can start making your own instruments which samples and record inside of this sampler. To start recording, click on record and then select the system input here, that bond Neff and choose system input. And if you record anything, we can change the start and end points of the sample. And once set up, you can click on this icon to remove any unwanted ordeal. And if you open a scratch pad here top y, then save it to the scratch pad. And we named that sample to any key that you played with that instrument. I will quickly low doped by sample and show you, instead of recoding and from the scratch pad trackless sample into zones and enter the root note at the top middle here. We can click and track the sun. So when we hit that note inside this zone, you will apply our sample. And as you see at the top left is the first note of this zone, and then the net snow is that last no obvious zone. And we do this with as many different samples we want making our own instrument in their own way. Let's now go to this sound section. Here we can change the sound changes starting and ending points. I won't explain every feature here has already been talked about, but we can set up the loop mode turned on. And we can also we first the sound dispel. And there has to be seen before we can use pads as well and fun the scratch pad or research. We can track samples until the parents. As always, we click and save at the top or load presets. We also go as simple version of the Sampler where you just drag samples and click and hold on these alloys to change his zones. 20. Arpeggiator: Detail but pretty show you these media effect. So in placing their media tech, we must place it before the plugin in order to formulate what this midi effect dose a place notes I'm can change it. Changes speed up these notes here, please. Yeah, the bottom ten input fix on which allows us to change for Lassa T, motif and play modes. Here we can choose the max number of voices that true that anything could freeze that allows you to hold once you have started playing. We can also make your own patterns and you can save clear load, change the length and the quid and children nodes. 21. Chord Companion: Companion will easily play chords in the white scales. Here on the left at the top are the ones that are highlighted in these blue circles are the correct ones in that scale. And these are all different scales. Pressing the circles. Neither cold. If you've got a midi controller or we've paired so you can press them to play the court as well. At the top, we can change different key and different styles. We can also load up different pad layouts here. 22. MIDI Filter & MIDI Monitor & Note Repeater: Made the field tail will allow you to see if virtual keyboard, for less on the annual play that virtual instrument as reopen plucking can also hit this pin at the top wire where if I opened another plug-in, it will stay there instead up close and get nets is made the monitor where if we play a note, it will give us all the data like what channel and what note is played. And Rican clear that data here. Lastly, note we've Peter Rich just repeats the notes within a repeater. We can also change a mess around the pattens. And as you can see, the difference here. 23. Phaser: A phase are quite a number of deep NEP choose, and it is a modulation effect. It removes frequencies up the incoming signal and move these Nazis around. We can do to speed up the Nazis moving around with changes, speed up our code that modulate the phase shifting their effect. We can also set it to turn on ten per mode on and sync it to the B has redo this, you can see or change the speed. Depth is how deeply it's not our feedback. Let see, changed the restaurants. What do you do? 24. Compressor: A compressor, is it taught to control the Danton manic Wayne chapter audio? So what the compressor would do, it would choose the volume up to allow this part. If it goes above a certain threshold. The most common features of a compressor is that threshold, which controls the level in dB above which the signal will be. We choose. We have the output gain, which used to be called a makeup gain and over compressors, where we turn a funding backup once we have we choose the volume to the same volume has been four. And ratio author compressor that controls how much signal will be compressed. Attack controls how fast the compressor will start. Increasing their attack will also increase a transient. Useful for trumps. Release is how long it takes for the compression to stop working. And underway is side-chain already explained. Useful trick is where we either increase the knobs and the effects. Turn the up there, the effect sounds too much, then low it down until it sounds right for you. 25. Chorus: Coerce was designed to make it sound like there's two people and meant to PUR singing, it's not going to be the same and they are going to be enough time for me to cover and so on. It basically copies original sound and delayed by a certain amount of time. It is common news on guitars, pads that should pianos, bays and phone calls, the plugin monthly, lotsa delayed time. That delay time is slowly changing, getting longer and shorter. Their mouth difference is controlled by depth. Realized, he doesn't make your allies Green. He doesn't make it a lot. Can chose a quickness of modulation. Does it make you realize the width controls how far tried signal and the signal our panel. Does it make you realize green? Amount controls or overall mix up? Does it mean? 26. Pitch shifter: A pitch shifter which can change the pitch by semitones. Click on this pits, which will give you a troponin knew of shortcuts. Here our dividend play modes, which affects of quality of the audio, has really changed the pitch. And here are some settings. 27. Delay: Today I'll be talking about delay, waveform delays mano, which means if you have Amanda sound, it will stay Mano. But God this a delay we pieces sound after the original sound is made, this quakes it echo of the original sound. We can change how long goes shoulder delays go into Pig. We can sync that tempo so that delay stays in tempo. Yeah, we feed back the more DP or increase the chances of the sound is being delayed will increase. If you increase to the math. So you would last forever. And mixed note for the mode, the mode of the delay effect. Less read, more of a toy signal. 28. Reverb: A refurbished when the sound hits and the hard surface. And we expect this new book lock-in effect, we can change the width upsized, which makes it seems like a smallest space or bigger. Haida damping grilled remove some high frequencies in the wafer. We got Troy and veteran up here. And lastly we've reverb. He adds stereo, bought this written up here, which makes us sound seem loader. If we love a all the way down, it will be Monod. 29. 4 Band Equaliser: Eq is where we can either add or remove certain frequencies. They do this because to either remove unwanted frequencies in our sung or boost frequencies, quite tip is to boost that custom frequencies and the ones that's off-putting level again and pipe pass that e cube by white, clicking a plug in here and disable it and see if it made any good changes. Okay, so first of all, this is a four band dequeues. So there are four bands to use. We can click and track these points to either move or frequency or gain or lower the dB. Click and track these red circles to change his shape after bend. We got the controlled nops below. We can also select a band here. And also clearly settings here, although the presets are at the top.
