Whats your personal send FX template

I just wateched this long d ramirez masterclass where he talked about setting up a send FX template. I have never done this at all before and it seems like it will really help allot.

His included a couple of delays, and reverbs.

How about you?

Also, if you dont mind please tell me when and why one should use pre fader send FX?


thanks!

Same, 1/4. 1/8. 1/16 delays, a superhall reverb, and a room reverb.

Re: Whats your personal send FX template

I have a reaktor fx preset chain of essentially every type of effect and and a step sequencer and/or the sliders and I place that over beats etc and sequence filters distortions, reverbs, and delays and its so easy to match the tempo and have different effects for each hit etc.

Took forever to set up perfect but was well worthwhile, and most templates probably would be so complex (btw there is plenty of great even free software for making the set up I described probably much easier, I just lim building tools with what I have already)

Try designing templates for certain functions like this that may improve your work flow and even creative flow!

Re: Whats your personal send FX template

it always changes. mostly it's reverb, but sometimes i'll experiment and add other odd things on a send bus

Long and short verbs. And a send return with in/outs routed for my delay pedal.

Re: Whats your personal send FX template

I don't like overprocess with a lot of effects my sounds, in very punctual cases I have used some delay and a very little of bitcruser.

For the voices I like very much use a large delay with a vocoder, and automatizing the time of the delay gives a very good result.

One thing that I don't like is to use two reverbs in the same track, much better is use a delay.

Less is more

I never use templates, pretty much just use different plugs every time.

Re: Whats your personal send FX template

I have a few in my template

- Very short room reverb, which almost all tracks get
- medium short reverb, used on some tracks for space
- long reverb - used for special effects
- short quarter delay
- long dub delay, used for special effects
- an exciter
- NYC comp
- a set of loopers, i use a lot of guitar in my productions so this is more for working out the layered parts and messing around, its quicker then recording clips all the time.

I also have sends set up in my drum rack track. i have some routed through to my normal sends and i have a gated verb, another NY comp and an un synced short delay i some times use on hats.

I have a fairly detailed template that i update after most tracks, with the new stuff that i learned/made from the previous track, it help me get through the main composition stage with out have to worry to much about sound design, which i like to do after the main composition before i start arranging.

Re: Whats your personal send FX template

How do you all tend to eq your send reverb and delays? Do you cut the lows or the lows and highs?

Re: Whats your personal send FX template

I have a high pass set to about 400hz on all my verbs and delays and a high shelf set to about -3db at about 8k on my two main verbs. then i do some more eq adjustments when mixing, like making cuts in the 1k-5k to help make room for leads and vocals
