So I just bought Equivocate this morning, thanks to ColdRoomStudio mentioning it, which reminded me I wanted it anyway
So I supposedly have figured out how to sidechain into it to use the match feature
I put on one of my songs, then I sidechain John Bonham or Lee Kerslake into it and it shows me a curve to match them.
So far so good.
But how can I work with it in REAL TIME???
In other words i want to be looking at the Equivocate match curve WHILE adjusting a different EQ plug until I get it to match
I tried it while using ez drummer and of course EZ Drummer creates the sound on the fly so i assumed that why i couldnt just adjust an EQ plug in my drum folder to match the Equivocate curve
So then I rendered my drums into a wav file and was hoping I could look at Equivocates curve and use an EQ plug to match it but alas I cant get that to work.
Then i tried to get fancy by sending my drums to a folder and eq’ing that folder, then sending that folder to another folder with Equivocate in it but Equivocate is smarter than me and still didnt work in real time
Has it got to do with prefader this or that?? (edit: I sent my rendered audio to a folder with Equivocate in it. I tried all 3 different types of sends in reaper but they didnt make any difference lol)
It would be 99% more useful if I can figure out how to match the curve IN REAL TIME.
i mean, technically, where is Equivocate picking up the audio from. I dont understand why if I have it in a separate folder and I eq before i send to that folder, why it doesnt affect what Equivocate sees. i deffo dont understand routing throughout a daw
Well i assume you HAVE to use side chain…as that is the reference.
I was hoping to be able to just take ReaEQ and manually ride it until I more or less matched equivocates curve while it was running. In other words if it added 5 db at 1k then i would add 5db at 1k to the track in question and equivocate would then see that and avg on down to 0 etc.
I couldnt get anything remotely like that to work though I tried 4 or 5 different ways
nah, a reverb and an eq curve are two completely different things. A reverb is like,what, 50x as complex as a simple eq?? The important part of a MATCHING EQ is the MATCHING aspect. After that its just a simple EQ
My understanding is that there are also latency issues as well.
What I mean is you cant get compression on a waves api then move the setting to a fab filter c .
The eq match can only be done within equivocate ,as I said you could possible copy the curve with waves q clone
