Reverb Spillover When Changing Snapshots
andymccraw posted a topic in HelixSo there's a weird behavior that I noticed when I'm working with a snapshot that's aimed at creating a lush, ambient, swell-type of sound. When I switch to or from that particular snapshot it works perfectly, UNLESS, I've changed the MIX settings on the effect. So if Snapshot A is my ambient swells snapshot and I have the mix cranked up on the Glitz reverb, if I switch between that and another snapshot (or if I switch back to Snapshot A) I get this weird "surge" in sound that has a very abrupt beginning and then the natural decay. Example: (silence) --> step on Snapshot A (ambient swells) --> expected behavior --> step on another snapshot --> expected behavior --> step on Snapshot A --> (don't touch my guitar) weird audio surge The way around this has been to have to use a dedicated block to a swell reverb and leave the mix static between all snapshots, which is frustrating b/c I tend to fill up my blocks with effects and need all the space I can get. Why can't I simply use a single reverb effect and have the mix change per snapshot without causing this unusable situation. Why "unusable" you ask? Because typically when I'm doing these types of ambient swells it's during a very quiet portion of the music and this surge/spillover sticks out like a sore thumb and sounds terrible. Imagine it's nearly silent on stage and the effect you're hoping for is a subtle volume swell...nope, you get this brash, full volume dump of the effect. Anyone got a good idea of how to avoid this?
Swells - Pod UX1
veecharlie posted a topic in POD Farm / POD Studio / TonePortâ€‹Hello everybody! I'm new here and new with my UX1. I'm so far very happy with it. I have been searching swells packs for worship, but it seems the UX1 doesn't have that.. Am I right? No such/similar effects? I would appreciate if anybody with experience with this stuff would link me to some patches or addons or anything that could help me out, thank you in advance! veecharlie.
fade or swell distortion inIs there a way to fade in your distortion? For example when moving from a clean verse to a heavy chorus? If you can't do that with the hd500x, what is the best way to do it with post production? Thanks!
Exp Pedal affecting the toneHi guys! So far, I have no problems with my POD HD500X and I actually found my desired tone.. but I only noticed that as I lower the volume through my expression pedal, the gain seems to decrease too. Is that normal? I just don't find it hurting the tone especially when doing swells. Is there any way to fix it? I hope you could help, guys. TIA!
