In blueninjastar's awesome article on mixing and multitracking he shows several graphs with the overlays of each track. does anyone know of a plug in that will actually show this overlay in realtime as you record and playback?

I use Sonar 6.x

Thanks, Allen

Mcfly, you wont be able to do anything that appears like he had. That was a compilation graph he made to show what it would be like.

You can however in Sonar 6 use an analyzer which will give you the results for each track you use it on. I do this frequently here using several different ones.

Simply select the track you want to start with then right click in the track. This will bring up a context menu, choose insert effect, then Audio Effects, then Cakewalk and finally Analyst.

This will bring up the pluggin analyzer that will show you were you are in the EQ range with that track. Click the Max button to make it lock a line as to the peak you are hitting and you will see a red line that shows you were you are in the EQ spectrum. Remember that and move on to the next track. Preferably one that is competing with that track. Do the same thing, you can have multiple meters open at once to compare them with each other.

It is a long process but does pay off in the end.
