im running sonar, i have all plugins included w/ sound forge, waves 4, and wavelab as well
looking for some insight into getting a really stereo vocal and whats behind it. i can create one by duplicating a track and panning each one to either side but i remember their being plugins that can do this w/out making 2 tracks?
this seems to be a key thing in a big sounding vocal

Mar 14, 2006 12:53 pm i like the FX delay, and start with the preset called "outward"....set it up on an aux buss and you'll need to keep it real quiet and subtle, that combined with reverb (aux buss aswell) will sink your tracks right into the mix. and don't get too carried away with lots of layers for "big" vocals....compression settings will give you that 'in your face' -ness.
Mar 14, 2006 01:24 pm explain a bit about the aux buss/ mastering in sonar...iv heard ppl dont normally do it but i dont know how to do it any other way
right now all i do is right click on the right side of the track to add a plugine & turn them on and off w/ the green light
Mar 14, 2006 01:27 pm Look in the Sonar manual, it explains it...I using bussing to group tracks all the time...if any instrument is double or triple tracked I group them in busses...if you are adding plugins as you describe you are bussing, that is an effects loops right there.
Mar 14, 2006 01:32 pm go to your mixer view, you'll see three "sections" of faders, the far left is your normal channel strip, in the middle are your busses, and the far right is your physical outputs.
i set up a buss and call it master, all of my tracks go through this last 'bottle neck' fader before gooin' out my soundcard. this allows me to add eq or multiband compression over the whole mix. you can route your channels at the very bottom of the strip (under the fader).
then i right click on the middle group of faders in mixer and create a few aux busses, i like to run my reverbs, delays, and other effects here. all ya gotta do to route these is create a send in your tracks and you can buss audio all over the place. the idea is to layer the effects on top of the tracks, instead of running the tracks through the FX, this will help maintain signal integrity. and gives you power to eq the reverb seperately from the orginal track, ect. is veddy good deal.

I dont know which version you have so I wont try and explain as it is a tiny bit differant through a couple of the version changes. Not much but enough to make a little differance.
