Chapter 11. Exploring Effects

Chapter 11. Exploring Effects

Just as adding spices to a recipe makes it taste better, adding effects to your music data makes it sound better. Effects can make the difference between a dull, lifeless recording and a recording that really rocks. For example, you can apply echoes and background ambience to give the illusion that your song was recorded in a certain environment, such as a concert hall. You also can use effects to make your vocals sound rich and full. And the list goes on…. SONAR provides a number of different Effects features that you can use to spice up both your MIDI and audio tracks. Although applying these effects to your data isn’t overly complicated, understanding what they do and how to use them can sometimes be confusing. This chapter will do the following:

  • Explain plug-ins

  • Discuss offline and real-time processing

  • Introduce audio effects, including chorus, equalization, reverb, delay, flanging, pitch shifting, time/pitch stretching, and more

  • Introduce MIDI effects, including quantization, delay, filtering, arpeggio, chord analyzing, transposition, and velocity

  • Discuss the Session Drummer
