Some intermediate questions related to post-processing
So I'm at the point where I can record from my audio interfaces and from Hydrogen, jack those into jack-rack to do some real-time LADSPA effects (er... just realized Ardour has this built into the mixer, doh), and move things around in Ardour. All that pretty much works flawlessly (now that jackd is running in realtime mode). I have a few questions...
Ok, so I've recorded a bunch of audio. Aside from cutting/deleting sections of tracks and repeating them, it doesn't seem like there's much in the way of audio editing (despite the blurb on the website).
I don't have a VST-enabled build of Ardour, is this the way to go for editing? Or is there some way to say record a track in Ardour, then pipe it thru an effects program using jack (like jack-rack), and then back into Ardour. I'm not real hung up on the effects, just want to be able to add a little reverb or compression after the fact.
Ok, in the process of writing this email and making sure I had my **** together I found out I could jack one track into another track, put a LAPSDA plugin effect on that new track, and then record onto it. This achieves what I want but seems clunky.. and what's this Send effect thing?
Anyways, I'm not completely lost but any pointers would really be appreciated.
