square oscillator for volume?
I've been using Ardour off and on for a while, but have started to
get more serious with it recently. (Thanks for the fantastic DAW!)
I am having some trouble with a few things I hope someone can help
out with. The first challenge is that I have a clip that I'm trying to
have come in and cut out (volume) going along with a square oscillator.
In other words I want the full volume for a bit, then cut all the way out
a couple times a second.
I'm sure there is an easy way to do this, but because I'm not sure what
technical term that might be it's limiting my ability to even search the forums.
What I THINK I want is are options to choose the type
of wave I want (square, sine, saw), the frequency (in sec or ms), strength to
apply (dry/wet?), and what to apply it to (volume).
I tried picking some plugins from the oscillators category, but that leads
to another challenge... None of the plugins (2 channel) I tried give me what I
am looking for... and some of the plugins didn't have any controls at all!
So, now I'm also curious as to if there is a place/page which lists all the
LV2/LADSPA plugs available for Ardour, and what they are good for, and/or
how to use them. For example the "Wave Terrain Oscillator" seems to cut
the volume of my left channel EXTREMELY low.. but doesn't seem to do
anything else, and doesn't have any controls in the plugin window,
so what's it good for? Obviously I just don't know how to use it, but where
do I go to find out how/when to use all these?
As for the square oscillation.... I COULD open the Fader automation, and
manually set marks for full volume and 0 volume, but I've not seen a way to
copy/paste automation marks, and doing it manually 3 times a second over
a 10 second clip just seems obnoxious.
Thanks for any help! .. on either or both questions!
