Plugin suggestions? Technical questions
I am looking for some plugins that will work with OS X (10.6). I don't know how to find what I'm looking for because I don't know the names for some of them.
1. I'm looking for something like a gate or compressor (but I think it might be called something else, or I just don't know how to use a compressor). One example of how I want to use it is to get the sound of a snare, but have the attack (or release?) set so that much of the initial "pop" of the snare does not get passed along. I want it to NOT catch transients - in other words - but pass most of the sound after a transient along. Does someone know how this is done?
2. Does anyone know of a good vocoder that I could get working on OS X? I'm going to try VoCodeX, but if someone's got experience do tell!
3. Another one I don't know the precise name of, nor do I know exactly how it would be implemented with Ardour/Jack. I'm looking for an envelope follower type of plugin that can pull an envelope wave form from a signal, and then I want to control parameters in Ardour or other plugins with that. Is this possible in A2? A3 with MIDI?
