77 - Px - Gimmix

The effects in this Bank should in general be used 100 percent ‘wet’, as they incorporate their own mixing.

#7710 Backwards

This is like the popular H3000 effect, only it’s matrixed to stay in true stereo and is more controllable. Breaks the input up into little pieces, and then plays each of them backwards. Try it on voice, mixed music and on solo instruments like violin. Switchable in, stereo out.

#7711 Can’t Carry Tune

Play a song into it: whenever the soloist takes a breath, the whole thing changes key. Funniest on well-known songs or if you record the boss singing. Press Tune and adjust the slider to pick out the melody. Then adjust <Key Mangle> for any setting from ‘Slight’ to ‘Yike!’ If you pick ‘Tin Ear’, it’ll shift the melody in exact half-steps. This program looks for the rhythm, and applies pitch shifts to the whole band in time with the music. Stereo in, stereo out.

#7714 Plug Puller Pro

Make CDs and DATs slow down, stop, and run up to speed again on cue. Add Grease to make the ‘turntable’ run longer after you pull the plug. This is similar to the DSP4000 version, but sounds better and is more controllable. Stereo in, stereo out.

#7715 Round & Round

This autopanner uses volume and delay effect to rock stereo or mono signals from side to side. Mono inputs and tight stereo vocals can handle more of the delay effect (Precedence) without obvious flanging - you might have to use more Level effect on stereo inputs. Stereo in, stereo out.

#7716 Solo Zapper Pro

This enhanced version of the DSP4000’s Solo Zapper lets you automatically fade the soloist, add reverb, or even redo a mix. The karaoke kids will love it. Adjust locate for minimum soloist, then slowly raise <Solo Bottom> to preserve bass. Width restores stereo (but is mono compatible). Use Instant to switch soloists in or out without changing the stereo image. Adjust Amount to control how much soloist appears in the mix. The algorithm expects the solo to be centered in the stereo field and occupy the mid-band. Live and acoustic recordings won’t zap very well, but most studio pop songs will. If the original mix includes a stereo echo, some of it might remain - but this echo is usually covered by the new vocal or song parody lyrics you add. Add extra reverb to help hide these ghosts. The program won’t work correctly unless the input channels are balanced. Make sure the pan or balance pots on your board are adjusted, and check the Level screen to make sure both channels match. Some original mixes may develop an artificial bass - if this happens, lower <Solo Bottom>. Stereo in, stereo out.
