I have a piece of music with different layers on different audio tracks. Depending on the parameter value, some layers should be activated with a smooth fade in or deactivated with a smooth fade out. The whole music should be looped.
- Using AHDSR modulation on the volume of the individual audio tracks doesn’t work, as it will retrigger the fade in on every loop cycle
AHDSR modulation will trigger each loop if your instruments are synchronous, but if you toggle them to asynchronous it will only trigger when the playback position enters or leaves the instrument trigger region.
I’m not quite sure what you mean with the seek speed of the parameter. Of course I can set a seek speed for the whole parameter within the parameter settings, but wouldn’t that have an impact on the whole parameter behavior? Like transitions and so on? Won’t they be delayed too?
Yes, applying seek speed to a parameter affects the final value of that parameter, and so indirectly affects everything whose behavior depends on the value of that parameter.
If you want only some of the things in an event to be controlled by a particular parameter’s value, you should use that parameter to control only those things, and use different parameters to control all other things. In the context of the event you described, if you want to use a parameter with seek speed to automate the volume of specific instruments to ensure they fade in and out smoothly, use a different parameter as a trigger condition for your instruments and transitions.
