not quite sure but boys noize uses a lot of effectrix so you should definately check out the vst by sugar bytes.

id like to preface this post with an apology for the huge picture. i just think itll help with the understanding of the question

so im doing a remix for someone in ableton. i have all the vocals routed to one return bus, with the option "sends only" selected on each track. after each vocal track is routed to return bus A, i want to route it to an eq track. with maybe some other effects on it so i can control all vocals as a whole on one track, instead of having to keep them synced repeatedly with effects and stuff.
separately, id like to also route each track to an un-eq'd reverb/delay track, sidechained by the the return/delay bus A, so the reverb/delay doesnt muddy up the rest of the vocals.

but ableton isnt letting me route return bus audio to other return buses. how do i fix this?

edit: ah nevermind, got it to work. i left the image file there if you guys wanted to see it though, just took off the code to display it

what are you guys doing as far as song compostion structure?

right now I'm experimenting with creating a template so that when I feel the inspiration coming all I have to worry about is getting the music down and not setting it all up

right now I'm laying them down in groups. so i can keep track of what i need as far as frequency, reverb and stereo field

Vocals 1
Vocals 2

Drum Rack:
Drum Kick
Drum HiHat
Drum HiHat
Drum Snare
Drum Snare
Percussion

Synth Hi
Synth Lo

Audio Effects
Audio Effects

and then anything else i want. i have return tracks set up with the utility plugin in invert mode so i can send my effects without affecting track volume and all my bus tracks pre EQ with settings I found to be helpful that i tweak if they need to be

I would love to hear what you guys have come up with after some trial and error

does anyone have any tips on making epic synth sweeps right before the drop in a track? i was wondering if anyone uses samples or an actual synth patch.

i usually use a synth patch and just use automation and eqing to get the feel right. never really thought about using samples for that, other than vocals

and robotech, i always start from scratch on every track i do. i think it helps the songs sound like actual different songs. when i do something like what you have set up i usually fall into a routine kinda thing, and all my songs become extremely similar and static
but whatever works for you, and whatever sounds best. doesnt matter how you get there. if your songs sounds good, they sound good

that's a good point when i start from scratch it does make things differ, but i find that i get stuck easier if i don't have some structure to work with...

i like to use a combo of a high pass filter and reverb. i just automate the frequency on the highpass and the wet level on the reverb it gives it this feeling that the sound is coming towards you and then the highpass gives a feeling of coming up from the track it sounds good...
