View Full Version : Separating a sound from an effect

Let's say I channel an instrument to 17. I put a reverb on 17 in the mixer. What if I only want the output of the reverb, and not the original sound? Is there a way to channel the instrument to, say 18, and the effect return to, say 19?

Put the reverb on 100% wet and 0% dry ratio.

Awesome. This works great, for reverb. But what about any other effect? Am I limited to only those that provide Wet and Dry knobs?

pretty much afaik. there might be some kind of clever workaround using phase cancelling, you could try inverting the dry signal and adding it to the dry+wet signal but dont count on it working...
some effects just dont make SENSE to just isolate the "effect" sound (e.g. distortion plugins). This only makes sense for effects that ADD sound, so that's reverb, chorus, etc.
