Just a quickie question...
After doing real-world hardware recording for twenty years - buttons, knobs, displays and ENDLESS CABLING, space restrictions meant I have had to reluctantly to sell of pretty much all my synths and recording kit, so now I am investigating the PC-based software side of recording. Unfortunately, I am somewhat of an idiot when it comes to software stuff, so I am finding my feet.
On a limited budget, my setup is the CS-80V2 software synth controlled by a midi controller keyboard, an m-audio delta sound card that I simply cannot get my brain to understand fully, and my new virtual multi-track will be Audacity (yeah, funds are pretty tight).
However, one thing I'm missing is live effects to add to each track (I don't want to add effects after the track is recorded, as I want to hear the effect as I perform each track so I can tweak it as I go). Although I haven't got a clue, I'm guessing I'll need some software solution that will sit between the CS-80V2 and Audacity...but that is as far as my knowledge goes. I'm pretty sure Audacity doesn't support live effects, and the synth software only offers chorus and delay.
Can anyone suggest a good software solution - if Arturia do one I'll check it out, but I can't see anything on the site. If not Arturia, something freeware if such a thing exists, or cheap as possible. I just really want to be able to add reverbs, flanges, phasers and other basic effects. After selling my SE-50 effects unit, I can't go back to dry recording! I've hunted around the interwes, but have come up dry.
If anyone can help me out it would be much appreciated
