[ddots-l] Re: Buss effects & track outputs

is it a common practice to set a tracks output column to "none" and its send to 0.0 db if all you want to hear is the signal with the effect on the buss fully applied to the signal (at whatever level the effect is set at on the buss of course). Where I get a little confused is at the point where the track, in addition to sending to the buss, also has its output field set to "master". In that case, I'm wondering how much of the buss processed signal is present in the master output in relation to the track signal (that was routed directly to master). I would think it would be 50% of buss signal, and 50% of track output signal. And, more to the point, I wonder what would be the aggrigate signal level at master output.


If it is "split" at the track send, and then recombined at the master output, wouldn't the signal level be effectively doubled? These are my questions--I guess my limited understanding of signal flow is at the heart of my problem here. Any insight into that would be a help.

i'd say the track and bus volume are summed. the wet dry realition will depend on the plug in settings.
anyway with ct you can check out the output meters.

Subject: [ddots-l] Buss effects & track outputs


I have a basic question concerning sending audio to a buss.

If a buss sends level in a track is set to 0.0 db, and the track and buss both have their output set to master, then, what is the output of the master buss? That is, is the audio "split" between the buss & track, then summed at the master output? I'm having trouble understanding how the level of the master output will be affected.

If there is a reverb effect on the buss, but no effects on the track, and the buss send is at 0.0 db, will the resulting master output have 50% wet and 50% dry signal? will the summed level from both the track & buss be greater than the origional track level?

If so, how does one compensate for the increase in level? I hope my questions are clear. I'm just now beginning to work with effects and busses, so please taylor your answer to a complete newby on the topic.
