This is a QUESTION, but I'm asking for tips and tricks, so I hope this is the correct place. Also I'm talking about Android here, obviously on Mac and Windows there's tons of DAWs and other tools to do this
I'm wondering what you guys do as a work-around when creating drum sounds (or for that matter any sample) when it comes to timbre (EQ, filtering)
I often open a drum kit in Beatbox and think to myself "Man I wish I could cut some of the lower frequencies off that snare". Sometimes I want to find the frequency of the transient part of a kick drum and boost it (as I would when mixing live drums) using a parametric EQ and sweeping around till I find it.
The problem is that all the sample slots on the Beatbox or PCM synth go to the same output, same EQ/effects. The audio editor however doesn't have any features for EQ (or does it and I just didn't see them? that happens sometimes).
Obviously you can use multiple instances of Beatbox, one for each drum, but that would soon fill up all the machine slots and would be a nightmare to sequence (aside from trying to use Modular to do it maybe). But I suppose you could dial in sounds this way in a song file just for getting sounds, export that, then fly those in to the "real" song and load the samples...other way is to simply use another app to do it like Audio Evolution or something.
One thing I like about G-Stomper is that you can individually adjust filter for each sample as well as load more than 8, but it STILL doesn't have mute groups, WHUUUT?!
Anyway, what do you guys use for editing samples (whether it's for EQing or for other types of processing)? What are some workarounds for doing it entirely in Caustic?
