First off, thanks to James for helping me solve this problem.
The scenerio: I wanted to have a beat in which my hi hats could have a differentshuffle setting than the other tracks in my beatbox.
Solution: open a seperate beatbox window,program my hi hats in that beatbox and adjust shuffle to taste.
Works great but the problem i ran into was that because my hihats where in a totally different window i was unable to set them in a mute group and they were not sounding as tight as i wanted them to. I tried adding a compressor but was unhappy with the results.
My solution was to create what i m calling a ghost track for lack of a better term. What i did is create a new track,my ghost track, in i placed a note right before and right aftereach of my hi hat notes.i then turned the volume on my ghost track to zero and grouped my hi hat and ghost track together in a mute group. This in effect, created an attack and decay gate around my hi hats making them sound tighter and fit into my overall mix cleanly. You can also play around with how close or far you place your ghost notes to the live notes you want to hear to adjust the gate time.
Hope that made sense.
Yeah makes sense, does it work on other noises as well as hats?
Yeah, should work on anything.
