CTA Classroom: Defining Auxes, Groups, VCAs & Matrixes Pt. 2 — ChurchTechArts

Without getting super-technical, think of a VCA as a remote control for your fader. That might not seem very useful at first, considering you already have the fader right there. Where it gets fun is that you can assign multiple channels to a VCA, and you can assign a channel to multiple VCAs. More on that later. Here’s how a VCA works (at least functionally—look it up if you want to know how they work electrically): Let’s say you have your lead vocal—channel 1—assigned to VCA 1.

Later we’ll talk about why this is useful, but for now, that’s how they work. CTA Classroom: Using Auxes, Groups, VCAs & Matrixes Pt. 3 — ChurchTechArts. Think of each row of aux controls as another row of faders, but instead of moving up and and down, they rotate.

By adjusting the levels of each of your channels in an aux mix, you build that mix for a monitor. At least that’s one use. CTA Classroom: Using Auxes, Groups, VCAs & Matrixes Pt. 4 — ChurchTechArts. I’ve also created a single band VCA in the past that controlled all instrument and vocal inputs.

I didn’t use it for mixing, but for taking the entire band out in one button press (on that desk, a VCA mute muted all the channels, including monitors). I still had my individual VCAs as well, and I did some mixing on them. Any time you want to control a group of inputs as a whole, a VCA is a great way to go. Drums are a perfect example because once you get the various drum mic's dialed in and sounding like a kit, you typically want to raise and lower the level of the drums, not the toms and hat (well sometimes you do…).

The VCA will maintain the relative mix balance between the channels but give you “master” volume control over all of them. Background vocals are similar. Using the Matrix For a novice sound engineer, a matrix mix can be really confusing. I knew that. As I mentioned in the descriptive post on the matrix, modern digital consoles have blurred the definition of a matrix. {{translationsGeneral.htmlTitle[language]}} Oxium. Performance synthesizer !

Ableton multiple looper trick (live looping) with Kill Paris. Mixing Multitracked Drums. Technique : Recording / Mixing With drum machines and samplers becoming increasingly prominent in music production, mixing real drums is becoming something of a lost art.

Mixing Multitracked Drums

Paul White explains the basics of this important mixing skill, and shares some secrets on how to get the best drum sound. In the world of synths and samplers, we take acoustic separation for granted, but when it comes to mixing acoustic drums, things are very different because of the usual way in which a drum kit is miked up. Normally pop productions use close mics for each drum, a pair of overheads to capture the overall kit sound and room ambience in stereo, and often a separate hi-hat mic.
