Echo question
 
I've been messing around with the echo more and ran into a problem.

I have two echos set up on an instrument, the first for general delay on the instrument. It's set on normal mode with 50% dry wet output and no ducking.

The 2nd is used for modulation set on roll mode, it's set at 100% dry wet with full ducking. Whenever I activate the roll mode, it decreases the volume of the instrument. I'd like to achieve this effect without decreasing volume.

I have the drive set all the way up on both echos.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Without seeing what you have done it is a bit hard to answer.

If it is something endemic to the nature of the unit (or physics) then you could also have two chains; one for the normal sound and the other for the Roll sound and use the cool Morphin Crossfader RE to handle the transition. This adds another layer (which in Combi you can program out) but allows you to tune volumes and other changes with other units like Pulverisers.

I hope that helps some.

You could put a compressor or maximiser after your roll echo and automate the bypass/on or input (or output) gain so that it triggers when you trigger the roll to increase the gain to compensate for the drop in volume. You could probably combinate the whole set-up and automate the gain increase to a button or rotary on the combinator for easier automation/triggering.

Yeah, this is what I ended up doing. I just feel like it's the cheap way to do it. I'd like to learn how to use more mergers and splitters, but haven't really gotten around to it yet.
