Hi, again. Seeing as yesterday’s post about tape pop delivered an instant solution, I thought I’d try to disentangle another mystery that has caused a lot of teeth gnashing.
Is it possible to manipulate FX whilst recording to tape?
Say I want to play a simple synth melody on one hand during recording. With my free hand, I’d like to slowly apply an FX such as CWO to add some variation, sonic weirdness. I’ve not figured out if this is possible and it has been frustrating trying.
Alternatively, is it possible to record a synth melody to tape, then manipulate that track on the tape with FX and record the manipulation?
So far, the best effects I can muster are when in FX mode and twiddling the encoders live. The moment I want to manipulate and record the encoders whilst recording to tape, it just seems to fall apart.
Thinking about this principle, I’d also be interested to know whether the encoders and manipulating them can be recorded whilst tweeking a synth sound. For example, say I go into D-Synth, pick a sound, find that turning the green encoder whilst exploring the tone adds a nice transitional sonic effect to the sound of the synth. Can this manipulation be captured as a track recording?
Thanks in advance.
