I get a little confused with the purpose of each output filter. For those who use all 8 outputs, what do you all use 1/2, 3/4, and 5/6 filters for?
Atm I’m using kicks and bass on 1/2, and samples of instruments on 7/8. I wonder i should be doing samples on 1/2 where pitch down alisiang is used and kicks, bass, low end stuff on either 3/4 or 5/6 as they seem to be more closed. Interested to hear how others have it setup.
For me it’s outputs 1-2 for percussion, the envelope adds a bit of character on single hits or at the start of a break. The rest for resampled 33@45 pitched down, because it cuts off the harsher aliasing frequencies. From there you can experiment which outputs deal with the frequency range of your sample.
Yo, I map it like the frequency spectrum starting with the bottom end. So kick & bass on 1&2. Then midrange elements, up to hats on 7&8, that I don’t think have a filter stage.
I wasn’t able to use the 1&2 filters on my latest track, it was too much bottom end, so it’s not essential to use on all productions. But when they work, they add weight & I’m really glad of the tonality as an option.
