Audio Cd Effects Tutorial

Question

This may have been addressed before, but the search engine didn't turn up anything. Is there anywhere one may be able to find some sort of tutorial on how each of the 18 audio effects settings work and how they affect the audio file? Obviously some are pretty straightforward (ie Graphic Equalizer, Pitch) but the rest either need a degree in sound design or something written down to help the user understand their use and effect. Thanks.

Nope, no dice. There are some very helpful tutorials there, but nothing seems to address the complexities of the 18 audio effects filters.

 

Sorry that did not help you. I dont have a Mac, but in the Windows Roxio Sound Editor in the Help for the editor is this:

Does you Mac Roxio program have anything similar?.

You might try Googling by the name of the audio unit. Here is one page I found when searching for aunetsend. Toast is using Apple's audio units and can also access some third party units. For example, my list in Toast includes a SoundSoap and a Freeverb effect that are housed in the root>Library>Audio>Plugins>Components folder. However, some others that are there are not seen by Toast. You can apply as many as three different effects to a single track (which is what the 1, 2 and 3 boxes are for).

Thanks tsantee! I took your advice and found this in a GarageBand tutorial as well, so in case anyone else had the same giant ? flashing in neon over their heads, this may help.

 

GarageBand Tutorial: Built-in Audio Units Effects

 

In the long run, I have surmised that, unless you have some crazy-go-nuts stuff you want to pull off, the only generally useful audio unit effect is the Graphic EQ.

 

Oh, and another thing to those new to the Toast Titanium app, to access the "Gain" controls to adjust the track volume in Audio CDs (so familiar to those of us who used Jam) you must go into Preferences, click on Audio/Video tab, go to the bottom of the Audio section and click the "Show advanced audio mastering settings" button. This will turn on your Gain column.

Am I missing something or does the Toast manual not even address the Preferences window?

The manual for Jam was wonderful. Toast manuals (after version 5) have been called Getting Started Guides. At times I've thought of writing an unofficial Toast blog that fills in those missing pieces. Maybe when the next version comes out....
