Artificial Double Tracking So, i'm sure this can help someone on these forums especially since i know alot of you probably have recorded on a time limit, worked with sloppy guitarist or maybe just wanted a rough sketch idea layed out, etc. So here it goes. 1) First what you want to do is set up 2 tracks (A and B) 2) record your sorce material guitar, synths, pads, strings whatever. 3) once you've recorded your source material put it on Track A and Hard-pan this right 4)copy your source material and paste it in Track B Hard-pan Track B left. NO, YOU'RE NOT DONE YET if you were to leave this as is you would have phase problems and many unhappy audiophiles. 5) drop a Delay plugin on Track B 6) if your delay acts like a ping pong delay then link the R and L channels 7) set the Delay to 100% wet 8) if you have the delay BPM syncd then unsync the delay so its no longer following you're tempo 9) Now set the speed of the delay between 12-30 MS 10) you should now hear your source material thick as if you had double tracked 11) I've never had phase problems but i make it a habit to check just in case so there it is... but remember nothing can ever replace a good musician who knows his way around his instrument. but you can use this for experimentation on/or for some guitar/soundscapes/synths/background noises etc. Hard panning is not necessery i just used this in the example maybe pan an artificial double tracked highpassed tb-303 playing an acid line at 10 o clock on one channel and 2 on the other. i Hope i have contributed something useful.
