Audio Fx

Is there a way of applying an audio fx on a clip without affecting the entire track, similar to what can be done with video fx. Thanks

apply to the CLIP only-highlight the clip, right click, goto 'non realtime FX' pick the one you want save as and your done.

Don's answer is the most sensible in most situations, but you could also consider creating a separate audio track for the clip(s) you want the effect for - that way you can tweak in real time rather than having to apply/listen/undo if you don't like how the clip sounds in the mix.

Remember also that you can keyframe audio fx, so you could add a 'hold' keyframe containing 'reset to none' values at the end of the preceding clip, followed immediately by a keyframe that contains your effect values, followed by a keyframe that contains 'reset to none' values at the end of the clip. That way you keep all the clips on the same audio track. Many audio fx parameters can also have envelopes applied, which gives you a further choice.

Just a couple of alternatives for different situations (which is one of the things I love most about Vegas). Don's method is certainly the most straightforward, though.

Just to add to what Ian said, most times I DO run a seperate track for each audio piece then run a bus for each track and depending on the FX I need, I run it in the bus before it reaches the master bus.
The beauty of Vegas, so many ways to do so many things. :-)

Since the "Mixer" had come about in Vegas, I have been far more creative with the use of Audio. Yes, we had versions of this, but having those vertically sliders and ALL the options set in one place is a total dream. I now have a Sound-Desk Windows Layout set aside just for the purposes of doing Audio Mix and Control.

I can now have a music bed TRACK: an SFx TRACK/BUS; a Foley TRACK; a V/O TRACK; additional audio fill TRACK . . etc etc and all mixable allowing me to reach a new level of creativity and quality.

I had a Band come and see what I was doing, using this Mixer, as part of the final workflow send to DVDA for their DVD I produced. They were mightily impressed.

We are really fortunate that Vegas stemmed from an audio background.

Grazie

Ditto, Grazie.

I came from an audio background and the simple reason I chose Vegas over the others was at the time (v3 I think) Vegas looked and acted more like my DAW (Cakewalk Pro Audio/Sonar) than any of the others. I 'got' Vegas straight off the bat (well, sort of) because of that.

Old habits die hard, though, and I still go out to Sonar on occasions, usually for anything that's a little more complicated than your 'average' audio (whatever that is!). That's on the decline, though, and I haven't bothered to upgrade Sonar for a couple of releases now as I can do much of what I want in Vegas.

If someone was to develop a sequencer plugin for Vegas, with DXi and VSTi support, I would ditch the other apps tomorrow!
