Use VST Effects

The MultiTrack Editor provides a clipboard tab “Effects”.

Open the Effects tab in the clipboard.

Here, the four standard effects Easy-Equalizer, Parametric-Equalizer, Subsonic filter and Compressor, and all installed DirectX and VST effects are shown.

Apply Effects to Tracks

Open the TrackMixer by clicking its icon 

FX placeholders appear for holding max three effects per track:

Drag the effect from the clipboard to the FX placeholder of the desired track. Effects being integrated this way are processed from top to bottom.

Active (highlighted) effects are deactivated (bypassed) with a left click (here Subsonic).

A right click opens a menu which allows you to

  • Show effect opens the effect window.
  • Copy effect to another placeholder
  • Remove effect from the FX-placeholder; the effect below will move up into that slot to fill the gap.
  • change the order of the effects by selecting move up/down.
