Hi folks

If I add reverb,distortion or bit-8 it affects the notes/wave of the track 100%. Or I can use the frequence shifter, also here the hole track is affected. But what if I like to have only 30% gain of the device and let it slowly growing to 100% or if I'd like to slowly let the frequence shifter go up for example? Is there something (another device?) where I can set the time space i'd like to affect and how I want it to affect.

Thanks for help :)

I am not sure to understand, but try this chain (no send bus needed):

[your device] + distortion

where you will automate the "mix" parameter of the distortion. In this example, I use Drum machine + distortion + Bit-8, crossfading the two FX (the DJ uses his two hands ;-).

The mix parameter is the balance of dry/wet signal. That should be the "DJ knob" effect you're after. You will find it as well in the Freq. Shifter and other FX, but not all of them, Bitwig's EQs for example.

Hi, why not using a send bus (an effect track)? Then you may automate the gain you send to this effect track.

Also, you can try the Multiband FX2 or FX3 (native plugin), that you can use to affect a frequency range of the track.

It's you again Pakunoda :D Thank you so much to help me out! I never used effect tracks before. And I knew there must be something fundamental. Merry Christmas

Well, it wasn't what I expected. It's true, I can automate the gain I send to this effect track. But what I am trying to do is set up the time space. For example I add distortion 100%. gain then pulling disortion slowly down in 6 seconds unti its 20% gain. Like a dj whos live turning knobs. Is that possible with bitwig?
