SONAR X1 - Advanced Workshop is the second video tutorial created by Cakewalk that provides comprehensive techniques about using SONAR X1. This is a compilation of advanced workshop videos that provides an in-depth exploration of techniques - the kind that you would expect of a master workshop that will give you real insight into some of the more sophisticated things that you can do with SONAR X1.
SONAR X1 - Advanced Workshop is a training series that takes on a wide range of subjects that includes ambience and spatial effects, working with guitars working with vocals, vintage effects emulation, workflow, and much, much more. This is Cakewalk's second official video tutorial following the release of SONAR X1 - Advanced Workshop is 1 hour and 52 minutes in length and contains 30 video tutorials in 8 main areas of focus.
AMBIENCE AND SPATIAL EFFECTS
Video 1, "Better Drums with Virtual Room Mics," will show you how to create a better drum track through the use of adding ambience to a dry drum track and using the Sonitus:fx Delay to create multiple, short, prime number delays that emulate room sounds. Video 2, "The Preverb Effect," takes a look at how you can add reverb, then reversing the effect so that the reverb builds up to a sound rather than decaying after it.
Video 3, "Mono-to-Stereo Spreader," examines how, through the use of the VC-64 equalizer, you can take a mono signal and turn it into stereo through the use of delays. This gives you the ability to make an instrument such as a guitar, and give it a stereo sound. Video 4, "Ethereal Reverb," will take a vocal track and show you how to use emphasize the reverb tail as it decays for a transparent, ethereal quality.
Video 5, "Stereo Widening," explores the use of Channel Tools to take your stereo audio and give you a super-stereo sound. This technique works for both single tracks as well as for whole mixes. Video 6, "Neo-Gated Reverb," while not as in-style recently, with this technique you will have an updated sound for a more flexible, and interesting, gated reverb effect.
