This video is just out, showing to the world how to use the Calf Vocoder aboard the Ardour war ship :
- Create a 4 channel audio bus, put the Vocoder plugin on it ;
- Redirect the stereo output of a stereo Audio track (Vocal: Carrier) to the Vocoder bus 1 and 2 inputs ;
- Redirect the stereo output of a stereo MIDI track (Synth: Modulator) to inputs 3 and 4 of the vocoder bus.
My problem, in all my previous attempt to do this in our beloved "light assault vehicle" sequencer, lies in the points 2 and 3 of this deceptively short list : How to I expose the outputs of my Carrier and Modulator tracks in order to redirect them to specific inputs of the bus? The "connections" window only shows busses in/outs, not tracks. Same if I use "Outputs" by right-clicking on the very track (?) And if I try to check, in the options window, the Plugins/Instruments/Dedicated audio outputs, not only does it not solve my problem (and where would be my vocal/carrier - audio - track outputs anyway?) but everything begins to work in a weird way. I'm not really sure what that option does (it seems to be cool though, like the "right click/ins-outs") and I'm clearly not using it as it should be.
Is this Vocoding technique/procedure simply possible? And if not, is there any alternative?
