EMX Drums and Filter...

Postby hseiken on Mon Aug 31, 2009 1:01 pm

Can you? I can't remember but I thought I heard somewhere that on the EMX, the drums don't get the benefit of the synth filter as on ESX.

True? I hope not...

Sad but true. On the EMX their are no dedicated filters for the drum parts as their are on the ESX. But their are several workarounds, so thats the good news :)

You say there are several workarounds... surely you can only use either the FX filters, or run the appropriate drum parts back through the audio in jack. Is there another way as well? I would LOVE to discover I've missed a trick here.

Well, neither of those would be all that great for me. My favorite 'trick' on the ESX to get drums sounding the way I want is to use the BPF+ to give percussion more body that I can tweak to taste. Coupled with Pitch envelope and filter envelope, you can make pretty much any drum sound mad. :)

Thanks for the info though...

Most people are pretty familiar with the basic two ways to filter drums on the EMX. That is:

1) selecting a filter from the global effects matrix and applying it to a drum part.

2)Routing you're drum parts into one of you're synth parts to take advantage of the synth filters.
The downside to this prodecure is that it will take away one of you're synth parts :?

AND....

3)My favorite! For this one you're gonna need both machines.
Route you're selected drum parts into the ESX's audio in. Make you're sound/parameter and filter settings on the ESX's Audio In part, and tweak away! You'll now be able to apply filtering to any of you're EMX drum parts! :mrgreen:
Its a pretty simple procedure that I havent really heard anyone mention before.
But it gets the job done.

Well, if I'm getting another machine involved, I really may as well just use the drums on the ESX, especially since I don't have to use factory sounds. :)

But I never heard about routing the drums to the synth parts. Do you just select one of the synth parts and can rout any of the drum parts to it, sort of like the effects where you can send them to the effect as an option?

Yup just like that. Except on the EMX you select "audio in+comb" from the synth oscillator for a synth part. You'll than be able to monitor you're drum sounds that you've routed to that specific synth part. You should also be able to filter you're drum parts now.
One other thing. In addition to having Drum PCM samples on the EMX, you also have Synth PCM samples that you can only use in the synth section. But the downside to this is again, you're synth polyphony being eaten up by drums. The good thing about the synth PCM drums is that you can use the synth filters on them right from the get go, without having to do all of the routing like you have to do on the regular PCM samples.

Excuse me to insist on this but how do you rout your drum to a synth part????....?????

Connect a 1/4" cable to you're 3/4 outputs on the back of you're EMX. Connect that cable to the audio in on the back of you're EMX. Select a synth part and choose "Audio in + comb" from the synth Oscillator. Tap a few drum parts in the drum section, you'll now be able to hear yourself playing through the synth part and you'll be able to use all the synth filters, drive knob etc on you're drums:)

Just a reminder.......You can pick and choose which drums you want routed in the editing matrix by turning the "3/4" option on or off. Also dont forget to turn all of you're steps on and adjust the gate time in pattern mode so you can hear the incoming audio.
