    How to apply audiosuite effects to specific segments

    Hello,

    I'm new to both Media Composer First and video/audio editing in general. I've tried looking at the documentation for this problem, but haven't found a solution.

    I'm trying to apply the TimeShift effect in the AudioSuite to a segment of an audio track, but whenever I apply it, it is done to the entire track. I've tried marking a portion of the track with the In/Out markers but to no avail, so I think I'm misunderstanding how the In/Out markers work. Is there also a way to apply the TimeShift effect so that it is gradual? In other words, lets say I wanted to slow down a track by 50% but I want it to to descend down rather than being applied all at once.

    Thanks for the help and assistance.

    An Audio suite effect will apply to a whole clip. So you need to add edits to your audio track to create a seperate section. Then the Audio suite effect will aplly to just that section.

    Thanks for help, that was my suspicion. Is there a way to apply TimeShift as a progression? Like instead of slowing an entire clip down by 50%, having it slow down gradually?

    I don't think you can keyframe Audio suite plugins. You could break the clip up into lots of clips and then stagger the timeshift in each clip.

    (no idea if this is part of your FIRST stock FX, if it can even work outside of ProTools, but it sells for $7.99 and requires iLok2, it says)

    If you can run the third-party software called AUDACITY, a popular, freeware Audio program, you can accomplish that "powered-down turntable" effect very quickly and with a minimum of effort.

    After loading your audio into Audacity, it involves ADDing something called a "Time Track", then setting a range (100% or more to maybe as low as 0%) and then manipulating key frames with something they call the Envelope tool, inside that Time Track. Very point and click.

    Then Exporting a WAV or if you have Audacity set up for it, an MP3.

    There's certainly as way, in AVID, to build a whole bunch of Pitch-adjusted master clips... but it's not as simple to accomplish and perhaps not as smooth at transitions.
