Do any of you here do it? How do you do it? Right now I’m working on an upright piano for pianobook that’s looking like its gonna be close to 1000 clips of audio and I’m more or less cutting each note and tail by hand (hotkey) and trimming to the points of relative silence and artistic transient.
I’m in logic and I know there are features such as as the remove silence tool, but some of my samples are so quiet that any useful threshold I try to set to save me a LOT of time (and not just a little) is negated by having to go back and look for my quietest strikes / velocity layers. Especially for room microphone positions I find this to be the case, the up close ones aren’t so bad in my past experience.
Any tips? thanks
Often my quietest layers on a track will look like this an even an extreme zoom doesn’t always yield a helpful result, so much of the time I just end up using my ears.
