    its a great/easy to use move

    dont do it too much tho. so awesome freezing it on a vocal phrase that echos out over a breakdown of a new track.

    question about the the technicalities of freezing tho. does freezing track A to say 2/3 or 1/4 mean itll echo on teh beat of track b at either of those speeds?? or how much of a bar it "freezes" to delay out?

    keeping it simple: i like to lower the bass to about 9 oclock but bring the mids up to about 1-2 oclock on the track coming in if its a vocal track. sounds pretty natural to me, distingueshes the voice nicely

    As long as this one stays on topic, i think it deserves to be stickified

    Great thread! The echo freeze is a great transition I take advantage of with the Midifighter mapping.

    I normally will go with one of the transitions Ean showed in a video:

    At the breakdown of Song A, begin Song B (either begin or from break down) and slowly fade or filter off Song A at its build up or at the build up of B. Really this involves more counting beats/measures than anything.

    I filter and EQ a lot of tracks as well.
