Camelot can generate sounds by playing Software instruments and also playback Audio Files for backing tracks. Software Instruments are loaded and controlled on each Scene from the Layer View; while the Audio Files are located in the Timeline, in the Backing Tracks Section.
In both sections, there are local faders that allow direct control for each track’s level, mute or solo option. You can also access the output settings to select the output channels.
By default, any Layer or Backing Track is assigned to the Main Audio Output. You can always change this option in Camelot’s System Settings, on the Audio Menu. But there’s much more to the Main Audio Output: any track can benefit from Master FX consisting of a Compressor, EQ, a Master Delay, and a Master Reverb. Those built-in Master effects process all the audio routed to the Main Audio Output. This has a huge value: the FX chain parameters are applied to the entire Setlist so you can adjust your Mix accounting for different conditions that each show requires, such as different PAs and venues. This ensures your Sound will be the same consistent sound that you have designed in your Studio or during the rehearsals.
If you need more flexibility, bypassing the Main Out FX Chain and selecting different outputs is easily done. You can also load and insert your own FX plug-ins onto any layer.
Finally, to guarantee quick access to the entire Audio Section, you can expand the Mixer Layer View, that’s always accessible from the footer speaker icon. Like the other persistent footer panels, the Audio Section can be displayed from any screen. Again, you don’t need to learn anything new, because you can control anything in Camelot using the same approach, just by expanding and collapsing items.
