  • Splicing Vocal Takes in Pro Tools

    I am trying to splice together two vocal takes, mid vowel, without experiencing a "pop" sound, which I have done unsuccessfully thus far. If it was a consonant this would be an easier task where I could mask the transition under a harsher sound. I've tried all the tricks that I know: crossfades, matching same direction soundwaves at zero amplitude, consolidating the two regions, and all in combination. 

    Any more tricks you know of?

    That sometimes happens in PT for some reason, no matter how much care that you take in making the splice at zero crossing points.


    One other workaround that you could try would be to put the two takes on two different tracks, and apply either mute or volume envelopes to both tracks, getting a smooth transition.


    Simply buss the two outputs to an aux, and that aux will now be your vocal track.

    flip the phase

      What a refreshingly great idea. Thanks, gubu. That should work nicely.

      Damn.. did not work. Thought that would be the solution.

      Any other ideas?
