Clip envelopes to modulate effects on audio from an external source?


I'm sure this has been answered before but I couldn't figure out the right search terms to get a good answer.

I'm using Live for a live performance and we have one microphone coming into the set for a performer whose voice needs to be altered in different ways at different points in the set. Right now we have one track reserved for the microphone.

Is there a way to apply clip envelopes to the incoming audio signal? I basically want to have a clip I can trigger whose "content" is the incoming audio signal, but I can't figure out if that's possible. I'd like to stay in session view if I can, because it's an improvisational performance.

    If i understand you correctly, you need something called "ghost clips".

    This basically means you load a clip of audio, turn down the clip volume to 0 and add fx.

    Now set the input to the mic signal and use clip envelopes to draw the automation.

    Search for ghost clips to find more info on this.
