Effect C. TypeThe EFFECT section lets you add effects such as compression, delay and reverb to any specific part of a mix within the frame.
DEPTH. This fader controls how much of the effect is used.
EFFECT. Specify the type of effect you want to apply to the sounds inside the frame.The available effects are compressor, delay and reverb.
TYPE. Each effect has several different sub-formats, as described in the following table.
Table 179. Effect types Figure 311. NOISE CANCEL section.A. Depth B. TypeThe NOISE CANCEL section lets you reduce noise from the audio data to improve the clarity of the sound. For example, a live recording sometimes contains power supply noise or the sound of an air conditioner, and sound played back from a cassette tape might contain a characteristic high-frequency hiss.
DEPTH. This fader controls how much noise reduction is applied.
TYPE. Select the appropriate type of noise filter to remove different types of noise from the audio data. The noise type options are as follows:
Bypass. Bypasses noise cancellation (no effect is applied).
HissNoise. Removes the high-frequency hiss that is typical of analog tape.
HumNoise. Removes low-frequency noise from the audio data.
WindNoise. Removes wind noise from the audio data.
AirCon. Removes the wind noise and motor noise produced by an air conditioner.
Note: The NOISE CANCEL effect will apply identically inside and outside the frame, regardless of the frame's size or shape.Figure 312. INSIDE section.A. Frame shape (rectangle) B. Inside level C. Inside pan D. Frame shape (oval)
SHAPE. Switches the shape of the frame between oval and rectangle.
INSIDE LEVEL. Specifies the level of the sound inside the frame.
PAN. Specifies the panning of the sound inside the frame. As you adjust the PAN knob, the red frame within the Harmonic placement plot indicates the panned position, while the solid dark frame indicates the original position.Figure 313. Harmonic placement plot and frame.A. Harmonic placement plot B. FrameThe plot displays components of a stereo mix as color-coded clouds of energy and harmonic matter as the song plays. The plot shows the following information:
Color: Indicates the loudness of the sound. In order of their loudness, the sounds are shown as white (loudest) > red > yellow > green > blue (softest).The frame is a rectangle or oval you use to select the desired sound. There are two color-coded frames:
A solid dark frame, used to select the region of sound that will be processed. To adjust the frame, move the mouse pointer to the edge of the frame, then drag to resize the frame.Figure 314. Frame.A. Red frame (INSIDE PAN position) B. Solid dark frame (original position)When you first launch R-MIX SONAR Edition, the two frames coincide, causing them to appear to be a single frame. However, if you move the INSIDE PAN knob, you'll see the two frames move apart.If you want to find the desired sound, or adjust the size of the frame after you have adjusted the INSIDE PAN knob, you'll need to adjust the solid dark frame.To resize the frame, drag the frame’s edge. If you want to undo the changes you made to the frame, double-click the Harmonic placement plot to return the frame to its initial state.

OUTSIDE LEVEL. Specifies the level of the sound outside the frame.
PAN. Specifies the panning of the sounds outside the frame.Figure 316. Bypass button.Use the BYPASSS button to enable/disable R-MIX processing.
