How to Make an Echo With Mixcraft

An echo effect repeats a portion of an audio source after a specified length of time has passed. Adding an echo effect to your Mixcraft digital audio production creates a sense of space and fullness in the music. Use a short echo time for guitars, vocals and lead synthesizers; apply a longer echo time for pads and other background elements of the track. Mixcraft includes a built-in delay effect plugin; use this effect to make an echoing sound.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Launch Mixcraft and open the project in which you want to make an echo.

  2. 2

    Click the "Effects" button if you want to add an echo to the entire project. If you want to make an echo for a specific Mixcraft track, click the "FX" button on that track.

  3. 3

    Click the drop-down "Effects" menu. Click "Acoustica Delay" in the list that opens.

  4. 4

    Click the drop-down menu under "Preset." Choose either "Slapback Echo" or "Echoes" from the list of presets.

  5. 5

    Click the "Edit" button next to the preset. Click and drag the "Delay" slider to adjust the echo's time. Adjust the "Wet Mix" and "Dry Mix" sliders to determine how much of the echo effect Mixcraft applies to the audio.

  6. 6

    Close the "Edit" window and the "Effect List" window. Click the "Play" button to hear the echo effect.

Tips and warnings

  • Place a high-pass filter before the echo in the "Effects" list to reduce low-frequency reverberation.
