How to use high and low pass filters on R8?

Post by MrSpiderhead » Mon Oct 23, 2017 1:48 pm

Hi folks,

So, my first post will be a bit of a rookie question. I have the Zoom R8 and have been using it on and off for a while. Now, I'd like to start taking mastering a little more seriously. Well, I read a forum post elsewhere ages ago that detailed how to create high and low pass filters for tracks on the R8, despite there inexplicably not being a dedicated filter effect (as far as I can see). So, does anyone know how to do this? I don't mind having to apply it as a send effect and bounce the track, but I can't figure out how to actually set such an effect in the first place (there are high and low cuts in some of the other effects, but the manual does such a poor job of explaining what the various parameters do that I have no idea what's going on).

I suspect this is being emulated by setting the three-steps of the track EQ to suited values (maximum -dB, with frequency set toward the outer edge -- so a high-pass would set EQ LOW to -maximum, and a frequency somewhere below where you no-longer want "filter"; MID and HIGH set to 0dB (so frequency doesn't really matter)). You are limited to a +/- 12dB on the EQ.

Hmm, there are HI CUT and LOW CUT options, which may more directly reflect "Low Pass" and "High Pass" respectively.

You probably have to bounce to make the setting "permanent" in the data.

Wait, there are low and high cut in the eq? I only saw them is a resonance send effect. Is track EQ a separate entity from the send effects?
