Using DFX Audio Enhancer with Sonar/PT?

Using DFX Audio Enhancer with Sonar/PT? - 11/27/15 05:50 AM

Anyone ever found a way to record the DFX Audio Enhancer (program that allows you to use EQs & FX on your PC for music, games, etc). The latest one with the new EQ sounds so good, I wish I could utilize it as a plugin somehow. That makes a huge difference in the quality and is such a warm analog sounding EQ, it's quite a bit better than what I could do with say Ozone or anything in the plugin world. Even the Max Recorder they also sell does not record the effect.

Didn't think I would get lucky on this one, but have it figured out. You can download Audacity, and set it up like this:

Driver: WinASPI

Recording: Speakers (Avid Eleven Rack)

Playback: Speakers (DFX)

For some reason, this is what works. So here you have the solution if you want to try this out.


Here's the links for the two programs:

Made an IR so I could just load it up in Sonar on the mix and not have to mess around so much, it will be a bit different, but retains some of the characteristics and enhancements.

Here's the IR if you want to try it out: http://1drv.ms/1RauFpA

Will have to see how it works with cabinet IRs, but something to add to your IR collection.

Tried the IR over some prerecorded guitar stuff, just to see if it's something I could tweak some cabinets with. Some things work great. Kinda tightens things up and gets rid of the noise, but has a compressed kinda sound in the lows.

Here's another reamp with the Kemper cabinets and I used the DFX Audio Enhancer after I already had as good of a mix as I was going to get. This makes a perfect "analog" summing method to get some extra life out of mixes.
