I’ve recorded audio from tape without any effects. I now want to master it using an Ardour plugin chain.
I can make it work, sort of, by:
- Importing the audio
- Creating a new empty stereo track, and wiring that to master out
- Setting up the plugin chain on master
- Muting the new track / arming it for recording
- Playing / recording
Works, but it’s a little kludgy (particularly when I come to play the audio back as a final check). Is there a better workflow for doing this?
