Sleepfreaks Let’s get started on our second tutorial for MetricAB. What we learn here is important in fully utilizing this plugin, and we will focus on the Playback section. Playback allows us to visually check the uploaded reference tracks. First, the volume. In this case, the volume between the song in production and the reference track are quite different, as shown here. This makes it difficult to compare the tracks with each other. By pulling up/down on the gain here, you can adjust the reference track’s volume. And by turning ON Match, while letting your track play it will automatically adjust the reference track. Here we can see that GAIN has been lowered by -4.3dB. The volume can be changed for different reference tracks as well. Next, we will take a look at the PLAYBACK MODE. This allows you to place CUE’s (markers) on your reference track. For example, in the intro here The song starts with sound effects, and won’t be used as a reference. By placing a CUE, you can quickly play from your desired spot. Applying CUE’s can be done easily. First, press the CUE number. Since we haven’t placed any yet we’ll click 1 first. By doing so, a CUE point will be created, and can be set to your desired location by dragging it. You can also add CUE’s by clicking on the next number and dragging it in the song. When playing the track by clicking you can switch to/between CUE’s. To delete a CUE, right click the number here, or right click the number below, and choose Delete Cue. In addition, by assigning CUE’s, you can use the LOOP mode function. By turning on LOOP, it’ll create a loop parameter.
Simply drag to choose where to loop. When in this mode, the reference track will play until it reaches the end of the loop, and play back again from the CUE. It’ll repeat the same spot with your DAW, making it incredibly useful for referencing. You can set different loop parameters for each CUE as well. Finally, lets take a look at the FILTERS section. You can select what frequency spectrum to monitor here. First turn on FILTERS here. If this setting isn’t turned on, the selected parameters won’t be applied, so be sure to check that it’s on. There are 3 filter types available. Choose from Low Pass, Band Pass, High Pass Filter, and choose the frequency spectrum to monitor from here. As shown, the High Pass Filter will work oppositely. When the effect is applied, the frequency spectrum will also reflect this as shown. The Band Pass Filter, will lower high and low frequencies. For example, by setting
High-4000Hz, Low-1000Hz Just the area shown here will be monitored in the reference track. There are also presets to monitor certain frequencies, with SUB – sub low end frequencies BASS – low end frequencies Low Mid – low mid frequencies Mid – middle frequencies High – high end frequencies This allows you to easily switch between different frequency bands. You can also customize settings from the selected presets. If you want to return the filters to their original settings, click the Reset button. Or simply turn the FILTERS OFF. This concludes our video on Metric AB, with a focus on the Playback section. In our next video, we will take a look at the remaining functions, so keep an eye out! Thanks for watching, and see you next time.
