Intro to Space Designer global controls in Final Cut Pro
Space Designer’s global controls affect the overall output or behavior of the effect. The global controls are divided into two sections—those around the main display, and those below the main display.
For information about adding the Space Designer effect to a clip and showing the effect’s controls, see Add Logic effects to clips in Final Cut Pro.
Global controls: Upper section
These controls are found around the main display.
Input slider: Determine how Space Designer processes a stereo or surround input signal. See Space Designer Input slider in Final Cut Pro.
Latency Compensation button: Turn Space Designer’s internal latency compensation feature on or off. See Space Designer Latency Compensation in Final Cut Pro.
Definition area: Switch to a less defined IR set, in order to emulate reverb diffusion and save CPU resources. See Space Designer Definition controls in Final Cut Pro.
Rev Vol Compensation button: Engage Space Designer’s internal IR volume matching function. See Space Designer Rev Vol Compensation in Final Cut Pro.
Output sliders: Adjust output levels. See Space Designer output sliders in Final Cut Pro.
Global controls: Lower section
These controls are found below the main display.
Pre-Dly (Predelay) knob: Set the reverb’s predelay time, or time between the original signal and the first reflections from the reverb. See Space Designer Pre-Dly (Predelay) in Final Cut Pro.
IR Start knob: Set the playback start point in the impulse response sample. See Space Designer IR Start controls in Final Cut Pro.
Spread and Xover knobs (synthesized IRs only): Use Spread to adjust the perceived width of the stereo or surround field. Use Xover to set the crossover frequency in hertz. Any synthesized impulse response frequency that falls below this value will be affected by the Spread parameter. See Space Designer spread controls in Final Cut Pro.
