Orinj Wah wah

Not Rated Yet

Orinj version 3.0.3

The Orinj Wah wah is a standard wah wah effect. It imitates the sound of the syllable "wah" by adding gain to an interval of high frequencies and gradually, but quickly shifting this interval down the frequency spectrum to mid and then low frequencies and then back up to high frequencies.

Using the Orinj Wah wah

The Orinj Wah wah can be added to tracks in the multitrack session view, tracks in the loop building view, and to waves in the single wave view. In the multitrack session view and in the loop building view, first select the track to which you want to add the effect. In all these views, click on Effect, then on Equalization, and then on Orinj Wah wah in the Orinj menu. You will see the following dialog.

The Orinj Wah wah dialog

When the dialog becomes visible, the wah wah has been added. Adjust the wah wah parameters in the dialog and click on Close. The parameters of the Orinj Wah wah are described below.

Orinj Wah wah parameters

See Orinj Effects for notes on the Title, Track, Presets, and Bypass controls. The remaining Orinj Wah wah controls are as follows.

  • Attack: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the attack of the wah wah. The attack is the amount of time for the wah wah to roll from high to low frequencies. It is measured in milliseconds and can be between 0 ms and 1000 ms.
  • Sustain down: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the amount of time the wah wah filter spends at the low frequencies. This time is measured in milliseconds and can be between 0 ms and 1000 ms.
  • Release: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the release of the wah wah. The release is the amount of time for the wah wah to roll from low to high frequencies. It is measured in milliseconds and can be between 0 ms and 1000 ms.
  • Sustain up: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the amount of time the wah wah filter spends at the high frequencies. This time is measured in milliseconds and can be between 0 ms and 1000 ms.
  • Offset: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the time offset between the beginning of the wah wah attack and the beginning of the track or wave. This time is measured in milliseconds and can be between -1000 ms (wah wah to the left) and 1000 ms (wah wah to the right). This control is provided as the beginning of the song (the time from the beginning of the session to the first beat of the song) may not correspond to a whole number of wah wah cycles (attack plus sustain down plus release plus sustain up), and because the user may not want the wah wah attack to happen exactly on the beat.
  • Top: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the frequency, at which the wah wah attack will begin. This frequency is measured in Hz and can be between 1000 Hz and 11000 Hz.
  • Bottom: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the frequency, at which the wah wah attack will stop. This frequency is measured in Hz and can be between 0 Hz and 1000 Hz.
  • Filter width: Use these controls – the box and the slider – to set the width of the frequency interval affected by the wah wah. This is the width of the interval, to which the wah wah introduces gain, at high frequencies first and then mid and low frequencies. It is measured in Hz and can be between 0 Hz and 1000 Hz.

The sum of the attack, sustain down, release, and sustain up times of this wah wah is the total wah wah time. For example, if the attack, sustain down, release, and sustain up are each 100 ms, then the wah wah will repeat every 400 ms and its rate (LFO rate) will be 1/0.4 = 2.5 Hz.

The top and bottom frequencies will usually be set to the top and bottom of the range of the recorded instrument. For example, this wah wah may be most pronounced for an acoustic guitar recording if the top and bottom are set at around 2000 Hz and 500 Hz respectively.

This particular wah wah may be less pronounced with very narrow filter width (e.g., less than 100 Hz) or very wide filter width (e.g., over 700 Hz).

See Orinj Effects for additional notes on: where Orinj effects can be used, using boxes and sliders that impact the same parameter (such as the box and slider for the wah wah attack), applying effects to mono and stereo waves, and using effects during playback. See Orinj Working with effects for additional information on creating, modifying, moving, removing, and processing effects. See Wah wah for additional information on the wah wah in audio processing.
