Re: How Can I Do This (And What Do I Need)

I haven't done this one live either, but a _similar_ effect can
easily be achieved by:

1) grab a sample
2) reverse the waveform so that it plays backwards
3) process this reversed waveform through a delay line (plugin)
4) reverse again the output from step 3

Now the delayed signal will ramp up before the orignal waveform,
which will play forwards as normal.  Not exactly what you're
going for maybe, but hey it's fun!

To get an effect closer to what you might actually be going for,
you could use some kind of level control (envelope, manual mix
control) to process only the portion of the wave (the 'H' in
your example) that you want to stutter in the beginning.  It
might even be possible to do this 'live' on the can mix and then
bring it into the main mix once you're done.
