Automation

#1

Do you use any automation in your mixes?

#2

On just about every mix. I love it and can’t live without it. I use it for fades, panning, boosts, etc… Logic has a different control scheme than what I was used to with Sonar but it’s easier in some ways and more difficult in others. For the primary uses that I need it for, it’s easier.

I have never touched this…

I think that has something to do with why my stuff sounds like dog ass…

A big part of it is I only recently even understood what it was. And I;ve only scratched the top most surface in understanding why we should be moving anything during a mix…

:oops:

It’s not necessary to get a good mix with but it does offer some nice conveniences. I’ll use it to lower volumes of certain tracks in some sections and then use it to pan off if two instruments come to the forefront. Since I work harmonies, this is a great tool for that. :sunglasses:

I’ve been reading about using it to steer the song into certain areas.

Beefing up choruses, certain sections, building intensity, etc…

Don’t forget you can automate fx too…like say multiband compressors.

MikEdge did a thread on all of this. Where is that masked man? :smile:
