Automation What is Automation? Types of Automation Automation is the use of machines, control systems and information technologies to optimize productivity in the production of goods and delivery of services. What is Automation within music D.A.W Allows you to move the parameters within a DAW as your song plays. Read: The read setting basically does what it says on the tin. This will read any automation drawn onto the channel when played. The user can also draw automation in using the mouse with this setting. Its usually a good idea to have every channel set to this unless you are currently drawing in some automation to help prevent any data accidentally being entered.

Touch: This setting is usually best used when drawing in automation live using a mouse (Live being while the track is playing). This is because when the mouse or control is released, the parameter will return to its original setting.

Latch: Latch is again used for live recording, but I would say is more useful when using a controller. This is because the parameter will stay at whatever setting it is at when the mouse or control is released.

Write: This function comes with a warning from both logic and myself. Write will record automation in live, but will record every single parameter on the channel at the same time. This means that whatever parameters you are not controlling, there will still be automation recorded for them at whatever setting they are on. USE WITH CAUTION.

Next to 'Auto Zoom' & 'Flex Time' Once you have got your automation view up To automate the filter cutoff of the instrument you need to click where it sais volume (in yellow). Hover over your desired instrument, in this case the ESP, and select the cutoff. Simply click where you desire to have the parameter edits. In order to curve automation you must
access the tool menu in the top right of the screen (or hit the esc key), and select the automation curve tool. Once the tool is selected, simply click and drag the yellow line to your desired curve. How to copy/paste automation Select automation select tool in the tool menu in the top right of screen, or hit the esc key.
