Join J. Scott Giaquinta for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with clip-based automation, part of EDM Production Techniques: Drums.
…I'd like to show you a really quick technique.…I've shown you a lot of different ways that you…can automate effects and parameters in but another way that…a lot of people don't know about is clip-based automation,…I'm going to show you how to do that here.…So we're going to zoom into middle percussion 1,…we're going to click the edit button down here.…You'll notice that there are a few…different menu bars, a couple different menu bars.…Make sure that it's on clip, and you can click to…volume modulation, transposition modulation, grain size,…and so on and so forth.…What we're going to do is we're going to…do transposition modulation, which essentially transposes the sample.…
So let me show you what happens here when we plot these automation points.…So you can hear that pitching up as it plays throughout the clip.…Another cool thing that you can do is you…can cut and paste automation parameters, like a pattern.…So let me show you.…I am going to plot this at one here.…And this one about eight.…I'll go back down.…
