Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Mixing with automation, part of Building a Commercial Soundtrack in Audition.
Now remember, we've submixed our six music stems into our music bus.…They're all channeling through that.…Now here's our opportunity to use that music bus…as a master control over all the music stems.…And we're going to use automation to change the level…of the music during the course of the ad.…So let's click and drag the music track. Down to make it nice and big.…We can see all the controls in there. There it goes.…What we want to see.…And notice down at the bottom here, where it says read.…There's a little disclosure triangle.…
If we click on that to open it, we get to see the volume envelope.…And envelope is just a fancy term for a volume line that we can add keyframes to.…That controls the overall fader volume of this track.…So what we want to do is add some key frames and…change the overall volume of the music stem as the track goes on.…So the very beginning of the track,…right before the voice over, I'm going to pull that out…a little bit, that's what we're kind of be working against here.…We want the track of the music to be at full volume…
