- [Instructor] As you're probably aware of by now,…a large part of mixing your project…involves finding the right level for each track…by adjusting the volume faders.…But you're not always gonna wanna have certain tracks…be the exact same level throughout the entire song…or project you're working on.…There may be tracks where the sound level…is uneven in certain places,…where it gets too loud or too quiet,…or maybe you wanna bring up an instrument for a solo,…and then take it back down to its original level.…Fortunately, GarageBand includes…a powerful automation system that allows you…to specify exactly when you wanna fade or to move,…how far it moves, and how long it stays there.…
And it's not just volume levels that can be automated.…You can also automate things like…the track panning, as well as the smart control settings.…Let's use the rhythm guitar for this example.…I'm gonna solo that,…and let's listen to a couple of seconds.…(rhythm guitar plays)…Okay, so at this verse area,…the guitar drops down a bit in volume.…
