Giving your mix life with automation

We are not quite done with Automation yet. In this video, we'll check out how to extend Automation to software instruments. We'll also explore how to quickly assign a control on your MIDI keyboard to any automation parameter you want. Here we have our N_Synth track. It uses the ESE, a software instrument, to make it sound. One of the coolest controls in the ESE is the Cutoff knob. Let's automate it. First, we need to go into the Automation pulldown menu and choose ESE and then we can select Cutoff. Now we have our Cutoff Automation parameter in our view.

We'll put the track in to Touch Mode and when we hit Play, we'll move the Cutoff control with our mouse and write the Automation. (Music-playing.) We did this control with a mouse, but wouldn't it have been more fun and more creative to play this part on a knob or a fader? If you have a MIDI controller with a Modwheel, knob or fader, it's easy to quickly assign a control to an Automation parameter.
