Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using automation, part of Up and Running with REAPER 4.
(BLANK_AUDIO.).…As you are probably aware of by now, a large part of mixing your project…involves finding the right level for each track by adjusting the fader.…But you are not going to want to have certain tracks be the exact same level…throughout the entire song or project you are working on.…There may be cases where sound level will be uneven in certain places or may be…too loud or too quiet.…Or maybe you want to bring up an instrument for a solo and then take it back…down to its original level.…Fortunately, REAPER includes a powerful automation system that lets you…specify exactly when you want a fader 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 automate just about every fader and dial in each track and even automate effects.…Let's take a look at how this works.…For this example I'm going to use the Guitar 2 Dry track.…Since it appears pretty much throughout the entire song.…Go ahead and solo that.…Now, during the verses we have variations on this riff here.…
