Last week, Jono Buchanan introduced us to Latch mode automation within Logic Pro X, and how it can be useful for adding flair to your track. This week, we delve a little deeper, looking at Automation Curve, Touch mode, and the options available for deleting automation. The tools Jono guides you through this week will allow you to create smoother build-ups or fades with the Automation Curve tool, diverting from the default linear style of automation. Touch mode will let you edit automated parameters at a specific point in the track. The delete options Jono shows us can be used to delete sections of data on a track, or across all tracks and more.
