Before the days of automation, every fader movement had to be manual. Mercifully, those days are gone, and recording fader movements and other mix parameter changes is now extremely straightforward, making complex mixes possible.
In this Cubase Tutorial, Bruce Aisher explains exactly what automation is, and how you can use it to create a more interesting piece of music. You’ll learn the different automation modes in Cubase, how to edit automation data, and how to automate practically any parameter within the DAW or within your favourite plug-ins.
