Continuing with our exploration into automation, this week’s Logic Pro Tips video features Jono Buchanan teaching us how to apply automation to our auxiliary sends. We know already that we can use auxiliary sends and busses to send an audio signal to an effects processor, but Jono shows us how to gradually apply that as an arrangement progresses using automation. This can be useful for creating massive build-ups or simply adding some flair to a repeating sequence. You’ll find that the knowledge we now have in Logic Pro’s automation tools will allow us to be more fluent in creating curves and slopes, allowing us to spend more time being creative.
