What you are looking for is a Dugan automixer. This can be acquired as either a hardware processing device, as software inside an existing hardware device such as a mixer, or as a VST plugin. I strongly don't recommend you attempt to re-engineer the Dugan algorithm with discrete plugins - this will be re-inventing the wheel and will ultimately fail as ...

To move the whole automation, you have to select the entire area of the automation first, then move it. BUT.. This is a common problem, that pretty much everyone solves the same way. Do not under any circumstances automate the final volume of a track...EVER. In Ableton you drop a utility effect on the track and use it to do volume automation. This way ...

I usually have my Dial editors only do very basic level adjustments. Basically lower any really loud pfx or a line that is dramatically out of sorts with the rest of the scene. With noise reduction, I never want my editor to do any broadband NR or notch filtering. You can get into a lot of unnecessary processing that might not be needed once everything ...

It depends on the agreements made between the dialogue editor/supervisor and the sound supervisor. Mixers could prefer to not have volume automation, but this differs. Why do you ask? Are you editing dialogue? Or are you mixing the movie? Recommended reading: Dialogue-Editing-Motion-Pictures

"Option -" (minus sign) Shows all volume automation. Cntrl+Command Left and Right Arrow keys goes through all the automation paramters on a selected track. And Cntrl Option Cmnd left and right on arrow keys goes through all the automation paramters on ALL tracks.

I know of no way to do what you're asking. I'm fairly confident that opening individual automation lanes one by one is the only way.

How long are your 26 lectures? Would it be unreasonable to simply re-record your mixes to a new file and create your mp3 from that? Don't know how much time you're wasting while waiting for each audiosuite to render, but by re-recording after editing/mixing you'd: Sit through it all once, listening to and proofing the resulting file as it goes down. Use ...

If all you're doing is changing the output bus to a higher channel count, it should keep the panning information and spread it across the new channel layout appropriately.

In studio settings, this is common, especially with talkback microphones. It's called ducking. Ducking is a type of side-chain compression. This is the standard way of doing it, however, there is technically a second and third way to do it, which I will also describe below. To setup a side-chain, you need a compressor with side chaining abilities, whether ...

A midi transposition effect should do exactly what you're after. I am pretty sure its parameters can be controlled via automation. https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/live-midi-effect-reference/#pitch Unless you want to edit the notes in place. In that case Cmd-A (select all), then use the up/down keys to transpose the pitch up and down. Hold down shift to ...

This is actually quite trivial. If you were to upload a "Sweep Tone" to the site, it will return the "sweep tone" modified for you. The great thing about "sweep tones" is that they can be used to "reverse engineer" an impulse response which can then be used in a convolution filter to re-create the original effect. Here is a link to an article I wrote which ...

Several things a dialog editor can and should do with level automation... smooth out transitions between handles on different takes keep dialog levels roughly consistent between takes reduce loud momentary sounds gently reduce annoyingly loud constant background sounds around dialog, but not during it I don't discourage editors from using something like ...

One solution would be to have the output of the track go to a bus, instead of output 1-2. Then you could either used the fader on the bus, instead of the track, or you could put the automation on the bus track (your would need to create a track for the bus to be able to automate on it). You could also use a plugin and automate the output volume of the ...

Distortion in the form of clipping would be very difficult to remove: the waveform has been altered, and information on the missing part of the waveform has been lost.

Depends on what sort of result you want. Sure you can analyze whether a file contains more than a reasonable amount of 50Hz or 60Hz and you can notch that out, but the problem with this approach is that every file is likely to be different and will require the attention of someone with the requisite skills in order to be able to get the best result. If you ...

My initial thought was, does it matter really? Because you can separate the stereo tracks after recording, you hinted to this in Q1. If you run two (unrelated) mono tracks through a stereo stream, then you still have two mono tracks, i.e. Q1; it makes no difference. But you can record mono inputs to mono tracks in Audacity, if this is what you want. If you ...

A script would have to be able to distinguish between dialogue you want to keep, and "noise", as thresholds and other means wouldn't work in this scenario. It would be easier (IMO) to simply place markers (M-key) where you wish to silence the track, prior to/post your fade-in/out points. Then select the space between the markers, click 'Process' and reduce ...

The best way to move all of it would be to select all of the nodes within the automation. I don't know if there is a shortcut for that but if you hold shift and click and drag, you can select multiple nodes. If you zoom all the way out, you can accomplish this much easier. My preferred method for doing something like this, however, is to add an EQ or ...

The general idea of having the tracks expand when editing automation is that it gives you more room to make the changes, which allows for more precision. I've liked this feature, so I haven't looked for a way to change it but I would recommend looking in the settings for automation section of the preferences menu. So I can say definitively that this is not ...

If you set up your routing it should be fine. So you're going from your mono (and possibly some stereo) tracks (dia, sfx, bg..) into the appropriate aux (dia aux, sfx aux, bg aux...). When you get to the hd rig you'll add an LCR aux that will be fed from all your stereo auxes to your speaker output.

Why don't you just fade the clip volume directly on your clip?! (picture from http://www.kentsandvik.com/)

Better is pretty subjective :-) but I'd go with automation if the automation is simple. For something more complex I'd go with two tracks with the regions needed for each.

In theory the more track you have, the more CPU and memory you use so the more latency you get. Different settings on the same track seems a wiser solution, but a bit more delicate to achieve. The tricky part really appears when a software doesn't take in charge properly sudden changes on parameters, the dangers is getting glitches/noises or a too brutal ...

SureLog can record either continuously or in hourly sections and can name the files according to the date and time. It is actually designed for recording radio output. More information can be found on the site. (For those on a budget, there is also a gratis version avaliable.)

Since this is a MIDI file, any pan/voleme information in it would be in the forum of MIDI Control Change messages. In many hosts that's a different thing from the kind of host-side track automation curves/channels that it sounds like you're looking at. Check the Event List in Logic. (or whatever equivalent it has now) http://www.logic-users-group.com/...

Tracking is the easiest and normal Way if you have different FX for one Instrument. Another way is to add both fx settings after each other and then Automate wet/dry. Good Day

Found this on a gearslutz forum a while back (sorry to whoever originally wrote it, credit to you!) What I used to do was: suspend automation, mess around for a bit, shift+cmd+c my settings, and then roll back a bit. Enable latch mode, hit play and then shift+cmd+v the settings. Obviously, this is kind of a pain and takes longer than it would w/ HD. ...

In PT10 with Production Toolkit, I use an Artist Series Control with soft keys for Preview, Punch Preview, and Write to Selected. Before I got that, I used to use the Automation palette always in the same spot with a QuicKey macro (now I'd use a Keyboard Maestro macro) to push the palette's buttons from the keyboard. Clicking on the Automation palette ...
