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'm not sure how deep AppleScript support in Logic is, but that would be the first place to check. If AppleScript won't do it, then you might try just directly processing MIDI. If you don't need results in real time, then it is easy. Just code up a MIDI processor using your favorite language and library (easy libraries exist for perl and Python. I suspect ...

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

Ok, so I think I understand the problem now. When you control the pitch with the LFO you're controlling it directly with a signal which (operating at signal rate) has a massive range and resolution, so it can control the pitch very precisely. When you use the pitch-bend wheel or write any automation in Pro Tools you are essentially writing in MIDI ...

Shot in the dark, are you using D-Verb? I've ran into this many times and eventually just stopped using the plug because of it. It's a known bug that sadly seems to have been around a long time. I'm pretty sure it's switching either the algorithm or the size that screws things up. Find another reverb you love and don't look back IMO. http://duc.avid.com/...

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 ...

I think that nowadays, what it really comes down to is communicating with the supervisor and the mixer. With digital workflows, it seems that there's no hard-and-fast answer for almost ANYTHING any longer. Having experienced both receiving tracks that were somewhat of a PITA on the stage, as well as delivering those, I've realized that really what it comes ...

For starters, I don't recommend using Sound Forge to do what you are attempting. Compared to other DAWs, it is limited. What I would do if possible is to have the volume change be gradual instead of instantaneous. In every other DAW this is done by applying an automation or envelope to the gain/volume with either a curve or a simple straight line which ...

"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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.)

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.

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

On a very personal view, I'd recommend just leaving it to 15/8 - it's just easier. I think this might help a little, but the easiest way to do it is by right cliking on the siganure filed (it's on the right of the tempo field) and clicking 'Edit Automation'. If I remember correctly, that will show a signature automation on the master track. Make the ...

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 ...

@soundspeed's already got it there. another suggestion -- if you constantly dip in to a particular automation lane, such as your trim gain, you could use your Zoom Toggle ('e') to switch views back and forth quickly. Just make sure it's set to 'last used' in prefs for the 'zoom toggle' section
