Mix and Master Yourself – Quick Mix Guide (Part 8)

Have you every been in a situation where you want an effect to happen in one section of your musical piece, but not in another? Or maybe you want to control the parameter? Maybe you want the dry (unaffected) signal to occur in the first half of the chorus and then to gradually become wetter (processed, effected) towards the end.

The simple solution, and end to the quick mix guide, is to add automation.

Simply, automation is having the DAW change a parameter without you having to physically do it as the piece is being played back through the speakers.

If you are unfamiliar with where in your DAW you can access automation, I advise that you do so. Once you are able to, play around and see what cool things you can come up with!
