Im my opinion Automation of audio tracks and instrument tracks is one of the most important aspects in making your mixes come alive!
I thought I would start a thread for you guys to add your own tips on using automation to its fullest extent.

I will start by sharing an sample from Martin Sitters Logic 101 "Mastering Logic " DVD.
Working with Static Automation

Also check the info from the Tips and Tricks area.

Adjust Automation Contained Within A Selection

Raising Automated Volume on Entire Track

Deleting/Resetting Automation on one Track or all Tracks

Please continue to share...

I have a question about automation in Logic pro. I'm sorry that I can't share any tips & tricks at this point, as I'm very new in Logic. :)

Is it possible to quickly reach a specific plugin parameter (let's say a filter knob on a synth), by means of pressing some key+mouse combination? I'm wishing there is some way to quick-open the automation curve of a certain plugin parameter in an Automation track, in the Arrange window. I find it very cumbersome having to search for the parameter name in the automation list, since many 3rd party plugin vendors often uses rather cryptic parameters names. I come from the Pro Tools world, and there I could Shift+Alt+Command-Click a knob from within a plugin window, and then it just knew what parameter that knob was assigned to, so I could easily go ahead and enable its automation. I'm sure there has to be a similar way in Logic, just don't know how...

Thanks for a nice site! I have some more questions, but I'll post them in another thread since this one is regarding automation only.

If I'm having trouble finding that particular parameter, I just hit record and make the adjustment in realtime... Then go into the automation and make the fine tune adjustments.

Hi there thanks for all the posts about this.

I still can't figure out a way to quickly copy and paste one audio region's complete automation info (pan, reverb, volume, etc) in one fell swoop. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I should add, I know how to copy and paste individual parameter's automation info, just not multiple parameters at a time.
