Help Center Pro Tools Automation

The next thing that we will go over is Automation. Automation can control the volumes or pan of a Track. So far we have looked at Tracks in the Wave Form view. For Automation, we will view Tracks in either the Volume or Pan view. *It is important to remember that cuts and copies done in this view will not effect the Audio, but only the Volume or Pan Automation.

1. First we change the View Box from Waveform to Volume by clicking on the box and choosing volume.
2. The Track will now show a black line that represents the Automation on the Track
3. Use the Grabber Tool to create Break Points by clicking on the line. You can then create increases or decreases in the volume by moving these points up and down. To Automate the Pan, do the same thing but up is right and the bottom is left.
