Adding Motion with M-S Style Automation in Logic Pro X
Many people think automation is just for changing levels and moving sounds in the audio field. In fact, automation is one of the most powerful tools available in the modern DAW.
In this tutorial Stephen Ellestad demonstrates how to add motion and energy to a static pad sound with nothing more than basic volume and pan automation.
After demonstrating how to split and route the pad into a LCR configuration, he demonstrates how stereo and level automation create a variety of subtle changes, along with using Relative automation to add a control layer on top for further adjustment.
