Recording and Drawing Automation With Massive
In this tutorial, Johnny covers some techniques for recording and drawing automation with Massive.
Automation is something I love and hate. I love the results, but I hate how tedious it can be. Using automation with Massive is a fairly straight forward process and it pairs very nicely with the possible macro controls.
If you don’t know what automation is, it’s basically the process of making fine edits that change over time to any parameter of any plugin or track in a DAW. For instance, volume, pan, FX amount and in this case, controls within Massive.
Any DAW will allow you to draw in automation using the mouse. Automation with Massive can become a more musical endeavor if you want it to.
By assigning various parameters within Massive to different knobs or sliders on your keyboard or controller, you can record automation with Massive in realtime.
A quick side note, most DAW’s have an “Automation Snap To Grid” feature which will help keep any automation musical. It’s different for each DAW so check into how to activate it. It really makes the automation process a lot quicker.
