Console Automation - Modes of Automation

Modes of Automation

  • Auto Write: used the first time automation is created or when writing over existing automation
  • Auto Touch: writes automation data only while a fader is touched/faders return to any previously automated position after release
  • Auto Latch: starts writing automation data when a fader is touched/stays in position after release
  • Auto Read: digital Audio Workstation performs the written automation
  • Auto Off: automation is temporarily disabled

All of these include the mute button. If mute is pressed during writing of automation, the audio track will be muted during playback of that automation. Depending on software, other parameters such as panning, sends, and plug-in controls can be automated as well. In some cases, automation can be written using a digital potentiometer (d-pot) instead of a fader.

Famous quotes containing the words modes of, automation and/or modes:

    The history of reform is always identical; it is the comparison of the idea with the fact. Our modes of living are not agreeable to our imagination. We suspect they are unworthy. We arraign our daily employments.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Besides black art, there is only automation and mechanization.
    Federico García Lorca (1898–1936)

    The human condition is such that pain and effort are not just symptoms which can be removed without changing life itself; they are the modes in which life itself, together with the necessity to which it is bound, makes itself felt. For mortals, the “easy life of the gods” would be a lifeless life.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)
