Composing : Automation in Mixing by Tim Price

Automation in Mixing

Just thought I'd share this great Sound on Sound article on creative uses of mix automation. Automation can be a brilliant way to help a mix 'breathe', whether it's volume automation to adjust the balance or bring out details, plug-in parameters like EQ settings, or FX send levels.

Terrific share, Tim. Thanks!

Thanks Tim, I often see a lot of young composers writing with "flat" automation. A little CC1/CC11 (in midi) can go a long way, as well as carving out space volume wise on "audio" material. Thanks for the post!
