Make Full Use of Automation

You can automate most things in modern DAWs.

This is an immense resource! A lot of people are not really utilizing it – I’ve only fully started tapping into it recently myself.

Some a little uncommon but very useful automation objects include:

  • Compression ratio & threshold
  • EQ curve/Q-factor
  • Track mute & solo
  • Insert & send bypasses

The list goes on!

As with anything else, you shouldn’t go overboard with automation. Everything you do in a mix needs to have a reason. Clever use of automation can open up lots of new doors however.

Whenever you have a problem in the mix, make it into a habit to ask yourself the question: “Can I solve this through automation?”.
