How-to: Use Automation

Automation is when a parameter change over time automatically while you play back your song. You can automate any channel parameter including volume, panning, effect and instrument parameters.

Step 1

Each channel in Soundation Studio has its own automation drop down menu.

Select "Volume" if you want to automate the volume parameter. A grey line will appear in the track.

Step 2

If you click on the track a dot will appear where you clicked. If you want a smooth fade in of this track, make a series of ascending dots so that the volume will increase accordingly.

If you press play you will hear the track fade in and see the volume slider go up.

Step 3

If you want to remove all of the current automation for the selected parameter, right click on the track and select "Clear Automation".
