I have a question, how do i go about adding an automation filter to my drums. basically i want to start the drums off in my track by automating the frequencey so theyre low then as they progress they reach the normal default frequency and then stay at that point for the remainder of the track. How is the best way of going about this? since my drums are not audio sounds they are created using the sequencer.
First you need to put the drum sample itself into the mixer. you can do this by clicking on the drum sample in the step sequencer, then press Ctrl + L. After this you can either (depending on what you want to do) Put a fruity love philter on there or create automation clip of the volume for the kick itself. I will explain both ways.
FRUITY LOVE PHILTER: Once you have added the KICK to the MIXER, go to the mixer (if its not there already) and look for where that kick is located. Once you have found the kick you can go to the mixer plugins (for me its on the right) and add FRUITY LOVE PHILTER. From here Click on the Arrow in the TOP LEFT CORNER, and go to the preset DEFAULT. The MIDDLE KNOB is the cut off knob basically showing what is cut off from the sample you are using. Right click that knob, and press CREATE AUTOMATION CLIP. This will be put into your SONG BOARD (or whatever its called) then you mess around with the levels to the desired sound. THE HIGHER THE LEVEL THE MORE PRESENT THE SAMPLE WILL BE and vise versa.
AUTOMATION CLIP WITH THE KICK VOLUME: Once you have added the KICK to the MIXER, go to the mixer (if its not there already) and look for where that kick is located. Once you have found the kick, you will see a little volume slide below it, RIGHT CLICK it and click CREATE AUTOMATION CLIP. Then Adjust the levels to create the desired effect you want. THE LOWER THE LEVEL THE LESS PRESENT IT IS. And vise versa.
