Chapter 13.  Working with Automation  >  Recording Automation

Recording Automation

Because you can record automation in the Mixer window, as well as by using automation subtracks, we will look at these two methods separately. If you are using an external control surface to control specific parameters inside Cubase, you will probably find that recording automation is easier when done through the control surface, rather than adding events in the automation tracks associated with each channel in the project window. On the other hand, editing previously recorded automation might be easier if done through the project window.

Before heading into the automation section, remember that you can set the levels and pans of audio channels in the Mixer without using automation, just as you would on a normal mixer desk. This allows you to monitor your tracks appropriately without adding automation to them. As long as the Write or Read Automation buttons (found in the Common panel on the left of the Channel Mixer window) are not activated (not lit), the faders, pan, and any other effect settings stay at the same position. If the Read Automation button is not activated in the Common panel, Cubase will not read any automation. However, disabling automation doesn’t mean that you lose the automation you have previously recorded.
