Chapter 12. Mixing It Down > Taking Snapshots

Taking Snapshots

SONAR provides a number of different methods of mixdown, one of which is called Snapshots. Using Snapshots, you can take a “picture” of all the current control values in the Console and Track views and then store those values in your project at a specified Now time. For example, if your project is a pop song with a number of different sections (such as the intro, verse, chorus, and so on), you might want to change the mix each time a new section is reached by the Now time during playback. You can do so easily by creating a different Snapshot at the beginning of each section of the song. During playback, as the Now time passes a point in the project where a Snapshot is stored, the values for all the recorded controls are changed to reflect the Snapshot automatically.

NOTE

LINKED AUTOMATION

For automation purposes, the controls in the Console view and the parameters in the Track view work together rather than independently. This means if you automate a control in the Console view, its corresponding parameter in the Track view will be automated as well and vice versa.
