Hey now. Can the mute button be automated? Or can i use it during a bounce to mute one track?
If you're meaning turning the mute on and off throughout the song and it staying like that i'd say no that can't happen but you can mute a track during playback
Mutes can be automated just like faders, plugins, sends ect. You can either draw in the automation or record the mutes as the track plays.
Yes you can. In the track edit window on each track the window that toggles between blocks ,waveform, and volume also contains a mute window. Draw in your mutes with the mouse and it's done. Or do it the slow way and put it in automation write and then turn it off and on as the song plays and it will record your automation into the above mentioned window.
Instead of mutes you can also just draw the volume line to the bottom in the volume window on each track and it will do basically the same thing. I put the group window on "all" at the start of a song and draw all the tracks up tite at once with volume edits.
I always draw the mutes in guess i just do it the old fashion way. Thanks guys for correcting me learn something new everyday.
Thats good info. thanks to all. I'm assuming that its the same with panning?
Yep, you can automate volume, pan, mute, and aux sends in PTLE.
Don't forget all the sliders in all the RTAS plugins.......
... you can pretty much automate anything that moves.
you can automate EVERYTHING!!
You must write the mute automation before you bounce. While bouncing to disk, you have no access to any channel or plug-in parameters, but, assuming your computer is up to snuff, all automation written into the session will be processed as you bounce. I have had problems with slower computers properly executing all automated parameters during the bounce.
If only PTLE came with a decent manual.
You are right about that!! Well thanks to these forums my recording/mix came out real good. My cpu is up to snuff for I build them myself. The automation works great. I would love for you guys to hear it. How does that work? I swear once you figure out PTLE and how to mic a drum set you can really get some good sounds. Thanks guys!!!!!
