A while ago I was fooling around with auto read in the mix window in PT LE.
I am new working with PT. I somehow adjusted each track wwhile listening to the song and then when I mastered the track the track levels automatically moved by themselves duplicating what I did.

I though this was pretty cool but at the time and now I did not know what I was doing. Can someone explain to me the purpose of auto read and the steps in using it. Thanks!

The reason you want this is because no mix should be static. Depending on who & what is playing, you need to bring volumes up & down. You have the flex ability to have flexibility. It's called a dynamic mix and all mixes should be dynamic. This has nothing to do with the dynamics but how the mix changes dynamically.

The dynamics aren't something you want anyhow. That's why God created compressors. So you can crush the dynamics while dynamically mixing.
