    hey. im new to the DAW scene. i have access to an MBOX factory and Pro Tools LE 7.

    I have a 16 track song and i want to do automation; as in during the course of the song several instruments, say the 'strings' are automatically panned left and then right and then center, or like i can set several instruments volume lower at certain sections and then higher again automatically in the song kinda thing.

    ive no idea how to do this! although, under the 'window' menu, theres an option called 'automation enable' i clicked it and havent gotten anywhere since then.

    any help would be great!

    I dont want to sound like a jerk, but have you read the manual????

    Its very informative, and has a great section on all the automation parameters.

    I prefer to "latch" until I get a rough level, then "write" to start and end, then
    run through in "touch" for the final adjustments, and fader rides.
