Digital Performer allows you to automate the mixing process so that changes to the mix can be made as the track plays. As you are playing a sequence, you can adjust individual faders and knobs and those adjustments will be recorded. You can then view those changes on playback.
There are five different automation modes that allow you to control how the automation process is handled in Digital Performer. All of these modes can be accessed directly from the Mixing Board window.
Overwrite. When playback begins, the existing automation setup is overwritten with the current settings. Punch out will occur when you click on the Stop button in the Control Panel.
Touch. In Touch mode, automation starts when you touch a fader or knob. Only the settings in the tracks you adjust are affected. Punch out occurs when you let go of any of the controls.
Latch. In Latch mode, automation starts when you touch a fader or knob and continues until you stop the playback. All of the existing data is replaced .
Trim Touch. In Trim Touch mode, automation starts when you touch a fader or knob and ends when you let go of any controls. Rather than replacing the existing data, the data is scaled.
Trim Latch. In Trim Latch mode, automation starts when you touch a fader or knob and continues until you stop the playback. Existing data is scaled rather than being replaced.
To record automation, you must enable the recording in the tracks you'd like to adjust. From there you play your track and make your changes. The mode that you have selected will determine how the data is handled.
Once you have recorded your changes, you can play them back and watch as they change while the sequence plays.
When using automation, you can change the way Digital Performer handles certain events by adjusting parameters in the Setup window.
