Logic Automation problem
      #1002085 - 07/08/12 08:48 AM
Greetings.

I have a problem in Logic 9.1.7 (64bit).

When copying over large chunks (multiple regions) on the arrange page some of the automation data isn't copying reliably. I had one bunch of audio regions which just refused to copy the automation (there was some automation but most missing) and just now I've been getting missing volume curves ie. the copied region just has a straight line instead of a curve...is this a know bug????

Help me Obi Wan keDesmond....

Oi, less of the "Wanke", please..!

I always have to be careful moving automation around, I don't find Logic does a brilliant job at working out what you want and doing it, particularly it's ways of changing lines between points and filling in when adding in points. I think it's mostly following a predictable algorithm, the effects of which aren't often what you musically want.

No real advice but be careful, use track automation folder view when necessary, and check that what is happening is what you want, so you can be on top of the changes you need to make. Sometimes I will convert to MIDI, edit that, and then move it back to automation, it really depends on the task.

Thanks Desmond-

yeah I am aware of the various 'being careful' tips, but this is something different. I mean, it's right in front of you as a curve, you move the region and it's become a straight line. Also, I'm getting what appears to be two lines sometimes, like a hairpin shape...wtf's going on?!

ps. 'wanke' genuinely unintentional !

Have a look at the underlying automation data in the track automation folder - sometimes, it's possible to have overlapping regions here containing two sets of (conflicting) automation data. I haven't had this in LP9, but certainly did in LP8.

Sometimes, if something genuinely weird is happening, it's best to clear out the automation completely on that track and redo it (or convert it to MIDI, move it to another track, and reset up the new track).

Can you do a screen grab of the issue you're seeing?
