I do it the other way round, I automate the gain of the gain plugin, then use the normal volume fader for overall level of the track.Pop a gain plug into your channel, and use that for a global gain increase or decrease. There is also a global key command, but I do not know it off the top of my head (I just use the gain plug-in ;-)).
As Doug said, there is. But most people I think would prefer to combine volume/gain automation as outlined in the posts aboveThanks for both replies.
It get's me wondering why Logic has not developed a 'shift-click or shift-drag' way to do this.
The same way you automated the volume, but with gain. You automate the gain parameter of the gain plugin.How would I automate the gain plug-in so that the fader is free to tweak?
A very good point, often all you need is a couple of region gains in order to avoid automation, which, let's face it, is not a bad thing to do.Let's not forget the much underused (or at least under talked about) gain feature in the region parameters. It may or may not be useful in the OP's situation; but is worth remembering. I know I myself never seem to intuitively think of it or reach for it. It hasn't seemed to permeate the deeper layers of my brain or memory yet
