Modulating over time?


Old musician, brand new to logic. I'm on X, using only stock sounds and effects with my typing keyboard and trackpad (on mac). I'm wondering how I modulate a track over time? All I can find is the modulation for the track and no matter how I record and alter it, the track doesnt change over time, it just ends up where I left the slider.

Google didn't help. This is kind of important for what I need to do. Thanks so much!!


Press A to go into automation view. Choose an automation mode for your track from either the track header or the channel strip (most likely Touch or Latch will serve your needs well). Hit play, move the controls on screen, and that's it. Your fader/knob movement will be captured.

Of course there's a lot more you can do with automation. But that'll get you going.
