Spice up your sounds with Automation on BandLab

How to use Automation on BandLab

The word automation implies some sort of robot or AI doing the work for you. Well, in the world of DAWs, not quite. Automation allows you to record the movements of a fader, knob or button that’s controlling a parameter, like volume, effects and more, in your tracks. It’s what gives music its dynamic feel, movement, textures and excitement.

In this tutorial, we teach you how to use BandLab’s automation in the web Mix Editor. Simply by applying complex automation on filters, effects and volume you can spice up a dry loop into something much more dynamic and interesting.
